Training Using Professional Simulators in Engineering Education: A Solution and a Case Study
Continuing previous researches on engineering education, this paper presents how to build and use a professional training simulator. The training simulator is specified and then, it is implemented as a set consisting of a technical simulator, basic concepts and techniques and a basis for professional regulation documents. An example of usage shows that, through the construction of the training simulator, the individual performance of student work increases significantly, professional skills are acquired in an integrated way and cooperation between students becomes a permanent practice. In conclusion, recommendations are being made to extend professional simulators to a larger coverage of professional skills. This extension will be at the expense of accumulation of theoretical knowledge with a potential and probable future application.
