Brief Overview

The Modeling and Simulation Management Certificate consists of 4 courses designed to enable DoD workforce members to efficiently apply Modeling and Simulation (M&S) tools to support acquisition activities throughout a program lifecycle. M&S acquisition requires substantial up front planning and unique considerations for their effective use. Upon completion of this certificate program, students will be awarded a certificate of completion from the Naval Postgraduate School. The Modeling and Simulation Management Certificate program is targeted primarily at personnel in the DoD Acquisition Workforce but has great benefit for all students who seek further knowledge regarding the purposeful, effective application of M&S systems to support the acquisition lifecycle.
