3. Course contents *

This caleidoscopic course aims to unify the understanding of different technological domains by focusing on the most important basic engineering concepts transcending the different domains. We treat fundamental concepts such as models and scientific laws, dynamic behavior and stability, conservation laws and entropy. We further present an overview of the fundamentals of the design and analysis of technological products.
