Simulation Technology

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Simulation Technology
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Electrical Engineering, Master, ASPO 01.10.2005
Module code: E904
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
1V+1P (2 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 9
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Oral examination

Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

E904 (P211-0260) Electrical Engineering, Master, ASPO 01.10.2005 , semester 9, mandatory course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
30 class hours (= 22.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 90 hours (equivalent to 3 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 67.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:

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.
