Engineering Systems and Services
The department of Engineering Systems and Services (ESS) operates on the interface where complex systems meet engineering. Energy, mobility and ICT systems and services are continuously converging. The Department therefore contributes to Comprehensive Engineering from a systems integration perspective.
ESS analyses, models and shapes these complex systems, using cutting-edge tools such as Agent Based Simulation and Modelling, ICT-architecting, Choice Behaviour Modelling and Cost Benefit Analysis. Human behaviour, economics, law and regulation and the fact that systems recurrently impact behaviour are all taken into account.
ESS truly integrates the social sciences into systems engineering. We design system architectures and market mechanisms that enable the transition to renewable energy, sustainable mobility and ubiquitous computing.
