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.
Graphic Design and Photo editing/manipulation. The PhotoShop CS5 Summer Training Course at the Marbella Design Academy will illustrate how to use Adobe PhotoShop to perform a multitude of different image-processing techniques.
A rush to green is underway, but expertise and integrity are often missing. Green job education is critical at all levels and pathways from green collar to CEO. This program is designed to provide students with the knowledge necessary for a career in energy management and renewable energy technology.
The BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Construction and the Built Environment (QCF) is recognised across the construction industry as an ideal start for those wishing to progress towards supervisory or technician roles, or professional qualifications.
Nanotechnology is the identification, application and use of novel behaviour that occurs at the nanoscale to solve real-world problems. The discipline requires a breadth of understanding that is much wider than just the equations and scientific principles that underlie that behaviour. This introductory course gives an overview of the current state of nanotechnology as well as introducing the implications of these new technologies for safety, regulation, and innovation. The course provides an overview of the societal and environmental implications of nanotechnology.
Randomized controlled trials are the gold standard for causal inference. Using an experimental and a control group, double-blind and with a placebo, the effect of an intervention can be neatly determined. But this ideal scenario is not always practicable, or even ethically desirable. What if we want to know how effective sex-offender treatments are? Or whether employment makes people happier? In such cases, special methods have to be used to be able to make causal statements.
Discoveries in the biological sciences increasingly require combining sophisticated technologies, quantitative measurements, and theoretical approaches such as bioinformatics, mathematical modelling and computer simulations.
International Semester Program “Biological Engineering”, offered by Siberian Federal University (SibFU), constitutes a Special English-taught Module of Master in Biophysics. The Program is aimed at students having background in natural science and wishing to master contemporary methodology of scientific research in order to pursue career in the field of biological engineering.
This course will provide both theoretical background and hands-on experience with business process management (BPM), improvement and innovation. On the one hand it is important for organizations to have grip on their processes, and to continually evaluate and improve their processes in an evolutionary way; Information Technology (IT) can play a supporting role in this. On the other hand innovative IT can play a disruptive role for businesses. In this course both aspects will be illustrated and discussed.
Mechanical engineering is a field with almost limitless opportunities. It's all about the design, development, installation, operation and maintenance of just about anything with moving parts. Our BTEC Mechanical Engineering course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to enter a field which can see you gaining mechanical engineering jobs in transport, health, defence, manufacturing, entertainment, building and even the space industry.
This key introductory Level 1 course provides a gentle start to the study of mathematics. It will help you to integrate mathematical ideas into your everyday thinking and build your confidence in using and learning mathematics.
