Masters Programs in Computer Simulation

Compare 3 Masters Programs in Computer Simulation

Computer Simulation

A master's degree is a course of advanced study in a highly specialized field. Typically begun after the completion of a bachelor’s degree, it often takes one to three years to complete.

What is a Master in Computer Simulation? Computer simulation is a high-tech industry that has a broad range of applications. Through simulation, analysts create detailed virtual systems and examine how they perform. Computer simulation can be applied in many fields, including climate studies, fluid dynamics and materials studies. Depending on where a student chooses to concentrate, they may peruse advanced studies in atmospheric physics, theoretical chemistry or materials science. Computer simulation courses focus on computing, parallel computing and parallel algorithms.

Students can benefit from a Master in Computer Simulation in a number of ways. They will develop an innovative attitude, helping them to have a career in a field that changes often. They may also learn more modern techniques that could further an already established career.

The cost of any master's degree will be impacted by the location of the university or college that the degree is earned from and length of time it takes to complete the degree. Each college that you are interested in will be able to provide specific information about the cost of a degree.

The field of computer simulation is in high demand, and students with a master's will be able to pursue a number of careers. Private industry and many governments hire simulation experts. Positions include those of airport planner, banking analyst, industrial engineer, simulations engineer, product designer and systems engineer. Many analysts will spend much of their time constructing and modifying models to gain a better understanding within the business they work for. The wide range of professional applications means that students will often develop their computer simulation skills with a career path already in mind.

Many universities offer a range of programs that are part of the wide field of computer simulation.

Masters in Computer Simulation. Why choose this course? The MRes Computing Science provides students with foundation training in the basic and advanced research skills sufficient to enter a Doctoral programme. The MRes programme is also suitable for candidates who may wish to obtain a research-oriented degree, but do not wish to commit themselves to a longer period of study. The MRes pathway has a greater research element than the other MSc programmes offered by the School, whilst also giving students the opportunity to gain credit for the taught components. MRes programmes are designed to bridge the gap between undergraduate studies and the skills required by professional researchers. Contact time Students have on average 15 hours of contact time per week with teaching staff through lectures, laboratory sessions and seminars, though this may vary depending on module choices. Additionally, students should allocate at least 25 hours per week for study, coursework assignments and projects. Teaching and assessment The MRes Computing Science is a full-time, one-year programme; it can also be taken part-time over two years. Once on the course, you will specialise in one of the broad areas of the School’s research. You will normally take three taught modules that are related to your area of specialism or that provide you with important background knowledge. You will also take a module in research techniques and a directed study module. The directed study module will related to your area of specialism and, often, it will have a project component.
