Description

Moderated by Dr. David “Fuzzy” Wells, Interim Director, IST, School of Modeling, Simulation and Training at UCF, presenters of the February installment of NTSA’s monthly webinar series discussed how we define our career and its fields, our professional development, and the ways we institutionalize M&S. The conversation included education, certification, and recognition. Watch the webinar recording to understand this important triad.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Modeling and simulation (M&S) professionals of today have evolved from practitioners in disciplines that include education, training, engineering, human factors, and business development. Over the years, this profession has become increasingly mature, now offering M&S degrees, a range of associated conferences, and new areas of application. But what are the opportunities for M&S professionals today to obtain, retain, and expand their discipline and specialized competencies? As we span the M&S workforce of today, how do we define our career and its fields, our professional development, and the ways we institutionalize M&S? This conversation includes education, certification, and recognition. The NTSA February webinar will discuss all three: education, from community college to PhD; certification (the Certified Modeling and Simulation Professional); and recognition (e.g., the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS)). Attend the webinar to understand this important triad—and to contribute to its realization!

Presenters:

  • Dr. David “Fuzzy” Wells, Interim Director, IST, School of Modeling, Simulation and Training, University of Central Florida (Moderator)
  • Lindsey Spalding, Director, STEM Programs, The National Center of Simulation
  • Dr. Ivar Oswalt, Senior M&S Associate, The MIL Corporation
  • Dr. Eric Weisel, Executive Director, Virginia Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation Center (VMASC), Old Dominion University
