Old Dominion University (ODU) and Acharya Institute of Technology (AIT) have a partnership to help students earn a master's degree in Modeling and Simulation Engineering.

You'll start with online ODU classes while you finish your AIT degree, complete a graduate certificate from ODU, and then travel to ODU's main campus in Norfolk, Virginia, USA to complete the Master of Science (M.S.) degree.

Why get a degree from ODU?

ODU is a leading institution in engineering education and research, offering bachelor's, master's, and doctorate degrees in this exciting topic. Our M&S engineering graduates have jobs as great programmers, game developers, analytics specialists, skillful innovators, and decision-makers in areas such as:

  • cybersecurity
  • physics-based gaming
  • sea-level rise
  • high performance computing and big data
  • medical and healthcare simulation

How It Works

1 Year Hybrid Online in India + 1 Year at ODU's Campus in the U.S.

Step One
Acharya undergraduate students will do their“senior project” under the co-supervision of ODU faculty via Distance Learning. This course will count double as a graduate independent study.

Step Two
Also during the first year, students will take 2 ODU graduate DL courses and 1 Acharya graduate course, such as statistics, while in India.

Step Three
Receive your ODU Graduate Certificate. Then, spend one year on ODU campus (in Virginia, USA) to complete a M.S. degree by taking four more courses and completing a thesis.
