PG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
This is an advanced unit, and students need to be competent in Excel (or in handling mathematical equations) and need familiarity with forestry (or ecological) concepts such as those convened in the pre-requisite units or similar experience.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
understand the role of simulation modelling in forest management and environmental planning
identify forest and environmental issues that simulation modelling can help to resolve
design and implement a suitable modelling approach for a specified environmental context
gather and synthesise relevant information and calibrate a model for a practical application
complete simulations, document outcomes, and present & discuss findings
identify model limitations and define research needed to strengthen model.
