The Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC), based in Hoboken and led by Stevens Institute of Technology, has received the highest contract value award in the university's history with a $60 million, five-year renewal contract from the United States Department of Defense.
According to the announcement, the SERC, designated a University Affiliated Research Center by the DoD in 2008, leverages research and expertise of twenty-plus collaborator universities, including its principal collaborator, the University of Southern California (USC), to provide broad systems thought leadership to manage critical 21st century challenges facing the nation's defense and intelligence communities.
With this second five-year contract, the SERC will extend or introduce 11 long-term research programs in four research areas: enterprises and systems of systems; trusted systems; systems engineering and systems management transformation; and human capital development, Stevens said in a statement.
