OVERVIEW

The training is based on an analysis of general feasibility That allows to define , through PHASES diversified , Elements Useful to Design , Construction and Operation of the system . The course aims to provide students Mechanical Engineers The conceptual aspects to study , Planning and managing THESE systems through a systemic approach , techniques and methods widely used in industry.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Creating base for industrial plants engineer able to integrate designing and economics-management aspects over the entire lifecycle of complex plants. Thus the learning process is based on general feasibility studies allowing to define, through different phases, useful elements for designing, construction and operation of the system. The course aims to provide the mechanical engineering students a systemic approach, techniques and methodologies widely adopted in industrial context.

Teaching methods

Lessons on powerpoint presentations in Italian/English language. Course book.
