Thomas Kaiserfeld Dep. Swedish history of technology may not be an oxymoron by definition, but is still a concept laden with such an unconformity as to make it virtually impossible to handle in a stringent manner. In Sweden, research problems connected to technologies of the past are pursued within such a wide range of institutions and intellectual fields that it is a hopeless task indeed to give a full account without missing important themes, topics and projects. The task is not simplified if one is to include all those historians of technology interested in empirical material that can be denoted Swedish in one way of another. Thus, the following is not to be regarded as a full report, but rather a superficial and personally biased review with ambitions set far too high. They are an indication of the institutional and intellectual multitude of history of technology in this country.

Course development and history. Construction of mathematical models. Formula checks. Model fitting. Dimensional analysis. Simulation modelling. Technology does not exist in Nature — all technology is designed by man.
While the natural sciences focus on laws of Nature, the science of technology is mainly concerned with the methods that humans use to design and manufacture objects to fulfil our wants and desires.
These are also the main topics for this course in Engineering Science. Sundin, Den kupade handen, Carlssons, Giordano, M. Weir, and W. Grimvall, Basic facts and skills in physics. ANN1 - Assignments, 4. The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students. Homework assignments, hand in exercises, participation in seminars and lectures, and didactic presentation.
Since the course is based on continuous examination, presence during scheduled lessons is essential. Anita Kullen.
