Specific competences


C26. Basic Knowledges of production and manufacturing systems.

5.1. Methodological overview

The in-person training process will be given in three main levels: theory classes, exercises classes and laboratory, with a growing level of participation by the student.

In the sessions with the complete group, It will be illustrated the theoretical concepts in a master class format. These concepts will be reinforced with exercise resolution and case studies. The practical sessions will be organized in smaller groups in order to work with dedicated software applications and equipment from the manufacturing laboratory.

This process shall be completed with the alumni’s personal work for preparation readings, theory study and exercises completion.

5.2. Learning tasks

The program presented to the alumni in order to help him to achieve the expected results, comprises the following activities:

Theory Classes (28h), including the content illustration with presentations and examples. This will facilitate the definitions, concepts and theoretical basis learning process regarding the different manufacturing process and any other content of the subject. The scheduled learning activities are grouped considering the topics indicated in the program.

Practical classes (14 h), performance problems and cases involving students, coordinated at all times with the theoretical contents.

Practical sessions (18 h), programmed with the topics listed in the program.
