Abstract : Welcome to the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) 2011 Annual Report. The SERC, competitively awarded by the Department of Defense to Stevens Institute of Technology in 2008, has grown to 22 collaborating institutions, over 20 research activities, and as we go to print, we have our 299th researcher. We welcomed the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force as new strategic sponsors. In our third year, we are starting to see the impact of our research on the systems engineering community. The SERC engaged on an important endeavor this year to refine our vision, reflecting the dramatically evolving landscape of DoD science and technology priorities. We are exploring engineering transformation, security from a systems perspective, systems of systems and enterprise modeling, risk assessment techniques, and workforce development. We are also maturing our operational strategies and support systems to evolve the SERC into a national and global resource. To tackle these priorities requires us to strengthen our network. It is both a challenge and a reward to bring together multiple universities and facilitate opportunities for faculty and students to engage in impactful research. We are working to deepen our relationships with our collaborators, expand our work with sponsors, and go beyond research and into transition.
