About the Capability Systems Centre

The Capability Systems Centre at UNSW Canberra is a centre of research excellence focused on disciplines related to the development,  acquisition and sustainment of capability throughout the life cycle; including systems engineering, systems thinking and modelling, systems science, requirements engineering, complex systems and project management.

The principal focus of the Centre is to address shortfalls in research of methodologies, tools and techniques for developing capability. We do this through cutting-edge research and analysis, publications, education, and events; drawing on world-class academic expertise across our disciplinary areas.

The Centre is able to provide research, mentoring and assurance support to decision makers, systems engineers, business analysts, and project, program and portfolio managers in Defence, Government and Industry.

The Capability Systems Centre at UNSW Canberra will deliver the CLC and Capability Management Course  in 2019.

This course is aimed at personnel with responsibilities in the capability domain, whether development, acquisition or sustainment.

It is intended to not only describe the CLC but also explain the broader context and underpinning activities which need to be done to implement it.
