ESD faculty hold innovative dual appointments that commit their time and efforts to both an academic department and to the Division. These dual appointments support the development of new interdisciplinary frameworks and methodologies that define engineering systems as a field of study while faculty remain keenly involved with their engineering, management, or social science departments.

ESD's mission has already attracted over 50 faculty and teaching staff from six engineering departments, and MIT Sloan School of Management and MIT's School of Science and School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences.

MIT is committing additional faculty and financial resources to ESD to assure the program's growth. ESD is currently seeking new faculty at all levels to create innovative educational programs and to conduct scholarly research in the field of engineering systems.
