## 16 Free eBooks On Modeling And Simulation!

The use of modeling and simulation (M&S) is well recognized in the field of engineering and the discipline has already helped many groups like NASA, nuclear developers and engineering firms to reduce costs, increase the quality of products and systems, and document and archive lessons learned. This process of getting information about how something will behave without actually testing it in real life has a wide spectrum of career growth and job opportunities.

So if you are willing to learn the discipline, here are 16 free ebooks!
