Education

NICO students, postdocs, and faculty organize a regular reading group to discuss foundational material and the latest research in complex systems.  For more information, see the reading group homepage.

NICO faculty engage in undergraduate, graduate, and executive education on the topics of networks and complex systems.  Representative courses taught by NICO faculty and other courses related to NICO interests are listed below.  Courses numbered 395 and 495 are taught on an experimental basis, often being assigned permanent course numbers later.  Yearly course planners, and more information about the courses, can be found here.
