Abstract:

As Modeling Simulation MS becomes increasingly important, there is a significant and growing need to educate and train MS practitioners and researchers. The Department of Defense DoD has a growing need for an educated MS workforce. This need includes users, developers, managers and executive-level personnel, which can effectively apply MS to DoD requirements. While several universities offer academic MS degree programs, the time and expense of earning these degrees often limit the number of people that go through these programs. Professional education is an alternative for gaining MS skills and knowledge, and courses are offered by a range of university and commercial groups. The observations in this paper begin to outline both the need and available options for MS professional education. This collection of position papers begins a conversation on the DoDs need for professional MS education and how the MS Body of Knowledge might fit within that strategy. These position papers are contributed in preparation of a panel discussion and edited for the supporting proceedings.
