The MSVE Department offers an undergraduate four-year degree program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Modeling and Simulation Engineering (BS-M&SE). The department also offers programs of graduate study leading to the degrees Master of Engineering, Master of Science, Doctor of Engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy with a major in Modeling and Simulation. The department's academic programs are coupled with a strong department research program conducted jointly with researchers from the Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center (VMASC). Research activities range from investigation of fundamental modeling and simulation methods and technologies to applications of modeling and simulation in the domains of medicine and health care, transportation, education and gaming, science and engineering, homeland security and defense, and business enterprise decision support.
The MSVE Department is located on the first floor of the E. V. Williams Engineering and Computational Sciences Building on the Old Dominion University Norfolk Campus. In addition to the department and faculty offices, this facility also houses several instructional and research laboratories, a virtual reality theater, and a four-walled C.A.V.E. (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment). A significant resource to the department is the Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center located adjacent to the University's Tri-Cities Higher Education Center in Suffolk, Virginia. VMASC occupies a two-story 60,000 square foot building designed to support state-of-the-art research in modeling, simulation and visualization. Some of the center's facilities are used in the department's educational programs; in addition, VMASC researchers teach courses and mentor students in the department's academic programs.
Old Dominion University was the first to offer the Ph.D. in modeling and simulation in 2000. We now are the first to establish an academic department and to offer an undergraduate engineering program in modeling and simulation.
