Modeling and Simulation

In this program, you will learn how to use data to create a virtual representation of a complex system, such as the movement of vehicles on city roads. These visual models help people design and improve these systems, or predict how systems will react in a specific situation. For example, city planners can research how different road systems affect the flow of traffic, and decide on the best road system for their project. Modeling and simulation can be used in a wide range of industries, from store design to manufacturing processes. Our program is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in engineering, science or mathematics.
