The objective of current study is to investigate the role and advancement of engineering modelling and numerical simulation in research and development activities in the field of engineering and science. Modelling and simulation involve the use of computer-based programs to solve mathematical formulations of physical phenomena or engineering processes. The trend of engineering modelling in providing prediction of engineering performance and scientific analysis has been studied. This trend is to complement the conventional way of experimentation and physical analysis. The capability of engineering modelling and simulation in broad areas of engineering and science is assessed. In this study some example are provided and analysed. Current study looks into the role of investment in engineering modelling and the recognition of the role of modelling and simulation in international competitiveness and research stimulus. Some areas of engineering and science have been identified as strategic, hence special attention was paid to explore and analyse these area in the context of engineering research.
