MIT Course Number:
16.888 / ESD.77
This course is mainly focused on the quantitative aspects of design and presents a unifying framework called "Multidisciplinary System Design Optimization" (MSDO). The objective of the course is to present tools and methodologies for performing system optimization in a multidisciplinary design context, focusing on three aspects of the problem:
(i) The multidisciplinary character of engineering systems, (ii) design of these complex systems, and (iii) tools for optimization.
