  • Abstract

Engineering students often consider complex real-world systems with complex structures and uncertainties. The engineering practices in traditional education systems could only offer limited opportunities for students to understand the concrete properties of the real-world systems, limiting the performance of students. In this action research, simulation-based education (SE) is considered to improve the performance of the students in engineering practices. We introduce virtual simulation platform to help students get familiar with the considered systems; because students could practice with the systems with unlimited trials, they could get sufficient practices in the considered systems and improve their performances when dealing with real-world systems. Feedbacks are collected from questionnaires after the module is completed and the results demonstrate that the introduction of virtual simulation platform helps students get more familiar with the real-world systems and improve their performance compared to previous records.
