Contribution au profil d'enseignement

This teaching unit contributes to the following competences:

  • In-depth knowledge and understanding of exact sciences with the specificity of their application to engineering

  • In-depth knowledge and understanding of the advanced methods and theories to schematize and model complex problems or processes

  • Reformulate complex engineering problems in order to solve them (simplifying assumptions, reducing complexity)

  • Correctly report on research or design results in the form of a technical report or in the form of a scientific paper

  • Collaborate in a (multidisciplinary) team

  • Work in an industrial environment with attention to safety, quality assurance, communication and reporting

  • Think critically about and evaluate projects, systems and processes, particularly when based on incomplete, contradictory and/or redundant information

  • A creative, problem-solving, result-driven and evidence-based attitude, aiming at innovation and applicability in industry and society

  • A critical attitude towards one’s own results and those of others

  • Consciousness of the ethical, social, environmental and economic context of his/her work and strives for sustainable solutions to engineering problems including safety and quality assurance aspects

  • The flexibility and adaptability to work in an international and/or intercultural context

  • Has an active knowledge of the theory and applications of electronics, information and communication technology, from component up to system level.

  • Has a profound knowledge of either (i) nano- and opto-electronics and embedded systems, (ii) information and communication technology systems or (iii) measuring, modelling and control.

  • Has a broad overview of the role of electronics, informatics and telecommunications in industry, business and society.

  • Is able to analyse, specify, design, implement, test and evaluate individual electronic devices, components and algorithms, for signal-processing, communication and complex systems.

  • Is able to model, simulate, measure and control electronic components and physical phenomena.
