Overview

Modelling and simulation make a particular part of the world easier to define, visualize and understand. Both require the identification of relevant aspects of a situation in the real world and then the use of different types of models for different objectives and the definition of the most suitable model parameters.

This course teaches you to simulate models for a wide range of applications using MATLAB – a high-level programming language and an environment for numerical computation and visualization.

The course is divided into two sections. The first part teaches the basics and is mandatory for all participants. Within the second part of the course you have the opportunity to choose from a catalogue of applications to work on selected examples.

What will I learn?
  • Students are acquainted with the concepts of modelling and simulation from an interdisciplinary point of view.
  • Students are able to implement and simulate models using MATLAB/Simulink.
  • Depending on the selected applications in part B of the course students acquire further knowledge of control engineering, image processing, machine learning, business case modelling, knowledge management and simulation of a water treatment plant
  • Enthusiastic students with only rudimentary programming knowledge acquire an understanding of the basic MATLAB programming
What do I have to know?

Mathematics and Physics knowledge of secondary level education and programming knowledge are recommended.

MATLAB is commercial software. As a result of support from MathWorks, students will be granted a downloadable license to MATLAB and Simulink for the duration of the course.

Workload

Approx. 8 hours per week.

The final chapter will be uploaded on June 24th. The course ends on July 18th.

Do I get a certificate?

Students participating in this course can earn the official Statement of Participation.

Requirements for receiving the Statement of Participation are to watch 60% of the lecture videos as well as complete 60% of the quizzes.

Modelling and Simulation using MATLAB®

My thanks and gratitude to Prof. Dr.-Ing. Georg Fries and Staff for this outstanding, world-class and very valuable course presentation.

I truly enjoyed participating in this very thoughtfully and brilliantly structured effort. The topics were very well-designed, well-chosen and well-presented. The Staff was especially adept, responsive and interactive.

I have taken many online courses and have many years of academic experience both as a student and professor. This course is among the finest available anywhere, on or off campus.

Please join with me in recognizing and applauding Prof. Dr.-Ing. Georg Fries and Staff. They are a jewel in the crown of Hochschule RheinMain University of Applied Sciences, to iVersity and to the academic community.

Thank you!

Nuno completed this course, spending 8 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Is a multidisciplinary course that needs some engineering background and time to complete tasks, but is a good starting point to modeling and simulation.
