As the need for professionals with systems modeling expertise grows, the Systems Modeling program of Worcester Polytechnic Institute offers a foundation in system dynamics and in the underpinnings of how mathematical modeling is used in other disciplines.


Key Features

The Systems Modeling program of Worcester Polytechnic Institute strengthens your understanding of and experience with the formal and computer simulation-based approaches to the construction and analysis of mathematical models. You'll explore these models in the context of economic, social, and physical systems. Students learn how to apply modeling concepts across disciplines so they are able to use the skills and apply them to real-world situations and scenarios.

This interdisciplinary degree is granted by the Social Science & Policy Studies Department and the Mathematical Sciences Department and includes courses in mathematics and system dynamics.

Programme Structure

  • Course work builds on methodologies such as feedback control theory, optimization, numerical methods, and computer simulation, but you'll also incorporate various electives in the engineering, science, and management departments.
  • You’ll explore how those methodologies are applied across various disciplines including management, biology, ecology, and economics. Complete course descriptions can be found in the current graduate course schedule. See Graduate Admissions for admissions information.
