COURSE DESCRIPTION - ENGINEERING
Some of the Engineering courses we offer at Patwillisedu.
This aerodynamics course focuses on the study of the flow of air about a body, and the “body” will be an airplane, but many of the concepts explored are relevant to a wide variety of applications from sailboats to automobiles to birds. Learners completing this aerodynamics course will gain a fundamental understanding of concepts and models used to aerodynamically analyze and design subsonic, transonic, and supersonic aircraft.
While the course is an introduction to aerodynamics, it is an advanced subject typically taken as a third or fourth year undergraduate subject in aerospace engineering.
Have you ever flown in an airplane and are you curious about how flying works? Are you interested in the fundamental concepts behind flying? How does a wing generate lift? And how can we fly as optimally as possible?
This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of aeronautics, using a tour through the history of flight, starting with ballooning and continuing on to airplanes and helicopters.
Experts from the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering of Delft University of Technology will help you explore and discover the fundamentals of flight, in three blocks.

Imaging technologies form a significant component of the health budgets of all developed economies, and most people need advanced imaging such as MRIs, X-Rays and CT Scans (or CAT Scans) during their life. Many of us are aware of the misinformation sometimes offered in TV dramas, which either exaggerates the benefits or overemphasizes the risks.
This course focuses on early-stage biotechnology companies, with particular emphasis on understanding the underlying science, technology, and disease targets—together with the application of novel business structures and financing methods—to facilitate drug discovery, clinical development, and greater patient access to new therapies.
Vacuum technology is key to our high-tech society. It is is used for a large number of technical processes and products, including computer chips, nanostructures, microelectronic coatings and components as well as chemical and biological techniques.
This course specifically includes tools and processes in SNF and SNSF. Prior to getting in-lab and hands-on training on particular pieces of equipment or processes in these facilities, lab members need to go through appropriate sections and subsections of this course. Please note this is an on-going course as we add more tool and processing sections (utilizing information from our current webpages, and creating new material), and also as we add and change tools and procedures in our ever-evolving facilities.
This module is currently offered in the Lyles School of Civil Engineering as part of the CE57200 “Prestressed Concrete Design” 3-Credits (CR) course in the area of structural engineering available to senior undergraduate/graduate students. It integrates science and engineering principles to design prestressed concrete members and structural systems. The application of scientific and engineering knowledge is demonstrated in solving engineering problems associated with the design of precast prestressed building members both composite and non-composite for superimposed loads, and one-way post-tensioned floor slabs systems bonded and unbonded also composite and non-composite for superimposed loads.
Non-destructive testing (NDT) is used across industries to ensure product integrity and reliability; it is used in the aerospace, defense, oil and gas, and automotive sectors. In civil engineering, NDT is commonly used to detect flaws and defects in concrete elements and structures.
This course will equip students with necessary fundamental knowledge related to NDT. Topics covered include mechanical properties and linear fracture mechanics of materials; testing procedures of commonly used materials and structures; techniques such as elasticity, fracture mechanics, and wave propagation.
Digital systems have revolutionized our world. From television to cell phones to GPS to warfare to automobiles to medicine to distance education, computers and digital processing have reshaped the way we live and work. The semiconductor industry has grown from $21B in 1985 to $412B in 2019, making it one of the largest sectors of the economy. Computers are also a vital part of daily practice in every field of science and engineering.

Students will find out in this rigorous mathematical introduction to the engineering field of signal processing: the study of signals and systems that extract information from the world around us. This course will teach students to analyze discrete-time signals and systems in both the time and frequency domains. Students will learn convolution, discrete Fourier transforms, the z-transform, and digital filtering. Students will apply these concepts in interactive MATLAB programming exercises (all done in browser, no download required).
This course provides the essential foundations required to understand the operation of semiconductor devices such as transistors, diodes, solar cells, light-emitting devices, and more. The material will primarily appeal to electrical engineering students whose interests are in applications of semiconductor devices in circuits and systems. The treatment is physical and intuitive, and not heavily mathematical.
Products and equipment all around us are made of materials: look around you and you will see phones, computers, cars, and buildings. We face challenges in securing the supply of materials and the impact this has on the planet. Innovative product design can help us find solutions to these challenges. This course will explore new ways of designing products.
