Abstract: The pivotal idea central to engineering education is the cultivation of a motivation-based environment. There is little doubt that students learn better, particularly with regard to 'deep learning' if they are allowed to focus on areas of a curriculum in which they are strongly motivated. On the other hand, engineering education can also be regarded as an integrated study for students, which foster the cultivation of basic skills and the talent to follow well-defined patterns of procedures in order to solve problems. This paper presents the design and implementation of an educational simulation which mimics a microworld of business activities. The objective of such educational simulation is to present an integrated environment for students to undergo a motivation-based learning experience based on an integrated study methodology. The design and implementation of the educational simulation is intended to motivate students to accept personal responsibility for behavior in a simulated environment by recognizing and taking pride with a sense of self achievement.
