This course gives an introduction into basic features and concepts of ethics with respect to scientific research, political institutions and business. It is laid out when and how responsibility arises. Basic moral values will be introduced, and together with common moral theories, these will be applied to several typical case studies in engineering. Various Codes of Ethics will be analyzed and discussed. We will also discuss values in the design process, environmental ethics, and space ethics.
There is a reading assignment to every session, which is a text from a pool consisting of introductory teaching material, Codes of Ethics from various organizations and papers about Engineering Ethics.

This seminar series intends to convey exciting aerospace research questions on a more general level and to allow discussions between experts and audience. Professionals from academia and industry will look into applications from space research, some of which have become vital parts of our everyday life. The technological challenges of astronautics and past, present and future space missions will also be tackled.

Research software development deserves a systematic approach to keep up with the demand for reproducible science and reuse of codes as a citeable scientific output.
In the context of Open Science, sustainable research software is more and more estimated as vital component of research infrastructures.
This course provides an introduction to the practice of scientific programming to a broader audience within the General Studies. The basis are real world research codes that will be explored and executed on local programming environments - either on students laptops or on central compute nodes at University Bremen.
Principles of code-management and code publication will be actively explored in small practical projects, open for students interests in bringing their own software projects. Two main "code use cases" are provided, based on Fortran and C programming language, and further projects are offered for R and C++ as well. Special emphasis is laid on performance optimization and two standard approaches of parallelization, i.e. loop parallelization and domain decomposition.

The course is useful for math students and interested participants from other fields (e.g. industrial math, numerics of PDEs, modeling seminar, material sciences - ProMat).

Intercultural competence is one of the most important key qualifications for moving confidently in international contexts.
In the Intercultural Training, participants learn methods, exercises and theories that facilitate intercultural communication and sensitize them to cultural conflict situations.
The seminar is open to all students and doctoral candidates (national/international) of the University of Bremen.
For submitting a reflection report in addition to attending the seminar, 3 ECTS can be awarded for General Studies. This is done in consultation with your department. Please note that we cannot award grades.
