Professional perspective

Students gain wide knowledge of model building and simulation. The ability to construct a model (abstract formulation of a problem) and interpret the results (simulation or experiment) are fundamental and require a broad basic technical education. With this knowledge graduates are well positioned to continue their education with a PhD, or to switch to industry or business. People who know how to perform computer simulations are sought by the research departments of industries where simulations are used in situations for which real experiments would be too dangerous or expensive. In recent years computer simulations have also taken on a prominent role in the finance and banking sectors (e.g. risk analysis).
