Increasing number of higher education institutions moves towards innovating teaching methods. These initiatives are often orientated towards enhancing student learning experience. Nevertheless, many engineering courses providers face an ongoing struggle when designing student tasks. Striking the right balance between theoretical knowledge and real-life practical problems is often difficult to attain.
It is in the interest of educators to arrange teaching methods and assessments which reflect aspects of the real world in an interactive fashion. Simulations in engineering education bring broad-spectrum benefits.
We can organize a special PSC Task Phase for your classroom. The phase is always an integral part of the official PSC competition.
Would you like your students to stand out from the crowd? We can add a unique Campaign tag to a phase dedicated to your students. It will display under the Campaign column on the highscore table.
Let us know in advance when would you like the phase to happen and we’ll arrange for it.
Why not assign one of our PSC Phases as homework?
Students can train process simulation in their own time during a semester break or weekend. Moreover, every student will be able to stay in the game and compete internationally for official PSC Awards!

Who incorporated PSC into the curriculum?
University of New Hampshire, USA
“We incorporated PSC into the curriculum to bridge the gap between academia and real engineering world. Thanks to the grading tool, we effortlessly assess more than 80 students every year.” Ph.D. Student, Ewelina Brodawka, AGH University of Science and Technology, Poland
We know how cumbersome it can be to assess large student groups. To make it easier, we developed a unique grading tool for PSC tasks. The free feature enables teachers to:
The grading tool is only visible and accessible to teachers. Interested? Please contact us quoting Teaching Tool for free access link.
1. Define the top and bottom result for your student list/group.
2. Adjust results to your own grading system.
We can arrange a special PSC Task Phase for your university or organization which would like to run a student contest in real time.
Process Simulation Cup is right for you if you’re looking for an interactive student challenge with the maximum reach and the minimum organizational effort.
