How NPS helped my Navy M&S career: "The Naval Postgraduate School provided the technical, analytical, research and critical thinking skills I required to excel as the Navigation, Seamanship, and Shiphandling Simulation Program Manage at the U.S. Navy's Shiphandling Center of Excellence, the Surface Warfare Officers School. No prgogram other than NPS' Modeling, Virtual Environments and Simulation (MOVES) curriculum provides such a full range of topics, skills, and joint service institutional knowledge required by the Department of Defense Modeling & Simulation practitioner, nor could have prepared me as thoroughly to hit the deckplates running in my current assignment. I am directly involved in influencing and shaping current and future shiphandling simulator training, programs, and system acquisition decisions that benefit our surface forces. The returns on investment of my education and friendships forged in the MOVES program have been substantial. No doubt about it, this degree delivers!"
