Center of Excellence in Systems Engineering

The Systems Engineering laboratories at Purdue Fort Wayne provide educational and research facilities for students and industry.  Funding for these facilities was provided in part by the Lilly Endowment via the Northeast Indiana Talent Initiative.

The function of the Systems Engineering laboratories has been decomposed into two innovative facilities.  The Enterprise Design and Leadership (EDL) Lab focuses on viewing the enterprise as a system, while the Systems Research Lab (SRL) has a more traditional concentration on the product as a system.  They are both sustained by a backbone of engineering software applications to bolster academic capability and foster industry research.

The Center of Excellence has also supported the development of faculty research through computer and equipment donations to the Department of Engineering's Modeling and Simulation Lab.
