Project-based learning can be an excellent experience for students, but it is not always feasible to arrange true field experiences. The Utility Company (TUC) simulation was designed as an alternative project experience simulating a real-world consulting project. Students explore a fictional Utility company by requesting and viewing video 'interviews', reading text documents and analyzing spreadsheets of realistic data. The simulation may exceed a real-world project in the way it supports constant informative feedback from the instructor and close coordination between classroom and field activities.
