Mission

Located at the Engineer Research and Development Center's Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) in Vicksburg, Mississippi, the Institute for Systems Engineering Research's mission is to improve engineering, design, and process systems by developing next-generation computational tools for new systems and products that will assist decision makers in selecting the most appropriate courses of action to resolve issues related to ERDC equities or projects and reduce risk of the U.S. industrial base.

Vision

The Institute's research vision is to revolutionize system engineering processes and virtual prototyping through computational science and engineering leading to a dual use capacity that will enhance innovation in the DoD and the U.S. industrial base. ISER is a collaborative effort between Mississippi State University and ERDC.
