Addis Ababa University, New Mexico State University, and the METals and Engineering Corporation Systems Engineering Initiative is directed toward applying advanced systems engineering approaches – via the three academic cornerstones of teaching, research, and service – to help develop and implement resolutions of issues that are vital to the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE). This initiative employed a strategic planning tool (the Vital Issues Process) to identify and prioritize the vital issues. Next, a one-week survey class in advanced systems engineering was provided to the METals and Engineering Corporation professionals and graduate students from the Addis Ababa Institute of Technology within Addis Ababa University. The case studies that were the focus of the survey class were drawn from the high priority vital issues that were identified via the Vital Issues Process. The three academic cornerstones are fundamental to this initiative insofar as the teaching is accommodated via the class, the service was addressed by building the class project around issues that are vital to the FDRE, and the research dimension was a natural outcome of the portfolio of options that were identified for resolving the vital issues. The following links provide specifics of the results of Phase One of this initiative.
