Learning Outcomes

Knowledge Broadening
The students know about most of the application possibilities and the limits for simulation models.
Knowledge Deepening
They have a broad, detailed and critical knowledge about the application of models in a special system (soils, agrarian plant production, green house production)
Instrumental Skills and Competences
The students possess skills and special knowledge for the application of simulation models. They apply the programmes to predict impacts of intrusions into the ecosystem.
Communicative Skills and Competences
The students possess skills and special knowledge for the application of simulation models. They apply the programmes to predict impacts of intrusions into the ecosystem.
