The purpose of the Modeling, Simulation, and Analysis Certificate Program is to enhance the MS&A capability of selected Air Force students (e.g., within AFRL, LCMC, or AFMC), whether it be uniformed officers (e.g., 62X career field) and civilian personnel (e.g., GS 0800 series of engineers). The applicants for this program are determined in coordination with the Strategic Development Planning & Experimentation (SDPE) Office, who both sponsors and organizationally benefits from this educational program. The curriculum consists of four graduate level courses for a total of 16 graduate credits. No additional electives or research hours are required for the certificate. Typically, students will take one course per quarter depending on which quarter the classes are offered. The courses will be offered in-residence and via distance learning.
