Why choose a short course:

  • The teachers are either university teachers, industry experts and technologists who share a common experience both in industrial design and training, able to offer a qualified contribution and their important point of view to a uniform and coordinated program;
  • The didactic material, expressly realized for the courses (even in case of training pilot projects financed by European Community or National Agencies) and organized in a shared and homogenous way;
  • The programs’ coordination, global and for each subject;
  • The chance of resorting to distance learning;
  • The samples presented, taken from the daily practice of industrial design;
  • The certification to participants, which follows the international scheme of certified analyst suggested by NAFEMS;
  • The continuous improvement of efficacy and efficiency by customizing the courses on the base of the company QA.

Course Level

  • Basic course: the arguments are introduced in their global aspects (letter B in the course code);
  • Advanced course: the arguments are presented in depth even if in a general way yet; this level is to be considered as the natural continuation of the basic course, which is then perceived as a pre-requisite (letter A);
  • Specialized course: some specific aspects are presented in detail (letter S);
  • Technological course: the arguments are presented with reference to some specific software technology (letter T).

Course typology

  • Theoretical course: the arguments are debated in their theory(letter T);
  • Application Course: the arguments are presented with precise reference to applications (A);
  • Hands on course: part of the training is on computer sessions and it considers the use of commercial calculus codes.
