Our simulation course is designed for breadth in application domains, modeling techniques and use of toolkits. Students must change context rapidly, learn multiple modeling languages and gain proficiency in multiple tools. To accomplish this, the course has evolved from a lecture and homework format to a directed collaborative exercise format and the focus has shifted from implementation towards modeling. The new format allows students to learn more rapidly by sharing knowledge and has opened the course to a wider audience.
The tutorial will use exercises from the course to illustrate what we expect students to learn and how they work collaboratively towards that objective.
