The Research Center for Modeling and Simulation was established at NUST in 2007 to set up modeling and simulation facilities for design and development in various disciplines through education, training and research. Specifically, there was a need for integrating analytical and computational techniques with advances in computer hardware and software.
Facilitated by the enabling environment comprising state of the art constituent laboratories, library and adaptive mechanisms, the faculty and students at RCMS developed a multi-disciplinary approach to research and education, making many notable contributions. The result oriented research by our faculty and students has made significant contributions in the socio economic growth of the country.
Recently, education, training and research activities of RCMS have been divided into two main streams or departments, namely: Computational Science; and Computational Engineering. These departments have been further divided into divisions to keep the activities focused, better managed as well as synergized. Computational Science comprises Computer Science, Bio-informatics, and Computational & Applied Mathematics. Similarly, Computational Engineering division is divided into Engineering Sciences, Systems Engineering and Operations Research.
At RCMS, students are encouraged and facilitated to involve themselves in specialized topics with faculty members who are on the forefront of innovation in their fields and the practitioners who bring real-world, real-time experience to the classroom.
