Course Description

Course Description

This course covers the dynamics of different models and emphasizes on the tools and methods needed to apply systems thinking and simulation in complex real-world settings. The course uses systems dynamics and simulation models to depict solutions for real world problem in business and environment.

Course Objectives:

The objectives of the course are too,

  • Introduce students to the methods of formulating qualitative and quantitative models using the available data
  • Teach students the different models that are using in solving problems
  • Teach students how they can use mathematics models to formulate and solve problem

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the course, students should be able to:

  • Define Simulation, Systems Dynamic and a model and how they relate
  • Explain the different types of models used in solving world problems
  • Identify and formulate a problem, and devise a mathematical solution or simulation model out of it.
