Department assigned to the subject: Department of Systems Engineering and Automation

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Students are expected to have completed
It is an introductory course to the Master, so all those admitted (according to the Master's regulations) may take it.
Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
BASIC COMPETENCE CB7 That students know how to apply the knowledge acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study CB8 That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of making judgments based on information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments CB9 That students know how to communicate their conclusions and the knowledge and ultimate reasons that sustain them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way CB10 That students have the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous GENERAL COMPETENCES CG1 Knowledge and understanding of the theoretical foundations of both industrial processes and services, and communications. CG2 Ability to model, identify basic requirements and analyze various processes. CG6 Capacity to adapt to changes in requirements associated with new products, new specifications and environments. SPECIFIC COMPETENCES CE1 Ability to design automatic process systems (production machinery, transport and storage systems and quality control) and the interconnection between their different modules (industrial protocols) CE3 Ability to program and simulate robot control systems at high, intermediate and low levels CE5 Ability to know and understand the structure of networks and protocols involved in distributed applications and IoT / M2M environments LEARNING RESULTS After studying this subject the student will be able to: - Identify the models and reference structures of the Connected Industry 4.0, its component parts and interconnection. - Identify and know the industrial production technologies involved in the Connected Industry 4.0. - Identify and know the communication protocols applied to the Connected Industry 4.0. Skills of selection, design and application of general communications and their protocols.
