Requisite(s): 94672 Creative Methods and Entrepreneurial Initiatives AND 94669 Project: Data-driven Design Challenges
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This subject introduces complexity concepts and systems thinking. Students probe the nature and characteristics of a range of complex dynamic systems. In the process they explore ways to understand these systems using natural language, mathematics, and multiple techniques for visual and temporal mapping. Through exploring different scenarios and undertaking a series of small-scale projects, the subject challenges students to creatively and rigorously test key qualities they have identified in various complex dynamic systems. Drawing on these insights, students articulate their own questions and proposals for addressing a current or emerging global problem in the field of sustainable futures.
