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 Netherlands has a long and rich history and tradition in arts, design and artistic and technological innovation. Famous Dutch modern fine artists are Piet Mondriaan and Gerrit Rietveld (De Stijl), Karel Appel and Constant (COBRA) and architect Berlage (Amsterdamse School). Also modern artists who use technological innovations such as Peter Struyken, Mischa Klein, Daan Roosegaarde, Herm Maat and Theo Jansen are world renowned.
Are fossil fuels running out? Can nuclear power, carbon capture and storage or renewable energy sources provide solutions to the problem of global warming? How can we provide clean, safe, sustainable energy supplies for the UK, and the world, despite increasing population levels and affluence? In this course you will look at the basic principles underlying the design and efficient use of energy and energy supply systems.
Examine the roles that science and technology play in modern sport and develop an understanding of the scientific concepts that underpin many Olympic events.
The main objective of this course is to learn how to analyze several models with Mplus (e.g., path models, multiple group models, cross-lagged models, CFA, EFA, growth models, introduction to Bayesian models). No previous knowledge of Mplus is assumed, but prior knowledge of SEM, however not mandatory, will make this course more useful.
The program will study new sets of risks associated with these global dynamics of change and energy development
Functional materials possess unique native physicochemical properties and functions which are sensitive to changes in the local environment, such as changes via applied electromagnetic fields and in temperature and pressure. This course deals with several central themes in modern functional materials research, including the physical principles of self-assembly, design of bio-inspired materials, and characterisation and manipulation of atoms and molecules at materials’ interfaces. Introductory lectures and exercises are linked to high-level research conducted at the Department of Applied Physics, as the participants carry out practical project assignments during the course.
This course provides an opportunity to sample some of the key areas in computing and information technology. You will be introduced to three topics as tasters for your future studies and career: networking, Linux and robotics. Studying these topics will enable you to develop essential skills if you are considering future employment in the computing and IT industry.
Large Scale Complex Systems Simulation - This course will cover all aspects of simulating large-scale, complex systems. Lectures and talks will be given by renowned experts in the areas of complex systems, high-performance computing and large-scale simulations. The range of topics should be ideal for starting PhD students or final-year Master’s student interested in simulation and complex systems.
In deze master class leert u wat organisatienetwerken precies zijn en hoe zij kunnen bijdragen aan het succes van uw organisatie. We houden ons bezig met een gebalanceerde mix van wetenschappelijke theorie, praktijkvoorbeelden en onderzoeksresultaten op het gebied van waardecreatie door netwerken.
What does a sustainable energy system look like? How might renewable energy provide a much greater proportion of our energy needs in the coming decades? Which technologies and designs for the various renewable energy sources will we rely on to help us decarbonise our energy systems and maintain a secure supply of affordable electricity and heat? In this course you’ll explore these questions by systematically reviewing the eight main renewable energy technologies.
