Entered at the 4th place. Graduated with ***Very Good*** mark. A major task was the compilation of the ZUGBETRIEB train simulation software as a part of the thesis ***Modern locomotion***. This is an accurate simulation of train dynamic behaviour when running on a specific line, The program calculates timetables and outputs performance graphs depicting any desired operational parameter, including power/energy demands. The software was initially developed in Quick Basic and was later upgraded to Visual Basic in order to enhance functionality, usability and versatility.
