Certificate in Biological Systems Modeling
The ABE graduate studies program now offers an opportunity for students to earn a certificate in biological systems modeling. Engineering and Science graduate students and professionals will be trained to model a wide range of biological and environmental systems. A tiered course structure introduces students to conceptual modeling, model development and design with high-level programing languages, and an overview of the model application to simulation of biological systems. All applicants to approved certificate programs on campus must use the centralized application located on the Office of Admissions’ website at http://www.admissions.ufl.edu/start.html.
IMPORTANT: NO MORE THAN 50% OF CERTIFICATE COURSEWORK CAN BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION FOR THE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM!
PLEASE NOTIFY ROBIN SNYDER AFTER YOU COMPLETE THE APPLICATION SO SHE CAN PROCESS YOUR ADMISSION! email@example.com
A 3-tier sequence of courses was devised based on current catalog of courses with emphasis on simulation/modeling. The 3-tier sequence consists of two required courses followed by electives that can be selected according to the student's area of focus or interest. The first two courses introduce students to conceptual modeling, model development and design with high-level languages and an overview of the application of these tools to simulation of agricultural and biological systems. After completion of the first two courses, the student can select 2 additional specialized courses (electives) selected according to the student's area of focus or interest across different disciplines (see below).
- Tier 1
ABE5643c- Biological Systems Modeling
- Tier 2
ABE5646- Agricultural and Biological Systems Simulation
- Tier 3
