Additional Information on Eligibility:

Agency Name

National Science Foundation


The Engineering and Systems Design (ESD) program supports research leading to design theory and to tools and methods that enable implementation of the principles of design theory in the practice of design across the full spectrum of engineered products and systems. The program focus is on gaining an understanding of the basic processes and phenomena underlying a holistic, life-cycle view of design where the total system life-cycle context recognizes the need for advanced understanding of the identification and definition of preferences, analysis of alternatives, effective accommodation of uncertainty in decision-making, and the relationship between data and knowledge in a digitally-supported process and environment. The program funds advances in basic design theory, tools, and software to implement design theory and new design methods that span multiple domains, such as design for the environment, for manufacturability, and for systems.

Fundamental research in system science and system engineering should be submitted to the System Science (SYS) program. Research in which the primary contribution is methods, processes or tools for design of engineered systems should be submitted to the ESD program, and should identify the System Science program as a secondary program.
