The Center for Risk Management of Engineering Systems was founded by the University of Virginia in 1987 as a University-wide resource. It develops theory, methodology, and technology to assist in the management of risk for a variety of engineering systems. Working closely with faculty and students at the Center, industry and government sponsors of research contribute their unique strengths and interests.

The Center's areas of expertise in risk modeling, assessment, and management include:

  • Large scale and complex hierarchical systems,
  • Critical infrastructure protection,
  • Information assurance and C4ISR,
  • Infrastructure interdependencies,
  • Safety-critical systems,
  • Transportation systems,
  • Computer-based systems, including hardware and software performance reliability,
  • Reliability modeling of multiple failure modes in complex systems,
  • Environmental impacts, and
  • Water resources and technology management.

Two tenure-track faculty, Professors Yacov Y. Haimes and Barry H. Horowitz, and two full-time research faculty, Associate Professor James H. Lambert and Assistant Professor Joost R. Santos, constitute the core faculty at the Center. They are supported by Visiting Professor Irwin Pikus, Center Manager Erika Evans, and over a dozen graduate students. The Center also draws on faculty and students from other schools within the University (including Law, Business Medicine, Architecture, and the College of Arts and Sciences).
