Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The course is based on lectures given by the two professors and on applications given to the students if the form of homeworks. The course content is updated yearly following the research progresses made by both teachers in their respective fields and by the scientific community.
Several industrial visits and labs are also organised for the students to illustrate the theoretical content of the course.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The evaluation is based on the quality of the homeworks, projetcs and on an oral discussion between the professors and the students.
