The Link Foundation Modeling, Simulation, and Training Program was put in place with the following objectives:

  • To foster advanced level study in modeling, simulation, and training research;
  • To enhance and expand the theoretical and practical knowledge of how to train the operators and users of complex systems and how to simulate the real-world environments in which they function;
  • To enable Ph.D. students the freedom to work on their research full time
  • To disseminate the results of that research through conferences, journals, and other publications.

The Link Foundation also offers fellowships in the areas of energy production and utilization; and in the area of ocean engineering.
