- STEM Course
This course introduces a broad range of non-trivial techniques and approaches for modelling and simulation of dynamic engineering systems. Techniques include discrete event models; first- and second-order system models; time, frequency and state space relations; and feedback systems. These concepts are introduced through the modelling of electrical systems, mechanical systems, energy systems, control systems, etc. Modelling software such as ExtendSim, MATLAB or Simulink will be key tools in this course.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Implement a wide range of deterministic and probabilistic system models
- Demonstrate the relationship between different types of system models
- Illustrate simple properties of dynamic systems in both time and frequency domains
- Implement system models in a simulation environment
- Evaluate the appropriate modelling paradigm(s) to describe the dynamic behaviour of real engineering systems
Work Integrated Learning
This course provides you with the opportunity to deeply engage with the course content, drive your leaning, build skills and confidence,
and perform the learned tasks more effectively.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
120 hours over the semester including all class workshops, self-directed learning, team-based project-work and individual work.
