UCF is a world leader in Modeling and Simulation graduate education. The School of Modeling, Simulation, and Training is relatively new, having launched in 2018 to formally recognize the exceptional growth and success of UCF’s modeling and simulation graduate programs and research conducted at the nationally recognized Institute for Simulation and Training (IST). The school is home to modeling, simulation, and training graduate degree programs, and certificates. SMST also houses IST and more than a dozen associated research labs focused on modeling and simulation and their application to a variety of fields from defense to medicine. UCF offers rigorous academic Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy curricula that ensure a strong core yet provide students the flexibility to shape their education.
