Learning outcomes:
The use of simulation tools enables solutions to engineering problems to be checked and verified. This module introduces students to the different simulation tools available and to their use in building models, performing simulations and evaluating results. Students will be required to select and apply these tools to specific problems. Students will thus gain an appreciation of the applicability, complexity and benefits of such systems. They will be able to accurately assess the time and effort needed to set up simulation models and to interpret simulation results. Students will acquire practice in designing and practically implementing simulation projects.
