  • The UTC SimCenter: National Center for Computational Engineering is one of America's primary assets for solving engineering problems through computational simulation, according to IBM, which recently donated $400,000 in computer hardware and funding. The SimCenter offers both Masters and PhD level degrees in computational engineering -- making it one of few schools to offer these cutting-edge degrees. The SimCenter has also completed applied research on problems ranging from improving the aerodynamics of semi-tractor trailer trucks utilizing simulations to computational electromagnetics.
