Upon passing the exam, the student should have gained enough ownership of language, at least as far as the specific technical and chemical terminology of the teaching is concerned.
The students who have attended the course will be able to deepen their knowledge of food packaging materials, through the autonomous consultation of specialized texts, scientific or popular magazines, even outside of the topics dealt with strictly in class. The possible final seminar activities will have the aim of introducing the student to the most recent developments in terms of research in the field of materials applied to food packaging: the student should have acquired the basic knowledge and skills of the discipline to face, in the future, an autonomous deepening of these aspects.
