Students follow in the footsteps of John Maynard Keynes and Amartya Sen, and are introduced to the theories that govern contemporary economic thought. They also discover the fundamentals and methodologies of economic modeling. They go on to test their knowledge against contemporary economic problems in order to understand how the world economy might evolve.

Students discover the economic institutions that affect all our lives, learn how they have changed over time, and the consequences of these changes. They develop a comprehensive grasp of contemporary economic and social institutions ("capitalism", "globalization" "the market") and their potential futures, not least by exploring their historical development.  Finally, they move on to address foundational concepts, principles, and assumptions of the dominant neoclassical economic theory (micro and macro).

Brexit, the future of the Euro - in this course students discover the economic institutions that affect all our lives, learn how they have changed over time, and the consequences of these changes.

Students learn the principles of engineering science. Both world-renowned and local examples are examined, and the findings applied to a variety of case studies to solve mechanical, structural, and architectural problems. They complete the course by designing a model engineering project of their own.
