The Department of System Engineering offers Ph.D. programs in System Engineering and Military Equipment Research, and engineering master professional programs in the fields of Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management. Among them, System Engineering is the National Key Discipline.
The department has also developed four disciplinary research areas: Equipment System Engineering, Information System Engineering, Systematic Analysis and Simulation Evaluation, and the Theory and Approach of System Engineering.
The department covers such research areas as follows:
(1) Equipment System Engineering
Through research our department has developed it own unique methods in the the areas of reliability analysis and evaluation of small samples, dynamic system security analysis, condition-based maintenance of devices, evaluation of comprehensive support capability, verification and evaluation of maintenance experiments, and system performance evaluation and analysis.
(2) Information System Engineering
The department has researched the basic theory of information system engineering, information system requirement engineering, architecture technology of information systems, multimedia information systems and virtual reality technology, developed its disciplinary advantage in the areas of integrated design of information system, system integration, and information visualization.
(3) System Analysis and Simulation Evaluation
The department has applied system simulation, system analysis and evaluation, and virtual prototype technology to tackle the issue of equipment analysis and evaluation. The department has developed core competencies in application domains such as equipment-oriented operation performance evaluation, equipment system capability evaluation, integration and optimization of virtual prototype design, training simulation, and system top-level design.
(4) System Engineering Theory and Approach
The department conducts research on the comprehensive integration principles and approaches of service-oriented information systems. The department also conducts research on the system comprehensive integration theory system based on information and decision-making advantages, and provides support for the advancement of the comprehensive integration abilities of information systems.
