Description
We will use SimCityTM - an entertainment simulation game - in our ENMA 771/871 Complex Systems Risk and Vulnerability Management course to enhance the students' learning experience. The subject matter of this course concerns large-scale infrastructure systems like energy generation and distribution or public transportation systems. For financial, pragmatic and safety reasons, it is difficult to offer students an opportunity to engage the topic in a practical way. Serious gaming offers us the possibility to interact with the material in a realistic and engaging way.
