Transverse momentum dependent (TMD) distributions are a novel QCD tool that allow the mapping of the motion of quarks and gluons in nuclear matter. The Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) will allow for a high-precision study of TMDs at the scale of sea quarks and gluons. In my presentation, I will discuss the requirements on theory as well as on accelerator, detector, and computer technology for the TMD program at the EIC with a focus on recent progress on Monte Carlo Event Generators for TMDs.
