Knowledge and understanding: Through lectures, seminars, educational visits and experimental labs, the student
will learn the design of structural elements of fiber-reinforced composites applied to the automotive field.
Applying knowledge and understanding: Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to apply
his/her knowledge to the selection of constituent phases (matrix and fiber), processing technology and to apply the
basic rules and tools to design composite material structures.
Making judgments: Through written reports and open presentation of the assignments and lab activities, the student
will be able to understand, discuss collectively and critically, as well as to expose, the results obtained.
Communication skills: Written reports improve the ability of presenting experimental data and general understanding
in an effective and concise way; group presentations allow to express the acquired concepts with an appropriate
language and to hold a discussion about the course topics.
Learning skills: the activities described so far, allow the students to acquire the methodological tools that are
necessary to continue their educational career and to become familiar with the ever-continuing update on scientific
achievements that is required in cutting-edge technological fields.
