  • This paper presents a teaching initiative introduced in the Carlos III University of Madrid in which System Dynamics has been applied for teaching project management in the context of Computer Science grade. The initiative was designed in order to achieve two objectives: effectively deliver the lecturing materials relevant to simulation to students and, using the experimental models constructed, emphasize the human aspects of Software Engineering to students, and thus develop their competences as Software Development project managers.
