They will acquire basic knowledge and discuss selected topics about agent-based modelling, which includes asepcts like validation or available simulation software. Then, they will apply these newly acquired skills in order to develop their own agent-based model and perform their own simulation experiments on a research topic of their choice. In order to enhance their competence to develop and critically assess agent-based simulation research, students will additionally read and review published articles on agent-based modelling to address a current research question.
