Summary

An introduction to engineering-relevant computer-science concepts that are hardware and software independent. Outcomes include knowledge of the limits of computing, improved ability to understand the true value of new developments and capabilities to effectively select good computing methodologies

Content

The course is divided into two parts. The first part deals with concepts such as complexity, task analysis as well as strategies for representation and reasoning using engineering knowledge (1 week). The second part (1 week 1 month later) is devoted to seminars by Doctoral candidates on selected topics complemented by a "critique" and supplementary theoretical background by the teacher.
