We report on our recent experiences with a project-based simulation course in the third year of the Computer Science curriculum at the University of Rostock. Students developed and implemented simulation models of queuing systems in the campus canteen or traffic flow at an intersection close to the campus. We pre-structured the projects into milestones and acquired real-world data for model input or validation. Both of these aspects were evaluated positively by the participants. We also report on experiences with managing and grading students in a collaborative group project.
