Students must have access to MATLAB/Simulink software. The student version is acceptable.


The purpose of this unit is to provide students with an understanding of modelling and simulation techniques and their application to the analysis of marine engineering systems. Students are introduced to numerical methods, control systems, first and second order systems, and the associated modelling strategies. This unit is structured around the application software MATLAB/Simulink which students will use to create programs that simulate marine systems such as pump-pipe networks, heating ventilating and air conditioning, and propulsion systems.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.

Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.

TNE Program units special approval requirements.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (see withdrawal dates explained for more information).
