Climate goals, argumentation, evidence

The main goal of this course is to teach you basic knowledge and skills in argumentation.You will be engaged in co-constructing evidence-based justifications as well as in analyzing existing justifications in search of argumentation fallacies. Individual work as well as group-based work will allow you to practice. You will analyze climate-related articles (published in scientific literature but also in the news) and will extract the implicit underlying arguments and provide their analysis.Ultimately, this course will help you to develop basic argumentative skills needed to critically join the debate in society on climate goals. Who is the course for?CLIMATE GOALS, ARGUMENTATION, EVIDENCE is aimed at anyone who is interested in moving the first steps into the argumentation domain with the purpose of joining the debate on climate goals.An engineer (but also a politician) is expected to have founded arguments before taking any (climate-related) action. A citizen is expected to have founded arguments before engaging and sustaining any climate-related political agenda. How is the course structured?The course is a 4-week course. Each week mainly focuses on a single Intended Learning Outcome.

Computer Networks II

This course will provide a detailed theoretical and practical knowledge in the art of configuring and securing computer networks and create network topologies. Together with Computer Networks I, distance course (Datakommunikation i nätverk I, distanskurs) you will be covering most, but not all, of the content that are part of a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certificate. The certificate is not part of this course.

Digital twins, XR and AI for Industry 4.0

By taking part in this course you will learn about the role of visualization in industrial applications with a specific focus on Industry 4.0. You will learn how to evaluate and develop production systems and processes that integrate visualization technologies, such as digital twins, virtual and augmented reality and are supported by artificial intelligence.

Hydrogen for a clean future

Hydrogen is a clean fuel, a versatile energy carrier, and seems to be the answer to the climate change challenge. Why is everyone talking about it, and how is it going to replace traditional fuels? This modularized course provides a comprehensive overview on hydrogen as an energy carrier, with focus on fuel cell as hydrogen conversion technology. Hydrogen production and storage and their role in decarbonization will be covered. Different fuel cell technologies will be analyzed and discussed to present benefits and challenges in the use of hydrogen for power production, urban mobility, aviation, transportation, residential sector and much more. The learners will be able to combine the available modules to create their personalized education based on their needs and get insights on where and when hydrogen can play a role in a carbon-free society.

Introduction to Climate Aware Software Engineering

The information and communication technology (ICT) sector is responsible for approx. 1.8-2.8% of the global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2020, and software is both part of the problems and the solutions. Traditional software engineering principles and techniques do not consider the climate, environment, and sustainability aspects in building and using software for any purpose. We, software engineers, developers, researchers, climate scientists, and various other related stakeholders, need to think about how we can reduce the carbon footprint due to building and using software-intensive systems. Green and sustainable software engineering is an emerging concept that can help reduce the carbon footprint related to software. In this introductory course, we will introduce the concept of green and sustainable software engineering and the engineering process to build green and sustainable software. Topics Sustainable and green computing Sustainable and green software engineering Process Energy efficient computing Sustainability issues in Scientific computing You will learnBy the end of the course, you will be able to: analyze the green and sustainability issues in traditional software engineering, identify and incorporate key elements to be included in the software engineering process to make the software green and sustainable, and use techniques to make your software code energy efficient. Who is the course for?This course is designed for those who are software developers, managers and software related policy makers, or have knowledge about software development, and want to consider the green and sustainability aspects in their everyday life. Also, this course will be useful for computational scientists who build green software and want to know more about these aspects in software engineering. However, this is an introductory course, and it will show a path for life-long learning to build more in-depth knowledge in each concept introduced in this course.

Introduction to Industry 4.0

Do you want to learn the basics of Industry 4.0, at your own pace, whenever you want? Then the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) Introduction to Industry 4.0 is for you.

Introduction to Machine Learning

Today, the explosion of data has created new opportunities to apply machine learning (ML). Handling of the large amounts of data created by the very rapid digitization would not be possible without Machine Learning (ML). The purpose of the course "Introduction to Machine Learning" is to give you the foundation for ML. You will get an introduction to the basic areas of ML: data, statistics and probability for ML.
