Project Detail


OPTIMUS - Earth Science Engineering Grant

Partner(s): Upmanu Lall - School of Engineering and Applied Science

The Open Platform for Teaching Integrated Modeling and Urban Simulation (OPTIMUS) project was a prototype of a spatial modeling application that allowed engineering students to design and manipulate models of environmental engineering problems such as the relationship between automobile traffic congestion and pollution. The prototype was a central feature of a re-designed undergraduate curriculum that exposed students to the power and challenges of modeling early in their undergraduate experience. The code is now archived on GitHub.
