Coordinating teacher: DIAZ ALVAREZ, ANTONIO

Department assigned to the subject: Mechanical Engineering Department

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Students who wish to take this subject must have a good theoretical and practical foundation based on manufacturing, mechanics and mathematics, among others. It is also considered positive to have passed some of the following subjects: - Production and Manufacturing Systems. - Production Systems and Manufacturing Technologies. - Graphic Expression in Engineering. - Mechanical Technology.
-Students will develop skills and acquire the necessary knowledge for the correct definition and selection of the production systems and processes necessary to obtain especially critical components. - They will develop their communication skills to communicate results and conclusions. - They will increase their ability to analytically and numerically address advanced problems inherent to new processes and production systems. - They will enhance their ability to lead, plan and supervise multidisciplinary teams. - The student will be provided with the necessary knowledge to carry out optimal designs according to the process and production system used for its manufacture.
