Course Description

Gain an understanding of advance engineering principles that are needed to analyze and engineer complex systems. Learn to use a conceptual design tool to model, explore and understand the complex system problem space and discover alternative solutions. Students will learn how to translate system requirements into workable system implementations using conceptual models. Through in-class modeling of a real-world problem, gain an understanding and appreciation for the many benefits of advanced simulation-based engineering.

Prerequisite: EECS X491.81 Foundations of the Systems Engineering Process OR equivalent experience.
