Old Dominion University was the first to offer the Ph.D. in modeling and simulation in 2000. The MSVE Department offers an undergraduate four-year degree program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Modeling and Simulation Engineering (BS-M&SE). The department also offers programs of graduate study leading to the degrees Master of Engineering, Master of Science, Doctor of Engineering, and Doctor of PhiloSOPhy with a major in Modeling and Simulation. The department's academic programs are coupled with a strong department research program conducted jointly with researchers from the Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center (VMASC). Research activities range from investigation of fundamental modeling and simulation methods and technologies to applications of modeling and simulation in the domains of medicine and health care, transportation, education and gaming, science and engineering, homeland security and defense, and business enterprise decision support.
