This course is in all assigned curricula part of the STEOP.
This course is in at least 1 assigned curriculum part of the STEOP.

2023S, SE, 2.0h, 3.0EC, to be held in blocked form


  • Semester hours: 2.0
  • Credits: 3.0
  • Type: SE Seminar
  • Format: Hybrid

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to:

  • Define terms and reflect mathematical relationships in the area of modelling in system simulation.
  • Use methods and concepts of modelling and being able to adapt them in different situations.
  • Reproduce mathematical sentences that are related to the theory of modelling.
  • Reproduce numerical methods and procedures of system simulation and adapt them to given situations.

Subject of course

  • Behavioural and state space models
  • ODE models
  • Numerical methods for system simulation
  • Differential algebraic model approaches
  • Alternative modelling approaches

Teaching methods

In consultation, students are assigned a topic and work on it. The focus is on the theoretical development of the facts of modelling and simulation, a small simulation example is also provided for illustration. The results of the theoretical development and the simulation studies are summarized in a seminar paper and presented at the end to a selected audience.

Mode of examination


Additional information

The preliminary meeting will be offered online, meeting for discussion and supervision can be done online as well as in person (by arrangement), which also applies to the presentation of the papers. More detailed information is available in the TUWEL course of this course.
