The Design Systems Laboratory is a research lab in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University.  Our mission is to discover, study, and demonstrate new ways in which engineers can design complex systems.  Each of us relies on many such systems in our day-to-day lives, including automobiles, aircraft, the electric grid, and the internet.  Advances in systems design principles and methodology can yield systems that are better performing, cost less, take less time to design, and are more environmentally friendly.  Consequently, we think this research can have a broad impact on society.
