Active Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere ENV-716
Provide the students the basics to understand and analyze remotely sensed measurements from active systems like lidar (in particular temperature, humidity, aerosols) and radar (weather and cloud radar, wind profiler). 4 credits
Fracture Mechanics and Fatigue of Structures Civil-704
bloc course, Oct 23 – Nov.11, exam Nov.20th
Determination of stress intensity factors and application of fracture mechanics to structures made of different materials. Ability to apply fracture mechanics to predict brittle fracture + compute fatigue life of structural elements. Understanding of the influencing parameters + methods to determine them.
Scientific programming for Engineers Math-611
Thursday 10-12 and 13-15
The students will acquire a solid knowledge on the processes necessary to design, write and use scientific software, including the analysis of results. Modeling aspects, which constrain software design, will lead the students to algorithmic and complexity concepts inherent to all numerical calculation.
- See the EDCE regulations about credit allocation.
- No credits can be earned from Bachelor courses
- Credits from master courses and courses given at other universities must be pre-approved by the thesis director and the director of the doctoral program. The credits will be awarded only after the reception of an official transcript describing explicitly that an exam was passed, and providing the exact number of ECTS credits.
- Credits can be obtained from short courses or summer schools under the following conditions:
- The thesis director and the director of the doctoral program must approve the course
- An official transcript must be provided indicating the number of course hours, plus the number of ECTS credits if available.
- A formal exam must be passed to evaluate the learning outcomes of the course (a certificate of participation is not sufficient)
Note that the number of ECTS credits proposed by the course organizer does not necessarily correspond to the number of ECTS credits awarded by the doctoral program. The general rule is that a 5-day course is worth 1 ECTS.
- No credit can be obtained from conferences, seminars, symposium, workshops, internships, etc.
