Modeling Simulation Design

Banner for Modeling Simulation Design


The mission of this program is to prepare students for employment as Modeling and Simulation Technicians, Modeling and Simulation Artists, and Modeling and Simulation Developers.


This program is project-based and focuses on broad, transferable skills related to the production of simulations including computer based, mobile devices, augmented and virtual reality platforms. Design students will learn how to create the visual elements of a simulation including virtual environments, objects and animation for use in industry standard game engines and platforms. Projects include serious game development for military and educational markets.

Occupational Completion Points (OCPs)

This program is a planned sequence of instruction consisting of five Occupational Completion Points. OCPs provide a student with early completion training options linked to employment opportunities established by the Florida Department of Education based on the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system and accepted industry titles.
