Department of Computational Modeling & Simulation EngineeringAssessment & Accreditation

The B.S. in Modeling and Simulation Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Program Educational Objectives

The program educational objectives (PEOs) of the Modeling and Simulation Engineering degree program are consistent with the mission of the institution, the needs of the programs various constituencies, and the ABET criteria. Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve.

Within a few years after graduation, Modeling and Simulation Engineering alumni will have:

  • Established themselves as practicing professionals in modeling and simulation engineering or a related area or engaged in graduate study,
  • Demonstrated their ability to work successfully as a member of a professional team and to function effectively as a responsible professional; and
  • Demonstrated their ability to adapt to changing situations, evolving technologies, and new career challenges.

Student Outcomes

The modeling and simulation engineering program student outcomes are as follows. Modeling and simulation engineering students who qualify for graduation have the following general education characteristics:

  • N-1: an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • N-2: an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  • N-3: an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • N-4: an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  • N-5: an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  • N-6: an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze, and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • N-7: an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Program Outcomes

In addition, students have the following characteristics specific to the modeling and simulation engineering discipline, which expand on the above engineering program outcomes:

The objectives of the Modeling and Simulation Engineering degree program are to produce graduates who will have:

  • NP-1: an ability to model a variety of systems from different domains;
  • NP-2: an ability to select and apply appropriate simulation techniques and tools;
  • NP-3: an ability to apply visualization techniques to support the simulation process.
