Wind turbines involve many technical aspects: rotor blades, gearboxes, generators, control systems, etc. These are based on many physical disciplines, such as dynamics, statics, aerodynamics, and electricity. Anyone who wants to apply their scientific or engineering skills to wind turbines should have an overview of the technology with which they interact. This course provides such an overview and helps you understand how the various components of a wind energy system act together. This course gives students an overview of the multidisciplinary aspects of wind turbines without too much detailed study of the literature of all these aspects. It will explain the relevant technologies at a similarly accessible level....

Study Design in Etiologic Research
This course is a core component of any Master´s degree in Epidemiology and is also key to being able to follow specialized online medical courses in epidemiology. Its aim is for you to learn about the principles and practice of cohort, case-control and cross-sectional studies. We will discuss design, data collection, and outcome measures, as well as the major advantages and disadvantages of the different study designs. The emphasis will be on the application of study design in etiologic research. This online health course focuses on the more classical approach but also addresses modern concepts and design options, such as case-cohort designs. Various other study designs will also be discussed, with an emphasis on validity issues. Study Design in Etiologic Research is part of MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate Online; the online MSc program in Epidemiology offered by Utrecht University, University Medical Center Utrecht, MSc Epidemiology and Elevate....

Almeria, the leading European region in terms of fruits and vegetable production and exportation, is emerging as a prominent innovation hub for greenhouse technology and production. In the field of plant breeding, Almería concentrates a significant portion of the total horticulture seed business activity among the world. Indeed, the most notable Spanish and international companies are based in Almeria, producing novel horticultural varieties through intensive research and development programs. These novel varieties ”made in Almeria” are not only used in this Spanish region but also exported and cultivated in many different greenhouses all over the world. The area of Genetics at the University of Almería is in close collaboration with the seed companies and the productive system of Almería. More precisely, the HORTICULTURAL GENETICS research group accumulates more than 25 years of experience focusing on research and teaching activities in the field of plant biotechnology and breeding. The goal of the present course is to share our theoretical and practical knowledge regarding the biotechnology methods and tools widely used in horticultural crops breeding and production. To do so, our multidisciplinary group encompass the fields of genetics, plant physiology, plant production and food technology allowing us to perform high-throughput plant phenotyping for abiotic and biotic stress tolerance, nutrients, drought and salinity tolerance, and postharvest fruit quality. The phenomics studies are followed by molecular studies through high-throughput genotyping using next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies and bioinformatics analysis in order to identify plant materials, molecular markers and genes useful for developing novel cultivars...

Envision yourself in a bio lab or a psychology lecture. Now look around you—you’re surrounded by Dutch and international students. Your classroom isn’t in one of those old familiar buildings on your home campus; it’s in one of Europe’s most exciting and unique cities—Amsterdam—at an internationally-recognized research university, the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU).
With its strong course offerings in psychology and the sciences, you’ll find English-taught courses at the VU to apply to your major, from Experimental Cell Biology to The History and Philosophy of Psychology. You can dive deep into your major, but you also have the opportunity to expand your studies with IES Abroad course options, such as offerings in Dutch language and culture, sexuality and gender, studio art, and art history....
