Short Courses in Engineering & Technology


Find out more information about 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.

Short Online Course Smart Structures

This course is for innovative professionals who are mainly active in the aerospace industry. Also wind energy and automotive professionals can benefit from the course. Learn how smart structures impact the technological advancements of the future.

Certificate Advanced Dynamics

Rather like solving a tough mystery, this course is a "Howdunit" - tracking down and applying the equations of motion for complex dynamic systems. The Advanced Dynamics course offered by the Delft University of Technology presents mechanics in a matrix so that you can derive systematically in a short time frame the equations of motion of complex systems.

Certificate Critical Infrastructure Resilience

This Critical Infrastructure Resilience course from Venice International University explains how critical infrastructure works and fails; its cascading impact from local to global, and the strategies to use to build resilience against e.g. extreme events and climate change.
