5.1. Methodological overview

The learning process that is designed for this subject is based on the following:

The proposed methodology seeks to promote the continued work of the student and focuses on both the theoretical and practical aspects of reverse engineering and prototyping, as well as its main applications and application sectors.

In sessions with the whole group the more theoretical aspects are addressed in the form of participatory master class and are completed by the study of real technical cases. Practical work with computer applications is developed in smaller groups and will focus on working methodologies based on cases to facilitate the completion of the draft of the subject.

knowledge of equipment and technologies for work and practical sessions with a rapid prototyping company visit with other rapid prototyping technologies integrated into new product development as an everyday activity is complemented.

5.2. Learning tasks

The program is offered to help the student to achieve the expected results and includes the following activities:

Learning activities are divided into participatory scheduled lectures, case studies and tutored projects
