PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Simulation is the quintessential utility tool. In one way or another, just about every engineering or scientific field uses simulation as an exploration, modeling, or analysis technique. Simulation is not limited to engineering or science. Simulation is used in training, management, and concept exploration and involves constructing human-centered, equipment-centered, and/or stand-alone computer-based models of existing as well as conceptual systems or processes. The purpose of simulation is to evaluate the behavior of the human, organization, equipment, and/or systems under study through the evaluation of output from the corresponding simulation construct. Because of the scale and complexity of modeling and simulation, practitioners have developed both generalized and specialized skills.

CURRICULUM

The Modeling and Simulation Master of Science program requires a minimum of 30 credit hours beyond the bachelor’s degree.

The M&S MS program offers a thesis option and a nonthesis option. Each option requires 15 credit hours of required core courses.

  • Students who select the thesis option must take 9 credit hours of unrestricted electives and 6 thesis credit hours.
  • Students who select the nonthesis option must take 3 credit hours of restricted electives and 12 credit hours of unrestricted electives.

The culminating experience for thesis-option students in the MS program is the final thesis document and the oral defense of the thesis research.

The culminating, capstone experience for nonthesis students is a technical project, which requires a written and oral presentation of the work, completed as part of the required core course IDS 6916 Simulation Research Methods and Practicum. This project is reviewed by panel experts.

Modeling and Simulation MS Electives

In addition to successfully enrolling and completing the core courses, students are required to carefully select electives with the guidance of a faculty adviser. Elective choices should be made with the intent to strengthen a research interest and/or area of focus in order to meet the individual student’s educational goals and objectives.

Listed below are suggested courses in various areas of focus or specialization. These course groupings are mere guides, are not exhaustive and are only meant to assist with advising and course selection in order to meet the individual student’s educational goals and objectives. They are not intended to restrict elective choices among focus areas as we strongly encourage Modeling and Simulation students to maintain an interdisciplinary approach to their graduate studies.

If a student identifies another UCF course which may be of value to his/her modeling and simulation research area, but is not already identified in a list below, he/she may request approval from the Graduate Program Director for the course to be used as an elective in the Graduate Plan of Study. All such requests must be made in advance of enrolling in the course.

Those electives categorized as “General” would be appropriate for all students regardless of focus area. The remaining categories are grouped by area of research interest.

Plan of Study

After admission to the Modeling and Simulation MS program, students should file a Graduate Plan of Study (GPS) with the Modeling and Simulation Graduate Program Office.

The purpose of the GPS is to design an appropriate program of coursework to support a student's area of graduate study and to meet the specific educational needs, goals and objectives of that student. The coursework must be selected to form a unified, cohesive plan of study. The plan of study must have 50 percent of its content composed of 6000-level courses.

For thesis students, the GPS should be developed under the supervision of the thesis adviser(s) and members of the Thesis Advisory Committee, although initially it may be constructed under the supervision of the M&S Graduate Program Office. For nonthesis students, the plan of study should be developed under the supervision of the M&S Graduate Program Office.

Changes in the Graduate Plan of Study can be made (due to course offering deletions, schedule conflicts, etc.) and with the approval of the M&S Graduate Program Office.

Graduate Plans of Study for MS students should be on file with the College of Graduate Studies by the end of the student's second major term (based on full-time enrollment) and must be on file by the end of the term prior to the term of expected graduation.

Equipment Fee

Full-time students in the Modeling and Simulation MS program pay a $27 equipment fee each semester that they are enrolled. Part-time students pay a $13.50 equipment fee each semester that they are enrolled.

Independent Learning

IDS 6916 Simulation Research Methods and Practicum provides the independent learning experience for the Modeling and Simulation MS program.

Application Requirements

For information on general UCF graduate admissions requirements that apply to all prospective students, please visit the Admissions section of the Graduate Catalog. Applicants must apply online. All requested materials must be submitted by the established deadline.

Students who enter the Master of Science in Modeling and Simulation program are expected to have an academic and/or work background that has prepared them in mathematics (introductory calculus and probability and statistics) and computer “literacy,” including proficiency with word processing, spreadsheet, and database programs, and, preferably, familiarity with at least one higher order programming language (e.g., C++). Students with undergraduate degrees in Engineering, Computer Science, or Mathematics will generally have this background.

For students with less technical academic preparation, the core course IDS 5719 Introduction to Quantitative Aspects of Modeling and Simulation, will prepare them to pursue several, but not all, of the focus areas. For example, these students could pursue the Simulation Management or Human Systems focus areas, but would need a number of prerequisite courses in mathematics, statistics, and computer science to pursue focus areas such as Simulation Infrastructure. IDS 5719 Introduction to Quantitative Aspects of Modeling and Simulation has a math prerequisite of a one semester introductory to calculus course (e.g., MAC 2233 Concepts of Calculus or MAC 2241 Calculus for Life Sciences).

In addition to the general UCF graduate application requirements, applicants to this program must provide:

  • One official transcript (in a sealed envelope) from each college/university attended
  • Résumé or Curriculum Vitae
  • Goal statement
    • The goal statement should discuss all relevant professional background and any previous research and/or teaching experience. The statement should explain the motivation behind the pursuit of a Master’s degree in Modeling and Simulation. Future educational and career goals after the completion of the applicant’s master study should be discussed.
    • If the applicant is interested in completing a Master thesis, then the applicant must clearly describe the particular area of research interest. The applicant should identify at least one UCF faculty member who shares a similar research focus and is believed to be best suited to serve as a potential thesis advisor.
    • The goal statement should between 500 and 1,000 words.
  • Two letters of recommendation
    • The letters of recommendation should be from faculty members, university administrators and employers. The letters, which must be current to the application, should address the educational and career goals of applicant. The letter writers should also know the applicant well enough to discuss the applicant’s capacity to perform, excel and succeed in a graduate program. Letters for Master's thesis students must discuss the applicant’s ability to perform graduate-level research.
  • Applicants applying to this program who have attended a college/university outside the United States must provide a course-by-course credential evaluation with GPA calculation. Credential evaluations are accepted from World Education Services (WES) or Josef Silny and Associates, Inc. only.

Applications are accepted for the fall and spring terms only.

Readmission

Applicants who are reapplying for admission need not resubmit transcripts and GRE scores if the transcripts and scores are previously on file with UCF. However, the following application requirements do need to be current for the new application for readmission: 

  • Résumé/Curriculum Vitae 
  • Goal Statement 
  • Letters of Recommendation
Prerequisites

Students who enter the Modeling and Simulation Program are expected to have an academic and/or work background that has prepared them in mathematics (introductory calculus and probability and statistics) and computer literacy, including proficiency with word processing, spreadsheet, and database programs, and, preferably, familiarity with at least one higher order programming language (e.g., C/C++, Visual Basic, Java, etc.). Students with undergraduate or graduate degrees in Engineering, Computer Science, or Mathematics will generally have this background.

For students with less technical academic preparation, the core course DIG 5876 Introduction to Quantitative Aspects of Modeling and Simulation, will prepare them for several, but not all, aspects of the program. However, some students may need a number of prerequisite courses in Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science in order to pursue one or more areas of study.
