Certificate Rotor and Wake Aerodynamics

Rotor and Wake Aerodynamics are key to many applications such as helicopter and propeller rotors in transport and wind turbines for electricity generation. But rotors have a tendency to generate three-dimensional unsteady aerodynamic phenomena that are complex both to understand and to model.

Certificate Non-linear Modeling

Non-linear Modeling course builds on the first course linear modelling and takes one step further. This course delivers the skill set in non-linear structural modeling & analysis in the framework of the finite element method that is required to solve problems from the engineering practice. The weekly lectures and practicals impart both, practical experience with the modeling pipeline of commercial FE software and the theory fundamentals for the numerical approximation of non-linear engineering phenomena.

About

Find out more information about this Discipline

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.
