Welcome to CISE
An interdisciplinary home for research in methods and applications relevant to the design, analysis, and control of complex systems
Information and systems engineering are disciplines with many crucial applications for our society. These application areas range from communication and sensor networks, robotics, medical imaging, and video surveillance, to modern energy systems and bioinformatics.
As these domains become increasingly complex, there is a critical need to understand, predict, and design for safety, efficiency, robustness, and the public good. With a proven track record of funding and industry collaboration, CISE faculty bring vast research experience to addressing these challenges.
CISE faculty are also advancing Smart Cities concepts, systems and applications – designed to make city life more efficient, cleaner, safer and less costly than ever before while exploring their economic, environmental and public policy implications. This work is in collaboration with faculty across Boston University as well as with external partners.
