Dakota Prairie Model and Simulation Lab
The Dakota Prairie Modeling and Simulation Lab (DPMSL) at South Dakota State University (SDSU) will connect industry and academic research with modeling and simulation expertise to enhance the product and system design process, support engineering research, and enrich education. Our goals are to: 1) advance South Dakota industries by modeling and simulating their current and future design problems; 2) strengthen research and education across the state; and 3) engage undergraduate and graduate students in engineering research.
