Increasing your productivity while you have nothing to do during Corona break. Spending enough hours in the day to without of your tasks or goals can be difficult. Sometimes the day has slipped away and you have accomplished little, and you don’t know why. It is also frustrating when you know that part of the reason you cannot get anything done is because of a lockdown or because you cannot utilize your time well.

Invest some time in one or more of these courses to help increase your productivity.

  1. Advanced Hydraulics

“This course on “Advanced Hydraulics” describes the flows and properties in open channels. A total of 41 lectures are devised for this course. After attending this course, a student will be able to describe the various types of flows in open channels, the velocity distribution across and along the channel, hydraulic jumps, and turbines and pumps.

The student will be able to design the channel sections and drains, jumps, and pumps for various hydraulic and hydrologic projects.”

  1. Dynamics and Controls

This is an interactive course about the basic concepts of Systems, Control and their impact on all human activities. First, the basic concepts of systems, dynamics, structure, and control are introduced. Then, looking at many examples in Nature and human-made devices, we will realize that the dynamic behavior of most systems can be modified by adding a control system. Later we will see how knowing how to evaluate the dynamic behavior of a system and measure its performance will provide the tools to design new controlled systems fulfilling some requirements.

  1. Entrepreneurship in Emerging Economies

The focus of this course is on individual agency—what can you do to address a defined problem? While we will use the lens of health to explore entrepreneurial opportunities, you will learn how both problems and solutions are inevitable of a multi-disciplinary nature, and we will draw on a range of sectors and fields of study.

  1. Geotechnical Measurements & Explorations

The course prepares the student (graduate level) to be able to make effective learning of soil exploration, in-situ tests, and interpretation of test results in the design of foundation and soil-structure interaction problems. The first module is on index property tests, consolidation tests, direct shear tests, etc and is a general overview. The remaining modules, dealing with triaxial (static and cyclic) and simple shear testing under stress and strain control with pore pressure measurements, subsurface exploration, planning, drilling and sampling techniques and in situ field tests, relevant theoretical concepts and data interpretations for determination of engineering properties of soils, and their application to geotechnical design are presented in such a manner that readers who are unfamiliar with the subject will not face any serious problems in understanding.

  1. Research Methods: An Engineering Approach

This course is designed for engineering students conducting postgraduate research work on engineering projects. The objective of the course is to translate current research methods, which are mostly from a social science perspective, into something more relatable and understandable to engineers. Our hope for this course is to go beyond the concepts to understand the actual reasons for doing research in a certain way. While engineers are the main target audience, non-engineers will find this information useful as well.
