Course Description

This course covers modeling and simulation principles as applied to engineering systems. Students learn to use simulation to model complex engineering systems. Models will be developed for both continuous and discrete systems. Examples include modeling and analysis of manufacturing systems, computer-communication networks, and logistic systems.

Learning Outcomes

  • Apply modeling and simulation to solve engineering problems.
  • Evaluate simulation models.
  • Synthesize queuing theory and its application to modeling and simulation.
