M.S. in Modeling and Simulation

The MODSIM curriculum is designed to develop and integrate modeling and simulation skills with special emphasis on application of these skills in virtual environments. The objectives of the program are:

  • to foster and support interdisciplinary research in the field of modeling and simulation,
  • to meet the modeling and simulation needs of the defense industry, and public and private sectors

Modeling and Simulation is a non-thesis program and mainly intended for working professionals. It has no deficiency program and has two tracks: Decision Models and Virtual Environments. Each track has background requirements, core courses, and elective courses as defined in the curricula. Students are expected to complete the program in 5 semesters. Students enrolled in this program pay a tuition fee based on the number of credit hours they register for every semester. The amount of tuition fee per credit hour is determined at the beginning of every academic year.
