Description

Through an introduction to complex systems and their characteristics, this subject allows the students to develop their knowledge and skills to deal with the so-called wicked problems they will encounter in practice, problems that do not lend themselves to 'solutions' but may allow some redress. Students will encounter and analyse complex systems and ways to cope with this complexity. This subject provides opportunities to students to assess the impacts of their interventions in such systems by considering the cultural, social, economic, institutional and technical aspects of these interventions.
