Launch of MS in Systems Engineering and Revamped Computational Science and Engineering at RCMS
On 10 September 2013, Research Centre for Modeling & Simulation (RCMS), NUST launched Pakistan’s first ever MS in Systems Engineering and revamped MS Computational Science & Engineering programs. Representatives from industry, academia and military attended the ceremony. The ceremony started with the recitation of Holy Quran. Principal RCMS Dr Ahmad Ejaz Nadeem welcomed the distinguished guests and new students at NUST. He conveyed that RCMS since inception in 2007, has been committed to wholesome education and meaningful inter-disciplinary research in engineering and sciences in a variety of fields. While addressing the audience, he stated that the curriculum of Systems Engineering is based on the recommendations of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), whereas, the curriculum of Computational Science and Engineering is based on the recommendations of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). He spoke about the expectations from fresh graduates and briefly highlighted about achievements of RCMS.
Subsequently, Assistant Professor Dr Adnan Maqsood briefed the audience about the program structure and curriculum of both, MS in Systems Engineering and MS in Computational Science and Engineering.
Chief guest Pro Rector (Academics) Dr Asif Raza formally launched the program of MS in Systems Engineering. He appreciated the contributions in terms of scholarly articles from RCMS in this short time since its inception. He urged the students to think innovatively and out of the box. He emphasized that modeling and simulation enables the researchers to translate their creative thinking into tangible products with minimal time, reduced project & development costs, detailed testing and validation, lesser chances of error and reducing the stakes. The event was concluded with a group photo of new students with the chief guest and light refreshments.
