2018S, VU, 2.0h, 3.0EC, to be held in blocked form


  • Semester hours: 2.0
  • Credits: 3.0
  • Type: VU Lecture and Exercise

Aim of course

Students who have successfully passed this course have a profound understanding of the taught advanced topics of model engineering. Furthermore, they acquired the skill to apply selected model engineering technologies.

Subject of course

The course consists of lectures and practical labs.

The lectures are blocked and deal with advanced topics of model engineering, including the following:

  • Model execution
  • Model versioning
  • Model-based systems engineering
  • Model engineering in selected domains such as production system, IoT, etc.
  • Model reasoning
  • Model-driven language modernization

The labs will be carried out by the students in groups. Each group will implement a modeling tool providing capabilities related to one of the topics covered in the lecture part. Therefore, they will apply selected model engineering technologies. The students will document their results in a project report comprising around 15 pages. Furthermore, in a closing workshop, the students will present and discuss their results. The schedule of the lab part will be announced at the preliminary discussion.

This course is accompanied by the seminar 188.953 Advanced Model Engineering (2 SE). We recommend to take both courses together in the same semester.

Additional information


Attendance at the preliminary discussion, lectures, and workshop is mandatory.
