AbstractThe School of Technology at NAME University designed, developed and implemented a Masterof Science Degree in Modeling, Simulation and Visualization (MSV). In the development of thisdegree program, analyses were done of the stakeholder needs in the area; based on theseanalyses, the School designed the degree to meet “high-tech” workforce need in the region. Theprogram is flexible enough to appeal to students having various academic or professionalbackgrounds within Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) discipline. Thegoal is to prepare graduates who would apply MSV skills in a variety of ways to solve industryand business problems. The program has a fixed plan of study which includes the options forthree elective courses. These elective courses would allow students to tailor the program to theirindividual professional interests and needs. Furthermore, each student is required to complete adirected project dealing with the application of MSV techniques for the solution ofindustry/business problems.This paper describes the design, development and implementation of the interdisciplinary MSVgraduate program in terms of, 1) needs and justification, 2) planning process, 3) programdescription and objectives, 4) curriculum, 5) implementation issues related to faculty, studentsand resources, and 6) examples of MSV related industry projects. The description also includesthe process, starting from a concept paper development through approval of the program by theState Commission of Higher Education.
