  1. Learning Outcomes

    Learning Outcomes

    The course learning outcomes, specific knowledge, skills and competences of an appropriate level, which the students will acquire with the successful completion of the course are described.

    Consult Appendix A

    • Description of the level of learning outcomes for each qualifications cycle, according to the Qualifications Framework of the European Higher Education Area

    • Descriptors for Levels 6, 7 & 8 of the European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning and Appendix B

    Guidelines for writing Learning Outcomes

    Upon completion of the course, students will be able:




    • To distinguish the steps of evolution of technology and automata from ancient times until today.

    • To identify the basic concepts related to the technology of automatic control.

    • To carve the road leading from the desire to the result, as it is indicated from the vision to the implementation of automata through their evolution from mythical to Hellenistic automata.

    • To modify the motion of a body by means of an external energy source to its own self-motion by means of an internal source of energy.

    • To combine the progress of science and technology of automatic control with other sciences, social development and culture of man from ancient Greek tradition to the Renaissance, the Industrial Revolution and the modern era.




    General Competences

    Taking into consideration the general competences that the degree-holder must acquire (as these appear in the Diploma Supplement and appear below), at which of the following does the course aim?

    Search for, analysis and synthesis of data and information, with the use of the necessary technology

    Adapting to new situations

    Decision-making

    Working independently

    Team work

    Working in an international environment

    Working in an interdisciplinary environment

    Production of new research ideas

    Project planning and management

    Respect for difference and multiculturalism

    Respect for the natural environment

    Showing social, professional and ethical responsibility and sensitivity to gender issues

    Criticism and self-criticism

    Production of free, creative and inductive thinking

    ……

    Others…



    …….

    • The study of the historical evolution of Technology and Automata develops the ability to investigate the technological methods and inventions, to analyze concepts and data, especially the properties of living beings, and to create self-motivated and self-controlled machines able to replace the man.

    • The teamwork, of two or more students, develops the skills of collectivity, dialogue, communication and cooperation.

    • The course develops the interdisciplinary approach, expanding the research area in many fields and disciplines and connecting technology with history, art and culture. It also cultivates the spirit of research and the production of novel ideas, impelling students towards innovation and creation.

    • The variety of innovations in the world and throughout the centuries exceeds both the technical and national boundaries, enhancing therefore the respect to diversity and multiculturalism.

    • The continuous search for new methods to overcome the technical limits, for different ways to build modern machines, for new solutions arising from the utilization of prior experience and practice, leading to the growing of free, creative and inductive thinking.

  2. SYLLABUS

  1. Introduction to the History of Technology and Automata – Basic concepts.

  2. Parallel evolution of Technology and Society – The main periods that characterize the History of Technology and the role of Automata during these periods.

  3. The Homeric Shield of Achilles as an example of the transition from poetic description to technical creation.

  4. Mythical Technology and mythical Automata – The Automata as a vision.

  5. Technology in Herodotus - The first historical Automata in the Mediterranean.

  6. The evolution of the Greek technical conception of flight – Daedalos, Archytas, Kleoitas.

  7. The philosophical prehistory of automatic control in the pre-Socratic and classical times – Contradiction, Feedback, Cybernetics.

  8. The evolution of Greek technical conception of time measurement – Self-regulating hydraulic clocks and the Antikythera Mechanism.

  9. The engineers from Alexandria – Ktesibios, Filon and Heron. Programming of motion and closed loop automatic control systems in the Hellenistic period.

  10. Meta-Hellenistic, Byzantine and Arabic automata.

  11. Automata and European Renaissance – Leonardo da Vinci.

  12. Automata and Industrial Revolution – The innovations that led to the first steam engine.

  13. Modern evolution of automatic control.
