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.
The primary objective of the program is to apply the contemporary concepts and methodology of the physical sciences to the solution of biological problems.
The ability to create modern, attractively designed page layouts and accurate printed documents is highly valued in design companies and many other types of business today. This course provides both the technical know-how and an understanding of the principles of visual language, to give you the confidence to make design decisions and help you develop a 'good eye' for design.
This course/seminar will address Information assurance (IA) which is the practice of assuring information and managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information or data and the systems and processes used for those purposes.
The course will address basic principles of stormwater management approaches in urban areas, such as Low Impact Development (LID), Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS), Sustainable Urban Drainage Schemes (SUDS), Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD), etc. The course focus will be on low-rise high density housing (LRHD) area opportunities and limitations for stormwater management approaches implementation.
The program deals with three aspects of creativity: 1.) Creativity in individuals - psychological view: Influence of intelligence and personality on creativity – Definition of creativity, methods to unfold creativity 2.) Creativity in teams: Team performance; Intercultural and interdisciplinary aspects of teams – Idea generation in teams, creativity techniques in teams 3.)
The participants of the Advanced Topics in Modern Engineering course will see the trends in production technology, history of production, will learn about the profile and characteristics of a modern engineer and explore the opportunities of academic as well as industrial career for a young engineer. The program will include technical as well as soft skills topics. During the program, an excursion to the Technical Museum of Vienna and one of production plants is planned.
You will be introduced to a new school of thought under Austrian architects and researchers under weekly changing focus on • Social and Cultural Specifics in Viennese Architecture 1850-1950 • Sustainable Architectural Design Made in Austria • Building in a Historical Context within Austria • Theoretical lectures and innovative presentations • Excursions to historical buildings and current building sites • Visits to architectural offices, companies and research institutions • Weekly public evening lectures by internationally acclaimed experts.
Istanbul is a unique case with its fragmented and complex layers in regard to its culture, architecture and geography. Working within the sensitive historic contexts of Istanbul requires far more than the specialist skills of an architect, conservator and/or city planner. In this regard, the course Building Istanbul Then and Now aims to create a comprehensive understanding of architectural culture of Istanbul in the last two centuries.
In this course in Art and Design we will be exploring the intersection between art and architecture in the city and branding cities through art and design. The course will combine lectures, excursions, slideshows and discussions on topics related to urban space, public art and branding cities. This process is accompanied by showing information about the symbiosis of art and architecture in the cities like Berlin, Graz, Beijing and Auckland.
The summer module ''Civil Engineering and Design'' aims at gaining professional competences in the field of building information modeling and computer visualization as well as development of creative thinking and non-standard approach application. The program is oriented on international students, whose major is Civil Engineering, Architecture, Art and Design, Information Technologies and Design.
