The Games, Education, Modeling and Simulation (GEMS) Institute is a nonprofit, multi-disciplinary games, entertainment modeling and simulation collaborative research and education outreach managed through and collocated with the TSYS School of Computer Science at Columbus State University (CSU) in Columbus, Georgia. Its primary focus is applied research for the defense industry and commercial applications involving modeling, simulation, games and entertainment technologies. Strong collaborative relationships exist between the GEMS Institute and the Army's Maneuver Battle Lab and the Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCOE) at Fort Benning, Georgia. A major area of interest for the GEMS Institute is providing applied research in these dynamic and rapidly growing technologies for the MCOE and the many Army research agencies who are tenants at Fort Benning.
The mission is fivefold:
The new GEMS Institute is an idea whose time has come. It represents an economic and academic driver for the entire community, an engine that benefits the University, the defense community, Fort Benning, and residents throughout the Valley Region.
The GEMS Institute strives to to become a national leader in serious games, modeling and simulation applied research in support of the defense and entertainment industries.
