MOOCs offered by ENSTA Paris
MOOC in Quantum physics
ENSTA Paris launched its first MOOC in February 2016 on quantum physics, taught by Davide Boschetto, teacher-researcher at the Applied Optics Laboratory (LOA). The first session of this course received more than 5,000 enrolments, and new sessions have been organised regularly since.
MOOC Fundamentals of Fluid-Solid Interactions
What is fluid-solid interactions ? It is what happens when the motions of a fluid and of a solid are somehow coupled. This happens all the time, around you when leaves flutter in the wind, inside you when your heart beats, above you when wings of a plane vibrate, under the sea... The idea behind this MOOC is to give you the basic tools to be able to predict and eventually mitigate things called flutter, galloping, sloshing, vortex-induced vibrations, added mass, to cite a few. Taught by Olivier Doaré, lecturers-researchers at the Mechanical Laboratory of ENSTA Paris and speakers from the Ecole Polytechnique.
MOOC Fundamentals of waves and vibrations
Waves are everywhere. On water of course, but also in the air as you hear a plane, and under your feet during an earthquake certainly. Vibrations, too, are everywhere In your bike as you go over a bump, in you guitar as you play, and of course in your smartphone. You can guess that there is something in common behind all this. This is exactly the purpose of this course! Taught by Jean-François Semblat and Olivier Doaré, lecturers-researchers at the Mechanical Laboratory of ENSTA Paris and speakers from the Ecole Polytechnique.
MOOC From Seismology to Earthquake Engineering
This course ranges from the earth structure, the generation of earthquakes and seismic waves by faults to the seismic response of soils, foundations and structures as well as seismic risk. It is consequently aimed at undergraduates, graduates and professionals interested in engineering seismology, earthquake engineering or seismic risk. It investigates various technical fields: rock mechanics, soil dynamics, structural dynamics and dynamic soil-structure interaction. Taught by Jean-François Semblat, lecturer-researcher at the Mechanical Laboratory of ENSTA Paris and speakers from the Ecole Polytechnique.
