Modeling and Simulation Graduate Certificate

Modeling and Simulation (M&S) is a modern language in science. It is based on the fundamental notion that science proceeds from models that approximate the real world. Simulation permits repeated observation from these models, often coupled with visual representation of quantitative data, which in turn permits analysis (drawing conclusions, verifying and validating those conclusions, and making recommendations based on those conclusions). This Graduate Certificate provides a basic grounding in the concepts of modeling and simulation, an opportunity to develop a specific focus within that field, and a demonstration of skill in applying those concepts.
