Corporate-University Alliances and Engineering Systems Research
Author(s)Roth, George L.; Magee, Christopher L.
This symposium is focused on the possibilities for deeper, more fundamental understanding of engineering systems. Many of the papers address characteristics of engineering systems. As noted by others, engineering systems can not be studied in the laboratory. Researchers must venture into these systems for extended periods of time and develop the academic field of study. It is essential for the MIT Engineering Systems Division to find ways for active observational and experimental work to take place in these systems. To sustain their engagement in those systems, and gain validity for their claims, researchers will need to go beyond study to affect practice.
