Abstract

Computational modeling and simulation (MandS) continues to be one of the areas in demand by many in the public and private sectors. While the demand is high, there no established or agreed upon educational program to enable universities to offer a degree in this area. Recently, much attention has been focused on what constitutes a proper educational program for a career in MandS. This paper presents a first version of a possible MandS educational program as well as several case study examples. Such a program, when approved by the University of Nebraska, will be offered in the Electrical Engineering Department as an area of specialization at the undergraduate level. This program is part of a course, curriculum, and laboratory improvement project called Undergraduate STEM Education Initiative in Creative Educational Innovations for Electrical Engineering Students (USE-ICE).
