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. If you are interested in finding a Master in Computer Simulation that suits your interests, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

M.Sc. in Cognitive Systems

Open University Of Cyprus
Online Full time 2 years September 2018 Cyprus Cyprus Online

To teach the new paradigm of cognitive computing, the M.Sc. Program in Cognitive Systems brings together two main scientific areas: Cognitive Psychology, and Artificial Intelligence in Computer Science. Aiming, on the one hand, for the prospective students to understand the basis for human cognition, the Program is strongly influenced by Cognitive Psychology and includes learning modules that explore the fundamentals of perception, learning, mental representation, and reasoning in humans. Aiming, on the other hand, for the prospective students to be able to design cognitive systems, the Program places its emphasis on the investigation of computational methods and tools for understanding and designing cognitive systems, and includes learning modules from Connectionist and Symbolic Artificial Intelligence, from Machine Learning, and learning modules on recent developments in Cognitive Computing. [+]

Joint degree by the Open University of Cyprus, School of Pure and Applied Sciences and the University of Cyprus, Department of Psychology and Department of Computer Science. Since the inception of the computing paradigm, the prevalent metaphor for a computer has been that of a multi-purpose tool, as exemplified by the use of “command lines” and “desktops” at the interface between humans and computers. The unparalleled prevalence of computing-enabled devices in our everyday lives and the widespread access to information over the Web suggests a more apt metaphor for a modern computer, that of an assistant. Humans no longer use, but rather collaborate with their devices to solve a cognitive task, with each party learning and adapting to the capabilities of the other. Communication and decision-making happen at a level that is transparent to, and cognitively-compatible with, human abilities and limitations. One no longer speaks of human-computer interaction, but of human-computer symbiosis. To teach the new paradigm of cognitive computing, the M.Sc.
