ODU Coronavirus Response for Fall 2020:  More Information >>

Why ODU for Modeling & Simulation Engineering?

Prepare for a valuable career with ODU's interdisciplinary modeling and simulation engineering program. You'll learn to communicate important information to technical and nontechnical professionals through simulations and data visualization.

Your program of study at ODU will have a solid foundation in mathematics and basic sciences. You'll also study engineering and computer science concepts.

When you graduate, you'll be ready to enter the workforce, a graduate program, or seek Professional Engineer licensure. Certified modeling and simulation credentials are also a popular next step.

Our professors collaborate with researchers at ODU's Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center. VMASC focuses on cyber security, big data, health care modeling and simulation, educational gaming, and more.

This is the first modeling and simulation undergraduate program to earn accreditation from the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
