Course Catalog Description: Fundamentals and techniques for designing and using simulation, modeling, and optimization algorithms with applications in system performance modeling, business infrastructure modeling, and distributed and parallel computing. An introduction to advanced complex systems models. (Same as IT 351)
Content: Students will be exposed to the details of modeling and simulation technologies. They will cover the following:
In addition to the specific topics listed above, current developments and student or instructor interests may drive the selection of other topics to be covered in the course.
Assignments: Assignments will reinforce lecture concepts and demonstrate application of programming and critical thinking skills. Collaboration is encouraged, but you must give credit where credit is due. All assignments must be done independently and written (typed) in your own words.

Examinations: There will three examinations.
Projects: All files are subject to inspection by the instructor. Projects are to be submitted electronically. Submission will be to email@example.com; the subject must be your last name followed by the project subject (e.g. "Holten- Project 1").
All programming projects for this class should be written using an easily readable and well-organized coding style.
Plagiarism Policy: Students are encouraged to discuss homeworks and projects with others. Ideas from outside sources should be properly credited to their sources. However, everything that is turned in for each assignment and/or miniproject must be your own work. In particular, it is not acceptable to: Copy in part or in totality another person's assignment and submit it as your own work; Get someone else to do all or a part of the work for you; Submit the work of others as your own work. When the work of others is included in your work the sources should be adequately cited for easy reference, otherwise these acts are plagiarism and will not be tolerated in this course.
Attendance Policy: Students are encouraged to attend all classes. Attendance will count toward participation and therefore grades.
