In the search of new physics beyond the Standard Model(BSM), there is a class of candidate models in which the Higgs boson emerges as a composite state. Among them, the SU(3) gauge theory with two flavors of fermions in the two-index symmetric (sextet) representation has recently been of some interest. In this talk, I would discuss the recent development of our numerical study of this model using the lattice techniques.
