Modeling and Analysis of Emergent System Behaviors

Course #SE3650

Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months


This course covers the construction of and reasoning about models of system behaviors, including any combination of software, hardware, humans, organizations, and surrounding environment.  Students will study concepts of emergence and work with selected Monterey Phoenix models to develop cognitive skills for detecting, predicting, classifying, and controlling emergent system behaviors.   Students will then deploy their new knowledge and skills to create their own system behavior models and assess them for the presence or absence of expected and unexpected system behaviors.  The concepts and skills taught in this course will help learners think critically and systematically about a system under design, probing automated output for tacit assumptions and overlooked expectations.  This course makes use of example system models across a wide range of application domains and invites students to apply their own personal and professional experiences with systems.
