Summary : Model Based Design

Pre-course survey:

The Model-Based Design course’s 46 pre-survey responses showed a wide range of knowledge about the subject, primarily basic to moderate, with a few reporting complete unfamiliarity or advanced competency. Model-based design training was new to most of these students, allowing for significant growth. Students took the course to acquire theoretical knowledge and practical expertise in model-based design applications to advance their professions. Despite some early discomfort with model-based design technologies and software tools, mastery was expected to open up options for specialization and innovation in their future careers. Their enthusiasm for a variety of domain subjects was tempered the anticipated difficulties in comprehending technical details and applying theoretical models.

Post-course survey:

43 students reported improvement after the training. Many students reported a rise in model-based design proficiency. Due to its in-depth insights and hands-on experience, the training met and exceeded expectations. For students interested in design and development careers, simulation, system modeling, and design validation were among the most valuable talents. The confidence of students to apply model-based design principles in real life increased. While technical challenges persisted, they were less frightening after the course, suggesting that teaching methods, course materials, and instructor support reduced them. The course was well-received for teaching model-based design. Based on students’ enhanced preparation and satisfaction, the course was likely to be recommended. According to the post-survey, students had improved in competence and confidence, proving that the course was effective in teaching model-based design principles.
