MSE Master of Science in Engineering

The Swiss engineering master's degree

Chaque module vaut 3 ECTS. Vous sélectionnez 10 modules/30 ECTS parmi les catégories suivantes:

  • 12-15 crédits ECTS en Modules technico-scientifiques (TSM)
    Les modules TSM vous transmettent une compétence technique spécifique à votre orientation et complètent les modules de spécialisation décentralisés.
  • 9-12 crédits ECTS en Bases théoriques élargies (FTP)
    Les modules FTP traitent de bases théoriques telles que les mathématiques élevées, la physique, la théorie de l’information, la chimie, etc., vous permettant d’étendre votre profondeur scientifique abstraite et de contribuer à créer le lien important entre l’abstraction et l’application dans le domaine de l’innovation.
  • 6-9 crédits ECTS en Modules contextuels (CM)
    Les modules CM vous transmettent des compétences supplémentaires dans des domaines tels que la gestion des technologies, la gestion d’entreprise, la communication, la gestion de projets, le droit des brevets et des contrats, etc.

Managing complexity and innovation in aviation (TSM_CompAvi)

Macro: Role of innovation within aviation industry, growth-driven economy, National Innovation Systems, mission oriented policies, the entrepreneurial state, role of SDGs, competitive forces

Micro: Role of innovation at firm and entrepreneur levels

Appreciation and understanding of complexity and complex systems, particularly from an innovation perspective, identifying and understanding problems and identifying solutions through entrepreneurial methods.

Measuring, visualising and modelling complex systems, including networks.

Methods for protecting and exploiting ideas, incl. patents, trade secrets, standards, lobbying.

Methods and principles of innovation incl. open innovation, technology readiness assessments (TRA), technology roadmaps, biomimicry, technological determinism and momentum, serendipity, uncertainty, risks vs. rewards, business model innovation, business model canvas.

Failures, frauds and fiascos – a closer look and where innovation can go wrong and methods of mitigation (e.g. whistleblowing).

Students will also develop and present an elevator pitch of an innovation based on techniques learned in the course.

Based on availability, experts from industry will be invited to share their experiences on related topics.

Compétences préalables

Modelling methods

Objectifs d'apprentissage

Understand and enhance performance in complex systems. Cope with interdependence and uncertainly. Develop new solutions in a complex market.

Assess potential for innovation: Take advantage of opportunities, avoid unnecessary risks.

Balance multiple requirements: political, economic, social, technological legal and environmental.

Ultimately: understand and respect that meaning of innovation in a complex world -- and that innovation is not merely about novelty, or is it a buzzword.
