Acharya Institute of Technology (AIT) is a private college located in Bengaluru, India. AIT offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in engineering and management.
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 modeling and simulation (M&S) engineering graduates have jobs as great programmers, game developers, analytics specialists, skillful innovators, and decision-makers in areas such as:
- 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.
Acharya undergraduate students will do their “senior project” under the co-supervision of ODU faculty via ODUGlobal. This course will count double as a graduate independent study.
Also during the first year, students will take 2 ODU graduate online courses and 1 Acharya graduate course, such as statistics, while in India.
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.
Interested in earning a Ph.D.?
To continue study for a Ph.D. degree at ODU, the top 20% (of a minimum of 5 students) completing their ODU M.S. degree program will receive ODU financial support to cover 60%-100% of tuition plus a stipend.
