Simulation Software for Blended Learning in Computer Science

Simulation Software modeling solves real-world problems safely and efficiently. It provides an important method of analysis which is easily verified, communicated, and understood. Across industries and disciplines, simulation modeling provides valuable solutions by giving clear insights into complex systems.

You can teach a student a lesson for a day, but if you teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue to learn for as long as he lives.
A curious mind cannot be satisfied. It wants to see, feel and learn every day. What better place for a curious learner than the classroom? Teachers who encourage curiosity in their students will know they have made an impact that will last a lifetime.

In the field of engineering education, we often talk about the lack of practical oriented equipment. Overcoming this limitation is not possible, it requires a lot of money and time. Most devices cannot be assigned per student. In this case simulation software or simulator can be effective solution. Generally PC based simulators are used but nowadays it is possible to use mobile based Android simulators. Web-based simulators can be used on both PC and mobile platforms.

Major Platfrom and Providers


zSpace is a technology firm based in San Jose, California that combines elements of virtual and augmented reality in a computer. zSpace mostly provides AR/VR technology to the education market. It allows teachers and learners to interact with simulated objects in virtual environments. Wikipedia



PhET Interactive Simulations, a project at the University of Colorado Boulder, is a non-profit open educational resource project that creates and hosts explorable explanations. It was founded in 2002 by Nobel Laureate Carl Wieman. PhET began with Wieman’s vision to improve the way science is taught and learned. Wikipedia



Scilab is a free and open-source, cross-platform numerical computational package and a high-level, numerically oriented programming language. Wikipedia



Which is a proprietary multi-paradigm programming language and numeric computing environment developed by MathWorks. It allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages. Wikipedia



Simulation software is the creation of a digital twin using historical data and vetted against your system’s actual results.

Chemistry Simulation


Electric and Electronic circuit simulation uses mathematical models to replicate the behavior of an actual electronic device or circuit. Simulation software allows for modeling of circuit operation and is an invaluable analysis tool.

Computer OS

Computer Networking

Automation and PLC

PLC simulators are used for simulating PLC operation on a personal computer or on a mobile phone. Ladder logic program can be simulated with the help of a PLC simulator. A physical PLC is not required to test the ladder logic program. PLC simulator allows programmer to force input and output signal and test the ladder logic diagrams. PLC programmer can test and debug the program before installation into its operating environment.
