MOOCs

TU/e offers various Massive Open Online Courses. These courses and specializations can be found at Coursera, the online study platform.

RF and millimeter-Wave Circuit Design

  • Field: Electircal Engineering
  • Course leader: Carlos Mendes, Jr. and Peter Baltus
  • Studyload: 30 hours

This Master-level course offered by the Center for Wireless Technology Eindhoven (CWT/e) of the TU/e. The course consists of theoretical lectures which will cover the basis of RF and mmWave Circuit Design, and (optional) design labs where students will include simulation and implementation of these circuits.

Improving Your Statistical Questions

  • Field: Probability and Statistics
  • Course leader: Daniel Lakens
  • Studyload: 18 hours

This course aims to help you to ask better statistical questions when performing empirical research. In this course we will discuss how to design informative studies. Next to that, we will reflect on how we can improve research practices to ask more interesting questions.

Improving your statistical inferences

  • Field: Probability and Statistics
  • Course leader: Daniel Lakens
  • Studyload: 28 hours

This course aims to help you to draw better statistical inferences from empirical research. In this course will be discussed how to correctly interpret different statistical values, and how these statistics answer different questions you might be interested in.

Ethics, Technology and Engineering

  • Field: Research Methods
  • Course leader: Lambèr Royakkers
  • Studyload: 31 hours

This course provides an introduction to ethics in engineering and technology. The focus of this course lays on the concrete moral problems that engineers encounter in their professional practice. Learners become in this course aware of the moral dimensions of technology and of the different demands of stakeholders. 

Sports and Building Aerodynamics

  • Field: Environmental Science and Sustainability
  • Course leader: Bert Blocken
  • Studyload: 24 hours

This course explains basic aspects of bluff body aerodynamics, wind tunnel testing and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations with application to sports and building aerodynamics. Key fields addressed are urban physics, wind engineering and sports aerodynamics.

Process Mining: Data science in Action

  • Field: Data Analysis
  • Course leader: Wil van der Aalst
  • Studyload: 22 hours

This course explains the key analysis techniques in process mining. Through concrete data sets and easy to use software the course provides data science knowledge that can be applied directly to analyze and improve processes in a variety of domains.

Microwave engineering and antennas

  • Field: Electrical Engineering
  • Course leader: Bart Smolders, Domine Leenaerts en Ulf Johanssen
  • Studyload: 38 hours

This unique Master-level course provides you with in-depth know-how of microwave engineering and antennas. The course combines both passive and active microwave circuits as well as antenna systems. This course will provide you with the required theoretical foundation as well as hands-on experience using state-of-the-art design tools.
