Top 29 Courses in Natural Sciences 2019

Universities and colleges set their own admission requirements for higher education courses, so they vary broadly. Depending on the course, students may be able to get into higher education with a range of qualifications. If you're applying to do a course, you may find that work experience is taken into consideration alongside any qualifications you have. Some higher education institutes and colleges offer courses as preparation for a certain type of degrees. They usually don't result in separate criteria as they simply qualify you to enter the degree program itself. Courses can be taught in a broad selection of fields of study.

The natural sciences teach students how the natural world works and how it can be used to help humans. By studying natural sciences, you can apply your knowledge to the real world applications.

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....

Introduction

The potential of applications of microalgae to improve the quality of life of people is very high in 1) energy, 2) water treatment, 3) welfare and health promotion and 4) and food. The products are so varied that they range from active biomolecules with therapeutic capacity for the development of new medicines, food and functional ingredients, products for the dermocosmetic industry, aquaculture, animal feed, biofertilizers, biostimulants, to low value products such as chemical products. bulk, biofuels. Microalgae are also being used in the treatment of wastewater, and lip-absorption of greenhouse gases. However, the global productive capacity of microalgae barely reaches 20,000 tons / year, and its availability in the markets is very low, with relatively high biomass production prices. The above does not favor the development of new initiatives, which generally require little initial amount to do previous studies of research and economic, social and environmental sustainability. The perspectives in the mentioned markets (and especially in the production of chemical products in bulk and basic products) has triggered many institutional initiatives, from small, medium and large companies, to develop microalgae biotechnology throughout the world. All of them have in common the need to produce large amounts of biomass to reduce the current production cost and be competitive in those markets. The Marine Microalgae Biotechnology Group of UAL (BIO173) with experience in this field since 1987 offers its experience and facilities (see attached file word) to doctoral students, postdoctoral and postdoctoral researchers, as well as professionals from all over the world....
