Further your background and expertise with a PhD in modeling and simulation. This is a rigorous research program designed to train individuals for careers in teaching and research in the public or private sector. Students will have the opportunity to work with our faculty on research projects and gain experience solving real world problems.

The purpose of the course is to provide an understanding of the finite element method (FEM) as derived from an integral formulation perspective. The course will demonstrate the solutions of (1-D and 2-D) continuum mechanics problems such as solid mechanics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Prerequisites: permission of the instructor.
Principles of combat modeling and simulation. Introduction including history, basic definitions, and best practice. Algorithms for modeling movement, sensing effects and behavior. Overview of modern combat models. Interoperability and integration into operational environments. Prerequisites: MSIM 603.
The course covers the theory and techniques for building effective and efficient synthetic environments for modeling and simulation applications. Topics include physics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and advanced modeling and rendering. The emphasis is on producing visually realistic synthetic environments based on effective approximations of physics and other related principles. Prerequisites: MSIM 541 or equivalent.
Students entering the Doctor of Philosophy program in Modeling & Simulation Engineering should meet the minimum university admission requirements (Graduate Admission)
Master's degree in an engineering or science discipline closely related modeling and simulation
A minimum grade-point-average in graduate course work of 3.5 (4.0 scale)
Kowledge of mathematical fundamentals including differential and integral calculus, ordinary differential equations, calculus-based probability and statistics, and linear algebra
