10 Recruiting Activities (1/3)
We need to do our part but, We’re not marketing professionals nor have significant budget. Must limit resources to known quantities yielding targeted contacts. Continue our efforts in local and national venues. Step up efforts in advertising our On-Line ME in M&S Leverage University’s interest in promoting niche programs for gaining recognition for the potentially new college of continuing education.

11 Recruiting Activities (2/3)
Targeted Nationwide ing Campaigns Contact Lists for High School Students Registering an Interest in Simulation Promotion with Local High Schools Career Days Class Visitations and Demonstrations Summer Camps (Computer Games, Robotics) Promotion with Local Community Colleges Support of AS Degree Programs Regular Visits to Recruiting/Transfer Sessions Promotion within ODU Host Engineering Early Advantage Program (EEAP) Teach 20+ Sections of ENGN 110 Each Year Participate in University/College/Department Recruiting Activities Lab demonstrations at Engineering Open House, First Fridays, etc. Conference Activities Booth participation at MODSIM World and I/ITSEC Participate with STEM Activities Flyer Distribution at Several Major M&S Conferences

12 Recruitment Activities (3/3)
Ocean Lakes HS Math and Science Academy Program Lecture (Dec. 3) I/ITSEC STEM Pavilion – Orlando (Dec. 2-5) Society of Women Engineers (SWE) (Oct ) Greenbrier Intermediate STEM Night (Oct. 17) Governor’s STEM Academy at Grassfield High School (Oct. 15) Science Saturday at the Carrollton Library (Oct. 12) Peninsula Higher Education Center Open House (Oct. 3) Heritage High School Governor's STEM Academy Advisory Board (Sept. 26)

13 MSVE Advisory Board Meeting
Upcoming Milestones MSVE Advisory Board Meeting Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2PM ODU M&S Capstone Conference ( April 17, 2014 Cyber Security theme -- Need to identify Speaker Student Chairperson -- John Shull Graduate Program Assessment Undergraduate Program ABET Assessment

14 Donor Activities Scholarships Cyber Security Annual Capital Campaign
MODSIM World Conference Community College -- $1,250 BS/MS -- $3,500 VMASC Industry Association MSVE Undergraduate Scholarship 2014 ENGN $5,000 (Awarded to Melissa Periman) VMASC Advisory Board Textbooks for core class(es) Cyber Security Endowment of 100k (20k/year for 5 years) Annual Capital Campaign MSVE Account #241327

15 VMASC IA Scholarship Recipient -- Melissa Periman
The Gene Newman Scholarship for a EFD Student Choosing M&SE Major Recipient -- Melissa Periman I saw all the wonderful and exciting things that modeling and simulation can do and I instantly fell in love. MSVE is practical and applicable to common life problems. This is one of the reasons I decided to major in it. It can be applied to every form of engineering as well as non-engineering fields. It allows us to see what would happen if we were to create something a certain way, apply stress to one area, or any number of other countless scenarios. I see MSVE as the new up-and-coming field of engineering. It is highly regarded already and is a necessity in many areas. I chose MSVE not only for its practicality but also because I find it exciting. I have never felt as much passion for something … Other 2 applicants just as strong Jarrod Cartwright Michelle Graham Applicants from EEAP and ENGN 110 Both taught this summer by Dr. Jim Leathrum.

16 Textbook Donation Program
VMASC IA Other Support Textbook Donation Program Simulation with Arena Students notified Excellent publicity for VMASC IA and our department. M&S Reference Materials Less visibility to undergraduate students More visibility to graduate students Target subscriptions not available in Perry Library

17 Fund additional undergraduate applicants
VMASC IA Relationship Fund additional undergraduate applicants Establish sustainable scholarships Combine annual scholarship with annual endowment support Establish student research activity / lab accessible to all VMASC IA members Internships and jobs then feedback on our graduates Acknowledge / comment upon of our Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

20 M&S Workforce Development
Partners in Providing World-Class M&S Education for Hampton Roads and the Commonwealth Commonwealth Of Virginia Doctoral Degrees ODU Scientist Research, Development Old Dominion University Master’s Degrees ODU Virginia Community Colleges Engineer Design, Analysis Bachelor’s Degree ODU Public School Systems Technologist Implementation, Operations By 2010, M&S will be nearly a $1B enterprise in Hampton Roads. A primary driver of this enterprise is the US Joint Forces Command and the many contractors needed to support their training and experimentation activities. Also important are the presence of two federal laboratories, NASA Langley Research Center and Jefferson Labs, and the Commonwealth’s largest private employer, Northrop Grumman Newport News Shipbuilding, all major users of M&S technology. Development of the highly skilled workforce required to support this M&S enterprise is a primary concern for the Commonwealth and its educational institutions. Required is a complete educational path beginning at the high school level and extending through the graduate level. Old Dominion University is committed to contributing to the M&S Educational Pathway at the BS, MS, and PhD levels. Associate of Science Degree TCC; TNCC Technician Maintenance, Support High School Diploma Public School Systems

21 M&S Body of Knowledge Applications Domains
Related Disciplines - computer science and engineering, mathematics and statistics, human factors psychology, project management, systems engineering, … Modeling Simulation Analysis Visualization Applications Experimentation Engineering Science Analysis Experience Education Training Gaming Domains M&S Fundamentals Medicine & Health Care Transportation Military Homeland Security Training Decision Support Logistics M&S Methodologies - modeling methods, distributed simulation, interoperability and composability, multi-resolution and multi-scale simulation, advanced statistical techniques, verification & validation, … Focus on learning how to use various system modeling paradigms and strategies for state model updates. Understanding and decision-making is enhanced through proper visualization and analysis of system performance and output.

22 M&SE Advantage Broad Approach to Engineering
Applicable to all engineering and science disciplines Engineering is about problem-solving and M&S engineering is about finding and understanding a range of solutions to provide the basis to choose. High Demand for M&SE Professionals M&S jobs are available in many US and international locations Only ODU offers a BS degree in M&SE Starting Point for Other Professional Careers Strong curriculum stressing development of problem solving skills Excellent preparation for careers in medicine, law, business, and education Excellent Preparation for Innovation Engineering provides skills required to design new solutions to societal problems M&SE provides the tools required for innovation – modeling, simulation, visualization, analysis, communication across technical boundaries
