Nanotechnology is an emerging area that engages almost every technical discipline – from chemistry to computer science – in the study and application of extremely tiny materials. This short course allows any technically savvy person to go one layer beyond the surface of this broad topic to see the real substance behind the very small.
This course provides a brisk, challenging, and dynamic treatment of differential and integral calculus, with an emphasis on conceptual understanding and applications to the engineering, physical, and social sciences.
Ce cours donne les bases théoriques et pratiques nécessaires à une bonne compréhension et utilisation des microcontrôleurs. De nombreux exemples seront abordés. Des exercices seront proposés, compatibles avec les cartes à microcontrôleurs Arduino ou LaunchPad MSP430G.
The course explores visionary and practical concepts of city design and planning, past and present, and how design can address such looming challenges as urban population growth, climate change and rising sea levels. Participants will be encouraged to make proposals for city design and development, starting with their own immediate environment.
Le but de ce cours de base en géomatique est de présenter un aperçu des méthodes d'acquisition, de modélisation et de représentation des données à référence spatiale. Les ingénieurs civils et en environnement devront comprendre le rôle et les enjeux de la géomatique face aux disciplines de la construction, de l'aménagement et de l'environnement.
This introduction to engineering course will help you learn modeling and analysis techniques for electrical, mechanical, and chemical systems and discover how engineered systems that seem very different are actually very similar.
This hands-on laboratory course complements Coursera's Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering. The course develops basic skills in constructing and measuring electrical circuits using modern laboratory instruments.
