In this course, we provide fundamental concepts and simulation method based on Systems Dynamics necessary to analyze behaviour of global-wide huge complicated systems related to environment and energy.
The objective is to let students learn skills of abstraction which is necessary to analyze Engineering Systems.
Students will be able to have knowledge and skills of formulating problems and causality hidden behind, and skills of Modeling and Simulation based on Systems Dynamics that are necessary to analyze Engineering Systems.
Optimization problem, Combinatorial Optimization,Game Theory, Systems Dynamics,Causal Loop Diagram, Stock and Flow
|Intercultural skills||Communication skills||Specialist skills||Critical thinking skills||Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
In Systems Dynamics part, team-based learning with four students is adopted for project, report generation and presentation.

This course is not open for undergraduate students.
It is better to take Mathematical Engineering, Introduction to Information Systems, Noncooperative Game Theory, Coopoerative Game Theory.
It is necessary to able to formulate problems and causality hidden behind, and to have skills of Modeling and Simulation based on Systems Dynamics to nalyze Engineering Systems that are wicked, ill-structured huge complicated systems..
