Program Description

Systems are everywhere. The aim of this 3 week course is to train students with an engineering background into this important discipline. System Dynamics is an excellent framework to design models, work with models in interdisciplinary projects, add knowledge to models in an iterative fashion, and develop analyses for predictions, robustness, and resilience. The course, led by Prof. Joaquín Goñi will take place in Pamplona, Spain. Classes will be held at Clen College in Pamplona. Students will take a "Spanish for Engineers" course or a beginning Spanish class (determined by your level of Spanish). This will be a 6 credit program for both classes. Some other program highlights will be: Tour of Pamplona, Tapas tasting, Visit to the Presidential Palace, Office of the State President, excursion to the San Sebastian aquarium, excursion to Roncesvalles. You will also visit a car manufacturer, alternative energy manufacturer, and a biomedical company.
