Course summary

This course addresses the design, development, procurement, use and management of models and simulations for applications in experimentation, training, testing, analysis and assessment of military forces, systems and equipment.

The application of modelling and simulation continues to enhance and transform both systems development and training. It allows representation of increasingly complex equipment, systems and scenarios for the purposes of decision support and helps to reduce wear on live equipment and on test and training areas.

Who is it for?

The course is suitable for both military and civilian personnel, including those from defence industry and government departments.

Ten places are normally available for the full-time cohort.

Why this course?

On successful completion of the course you will be familiar with the technologies, methodologies, principles and terminology of modelling and simulation as used across defence, including the challenges and issues as well as the benefits. Through use of facilities such as the Simulation and Synthetic Environment Laboratory (SSEL), with its wide range of specialist applications, students will gain a broad understanding of modelling and simulation in areas such as training, acquisition, decision-support, analysis and experimentation.

Your career

This qualification will equip you for simulation-specific appointments within the armed forces or government, or in the defence related activities of commercial organisations.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
