Best Online Courses in Engineering Studies 2019/2020

A course is a very short program that enables students to study one topic area. Courses generally last a few weeks or months and can teach students specific skills or be more general in nature.

What is an online course in engineering studies? An engineering course usually focuses on introducing students to the basic concepts of the field. A course may be general in nature, offering a glimpse into various specialties within the field of engineering, or it may focus on one certain area. Courses may cover basic subjects, such as physics and mathematics, that are needed to work as an engineer. They may also go over concepts from the different areas of engineering, such as electronic, mechanical and aeronautical. If a program specializes in a specific area, students may study things such as fluid mechanics and telecommunications.

Skills learned in an engineering course may include electrical knowledge and advanced mathematical understanding. Students may be able to use the skills gained to enter a career field or to advance in a current field.

The cost of a course should come directly from the school where it will be taken. This is because costs vary widely from school to school due to various factors, such as course structure and base tuition.

Typically, a course in engineering is taken to allow students to preview the field. Some students may take a course in a specific area of engineering to allow them to get a feel for what they would learn in a degree program before they enroll. Students may go on to earn a degree in an engineering field and later work as biomedical engineers, electrical engineers, chemical engineers, aerospace engineers or civil engineers.

If you want to learn more about engineering, then taking a course in the subject may help you. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Learn how to apply cutting-edge knowledge of aeroacoustics in a simple and effective way. After taking this course you will be able to reliably measure noise in a variety of mechanical systems and develop noise reduction strategies to improve their aerodynamic design and performance.

Over the last few years, the field of aeroacoustics has developed rapidly in finding solutions for reducing noise from aircraft, engines, ventilation systems and wind turbines. However, finding the right balance between achieving maximum performance (of mechanical systems such as airplanes, cars, drones, etc.) and lowering their noise output to comply with noise regulations, and ensure people's comfort and health, is a complicated task....

Learn how to design and build with Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP), the new high-performance composite material for structural engineering.

Benefits of using FRPs FRPs offer designers opportunities for innovative, free-form design; Construction companies can benefit from reducing the weight of a bridge deck for example and experience a snowball effect with reductions in the costs for foundations, lifting equipment, transportation, bearings, etc.; Infrastructure owners can make profits in the long term by investing in FRP structures which are corrosion and fatigue-free and therefore exclude costly and time-consuming maintenance. FRPs in building and infrastructure

In this course, you will learn about engineering applications with FRPs in building and infrastructure development. There are more widely available courses about the use of composite materials in the field of aerospace engineering. But aspects and requirements such as scale, laminate composition, nature of loading, environment, life-span, production techniques and tolerances, quality control, inspection, and maintenance are quite different in construction projects compared with aerospace and automotive applications....

How do designers incorporate their personal vision for the future into their designs? Join this course to move beyond human-centered design and learn a unique design approach where your own vision plays a central role. This course provides training for professional designers and other innovation professionals in the design method 'Vision in Product Design' (ViP). ViP is a method developed at TU Delft that forces you to examine the ideas underlying your design in great detail, before coming to a manifestation: What exactly is it that you want people to understand, experience or do? The rationale behind this method is designing for the future. The majority of institutional design today is focused on a human-centered approach, using user research as the primary input for designing products and services. However, this approach is not foolproof, especially when designing for a future context which users cannot predict and/or do not have an explicit vision for. Instead of trying to formulate a product idea that matches the goal, the ViP method asks the designer to come up with a vision of the relationship between the user and the product, and then use that vision as the basis for your design. The ViP design approach is grounded in three basic principles:... [-]

Weight reduction is a key factor in the development of materials and components for use in many industries. Lightweight structures are widely used for this purpose. However, these structures present challenges: they need to be light but also safe, durable and easy to maintain. How can this be done?

This course provides an introduction to lightweight structures, starting with the "trinity" - the interaction between shape design, base material, and manufacturing. The evidence gained from both successes and failures demonstrates that the interaction between these three elements is crucial for successful designs and end products.

The course covers the design principles of lightweight structures; durability and fatigue; testing; manufacturing methods and mechanics. The main focus is on structures made with composites but the use of metals will be addressed as well.... [-]

Fatigue fractures may occur as a consequence of cyclic loading structures. In particular, within the context of fatigue and damage tolerance certification, engineers should have the knowledge and skills to analyze and assess fatigue life and fatigue performance. This includes the ability to design against fatigue and to validate designs with validated fatigue strength justifications. Fatigue fractures and related structural failures may be caused by a variety of factors, such as quality of applied materials, the production technology, the structural design, inappropriate reliability calculations, underestimations of load spectra, and inappropriate use of structures. With so many possible factors an integral and rigorous engineering approach is required.... [-]

This course delivers the skillset in linear or structural modeling that is required to solve structural problems from which you can develop finite element (FE) models for practical applications. It also teaches how results can be correctly interpreted. The course uses an open source FE package in a series of weekly practical sessions where models are constructed for sample problems and results are validated against simplified analytical models or open literature.

The majority of professionals in many branches of mechanical engineering will benefit from adding FEM to their skills array. The ability to develop modeling skills under supervision in a non-critical environment means that skills and techniques can be acquired in a logical, progressive manner.... [-]

Work disability occurs when a worker is unable to resume or remain at work because of a health problem. Poor employee health or work disability leads to productivity loss and imposes large individual, social, and economical burdens. It is also a major concern to workers, their families, employers, policymakers, insurers, and occupational health service providers. This online course is a short introduction to the topic and will give a good basis to attend part 2 and 3. The objectives of this online course are to disseminate transdisciplinary WDP knowledge with a focus on theoretical, methodological, ethical and practical challenges. The target audience is Ph.D. students, post-doctoral fellows, and practitioners with a master’s degree who are linked to the WDP field. The online course material is based on a traditional NIVA course held in Helsinki in June 2016. The lecturers are responsible for the content of their own lectures. NIVA is responsible for the composition of the online course. If you are interested in the subject area at large, or if you are planning to attend the NIVA course WDP 2 in June 2017 we recommend buying the online course and watching the material.... [-]
