OCW Seminar: Program and sign-up form available

Friday, October 9th 2009, TU Delft Bureau OpenER organises an OCW Seminar, to share experiences, show what Open CourseWare has to offer to institutions and to discuss the future of the OCW initiative in the Netherlands.

The program is interesting to both institutions thinking about joining the OCW initiative or wanting to start but don’t know how and institutions who want to participate in shaping the future of the Dutch OCW initiative at the whole.

This Seminar will take place following the Board meeting on Ocotber 7th and 8th of the International OCW Consortium board members. Thus, Mary Lou Forward (Director OCW Consortium) will be the Key-note speaker. The preliminary program can be found here (with reservations).

So, don’t wait any longer and sign up for the OCW Seminar. Participation is free. Coffey, tea, lunch and drinks afterwords will be provided.  More information will follow soon.

TU Delft opencourseware published two new courses today

Today TU Delft ocw has published two new courses:

Transportation:Transportation is  part 1 of Transportation and Spatial Modelling. The second part is still under construction.

Stochastic Evolution Equations: Stochastic Evolution Equations is not a regular TU Delft course. It is an international online course. The annual Internet Seminars are organised by the German-Italian consortium "International School on Evolution Equations". Each year a different university offers lectures on a topic of their choice.

The eleventh Internet Seminar "Stochastic Evolution Equations" has been organised by Analysis group of Delft University of Technology, with financial support from an NWO-VICI grant. The virtual lecturer was Jan van Neerven

New course on watermanagement

We justed added another course today. It’s the course Pumping Stations and Transport Pipelines.

Two new NanoScience course

We have published two new NanoScience courses on our OpenCourseWare site:

  • Advanced solid state physics
    This course is about the electronic properties of materials and contains
    lectures about scattering, transport in metals, phonons and superconductivity.
  • Quantum Information Processing
    Quantum Information Processing aims at harnessing quantum physics to
    conceive and build devices that could dramatically exceed the capabilities of
    today’s "classical" computation and communciation systems. In this course, we
    will introduce the basic concepts of this rapidly developing field.

New course about Mesoscopic Physics

Today we have added a new course in the NanoScience program:

Mesoscopic Physics
Mesoscopic physics is the area of Solid State
physics that covers the transition regime between macroscopic objects
and the microscopic, atomic world.The main goal of the course is to
introduce the physical concepts underlying the phenomena in this field.

New courses added

Yesterday and today 4 more courses have been added to our OpenCourseWare website.

The added courses are:

  • Solar Cells from the MicroElectronics program.
    Advanced semiconductor devices as a new source of energy for the 21st
    century, which deliver electricity directly from sunlight. The suitable
    semiconductor materials, device physics, and fabrication technologies
    for solar cells are presented. The guidelines for design of a complete
    solar cell system for household application are explained. The cost
    aspects, market development, and the application areas of solar cells
    are presented.
  • Technology and Global Development from the Sustainable Development program.
    Rich and poor: contrasts, how these contrasts came to be, and current developments.
  • Technology Dynamics & Transition Management from the Sustainable Development program.
    This version of the subject Technology Dynamics and Transition
    Management was tought in co-operation with the Harbin Institute of
    Technology in China. At the heart of this module lies a model of
    technology development from a social perspective, which will be applied
    to water problems in present-day China.

  • System Identification and Parameter Estimation from the BioMechatronics program.
    This course is about non-parametric system identification based on
    estimators of spectral densities and its application to open-loop and
    closed-loop systems. Furthermore parameter estimation for linear and
    non-linear systems playes an important role.

For a complete overview of our courses, you can take a look the page AvailableCourses.

New courses added

There are new courses available of the master programmes
NanoScience and BioMechatronics and the track Technology in Sustainable

In the last week we have added a couple of new courses:

  • Advanced Statistical Mechanics
    course is the first course of NanoScience pilot. This course deals with
    ensemble theory, noninteracting classical and quantum systems and much
  • Bio Mechatronics
    is a contraction of biomechanics and mechatronics. In this course the
    function and coordination of the human motion apparatus is the central
    focus, and the design of assistive devices for the support of the
    function of the motion apparatus.
  • Biomedical Engineering Design
    course presents a design philosophy and a design approach, dedicated to
    rehabilitation technology. This field was selected because of
    human-machine interaction is inherent and vital. Illustrative examples
    will be discussed by their entire design proces.
  • Technics and Future
    This is the first course of the track Technology in Sustainable Development.
