Short Courses in Engineering & Technology

Engineering and technology is based on the application of existing technology within a field of engineering through the use of basic engineering principles and technical skills. As such, bachelor and master programmes in engineering and technology focus primarily on the applied aspects of science to equip graduates with practical technical skills in product improvement, manufacturing, construction or engineering operational functions.

Universities provide a wide offer of Masters of Science (M.Sc.) in engineering and technology that keeps on growing and resulting in extensive specialisations and technological development. Studying engineering equips students with practical skills to acquire and apply scientific, mathematical, economic, social and practical knowledge to design and build structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes that safely serve as solutions to the needs of society. Through hands-on training, students are encouraged to come up with creative applications of scientific principles.

Careers in engineering and technology are as diverse as the subject they specialise in. Graduates can find work as software engineers, computer programmers, computer system analysts, electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, nuclear engineers, civil engineers, industrial designers, aerospace engineers, and more.

Suggested Short Courses Programmes

Linear Modeling (including FEM) Certificate Linear Modeling (including FEM)
  • Sep 2016
  • EEA € 600 per module
  • International € 600 per module
  • 2 months

This course delivers the skillset in linear or structural modeling that is required to solve structural problems from which you can develop finite element (FE) models for practical applications. It also teaches how results can be correctly interpreted. The course uses an open source FE package in a series of weekly practical sessions where models are constructed for sample problems and results are validated against simplified analytical models or open literature.

Aeroelasticity Certificate Aeroelasticity
  • Feb 2017
  • EEA € 600 per module
  • International € 600 per module
  • 3 months

Aeroelasticity is the interaction between structural dynamics and unsteady aerodynamic flow over the structure. It is an important area of study for two main reasons. First the interaction can lead to static or dynamic instabilities which can result in failure of the structure. Secondly the loads calculated using aeroelastic simulations are significantly different for flexible structures compared to decoupled structural and aerodynamic simulations.
