Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS)
We apply simulation and visualization to solve real world problems and create innovative solutions for industry, education, and the community.
We work with faculty, students, industry, and community to develop innovative solutions for a wide variety of issues. We’ve collaborated with more than 140 external organizations, producing more than $40 million in savings.
CIVS is not only continuing to create a tremendous learning environment and experience for students, but they’re using technology resources to help our industry and others in a way that is both relevant and insightful
