The discipline 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, undergraduate and graduate programmes in the field focus primarily on the applied aspects of science and engineering to equip graduates with practical technical skills in product improvement, manufacturing, construction or engineering operational functions.
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 a solution to the needs of society. Combined with knowledge and processes related to technology, programmes in engineering and technology field provide students tools and skills to manipulate materials so to shape and change the physical world to meet needs. Through hands-on training, students are encouraged to come up with creative applications of scientific principles.
Among the features treated in the summer course are the emergence of healing environments in hospital facilities, solutions that are provided through engineering to limit the risks of biological agents (Legionella, MRSA, vermin, house dust mites), and the impact of lighting and the thermal environment (temperature) of well-being and health of patients, nursing home residents and care professionals.
This course is a hands on course on GIS: two weeks of practicals in the GIS Lab of the faculty of Geosciences.
The goal of the course is to learn about the Haskell community and to get hands-on experience by developing a project using Haskell in a team.
Social research often involves problems that investigate the relationship between individual and society. The general concept is that individuals interact with the social contexts to which they belong, meaning that individual persons are influenced by the social groups or contexts to which they belong, and that the properties of those groups are in turn influenced by the individuals who make up that group.
In this summer school, students receive an introduction to cutting edge computer technology and methods used in mechanical engineering.
The Pembroke-Kings Programme (PKP) offers an exceptional opportunity for outstanding undergraduates to experience Cambridge student life over eight weeks, the length of a regular University term. Living in Pembroke or Kings Colleges, students choose three courses from the forty-five on offer, including courses in the arts, social sciences, business and management, humanities and sciences.
This course allows the student to acquire, in a time-efficient and uncomplicated manner, knowledge in the formation and construction of dynamic models. Many times, the models are performed with minimal current data and very few historical data. The simulation models that the student will design in this course accommodate these analyses, with the construction of realistic hypotheses and elaborate behavior models.
This course is a four day course on structural equation modeling (SEM) using Mplus. The course starts with an introduction of structural equation modeling with some emphasis on the specific way Mplus is used to specify and estimate models and how to deal with error messages. The second day introduces multigroup models, confirmatory factor analysis and how Mplus deals with data that is not distributed normally.
As businesses and organizations are developing and maintaining Web sites at an astonishing rate, more artistic and design expertise is required for those who develop and maintain these sites.
The course gives delegates an overview of IVHM technology and its role in businesses. IVHM is discussed relevant to all industry sectors, and draws widely on Cranfield's heritage in the aerospace industry.
The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of the principles of forensic and scientific investigations into art objects.
Urban agriculture and horticulture provide multiple functions and benefits to urban dwellers and cities. Their advantages are manifold: healthy nutrition, reduced loss of food due to inadequate transport and storage, poverty reduction through income opportunities and possible own consumption, education, leisure, and a greener liveable city with all its ecological benefits.
