Things* Fundamentals - Understand how the hardware stack is emerging and developing. From design, prototyping to manufacturing to electrical and mechanical engineering, security and machine data analysis. Bridge the gap between hardware and software and learn how to move fluent between both worlds.

Things* Business - Hardware as a business differs from software companies in fundamental ways, in the need to manufacture and distribute physical goods. Understand how to develop a hardware business model, fund and market your business. Scale up from prototyping to large-run manufacturing.

Things* Interfaces - Discover how electronics, robotics, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and other post screen interfaces unlock the physical world from consumer, health care, agriculture, mining to heavy industry.

Things* Materials  - From Graphene - a 2D structure with a breaking strength 300 time greater than steel, as well as the lightest and best intrinsic conductor - to Synthetic Biology which makes it easy to print DNA, put it into a living cell or cell system, run experiments, and do living biology alongside computation. Learn how to add the material world to your toolbox and use it to translate between pure information and physical objects.
