Education and Outreach
Our Education and Outreach (E&O) vision is to support the mission of the project in a manner that is thoroughly integrated into the research and knowledge-transfer programs. At the core of the E&O initiative will be the formation of a new, highly ambitious and highly cross-discipline educational program called Complex Systems Science & Engineering, with sub-disciplines in BioSystems Science & Engineering, and Embedded Systems Science & Engineering.
Key aspects of the project’s E&O program includes an annual Minority-Focused Intersession Workshop for Undergraduates on Understanding and Analyzing Complex Embedded and Biological Systems to be hosted at member institution Lehman College, CUNY; involvement in the JPL Research Affiliates Program, which will allow grads and post-grads from the participating universities to gain hands-on experience in a world-famous aerospace R&D center. We will also implement a series of CMACS Summer Schools for Graduate and Postdoctoral Students, to be hosted at member institutions.
A shorter version of the course was offered as a research school at ENS Lyon in 2014.
