Systems Architecture Group for Engineering

The Systems Architecture Group for Engineering (SAGE) researches model driven methods for systems architecting and engineering and engages in collaborative application of model driven architecture methods to fundamental engineering problems.

SAGE Research is focused on the practice of a core research programme that encompasses:

  • Model Driven Architecture(MDA) for Systems Engineering
  • Computational Formalisms for Model Transformation
  • System of Systems Architecture
  • Collaborative Systems Engineering Environments
  • Integration of Software and Systems Engineering


Both established practices and advanced methods from research are taught every semester in the ELP072 Systems Architecture MSc course.
