IDCE 367 - Quantitative Environmental Modeling

Type of Course: Lecture, Discussion
Investigates the quantitative and qualitative applications of mathematical computer simulation models to guide policy in human/environment systems. Students learn to think with a systems perspective while translating conceptual models to mathematical models to computer models in a manner that considers calibration, validation, extrapolation, feedbacks, and sensitivity analysis. Includes lab sessions in the computer room and lectures/discussion in the classroom. Culminates in written and verbal presentations of student projects. Students will gain technical proficiency in Excel and the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming language.
