Teaching methods

Lessons and exercises: The course includes theoretical lessons in the classroom and exercises with the electronic calculator in the computer lab. The exercises include the design and implementation of the controller and its computer simulation. Methods for working students: working students who cannot attend classes must communicate this to the teacher to receive specific indications on the topics to be studied on the recommended textbooks and teaching materials. Office hours: By appointment requested by e-mail addressed to: daniele.caltabiano@tetrapak.com All the lessons are provided in italian

Assessment methods

The student is offered an exercise to perform before going to the exam. The student will present himself with the solution that will be discussed during the exam, also through the preparation of a descriptive document. The discussion will be followed by an interview on the program carried out in class to verify the student's level of knowledge. The exercise is weighted 50% for the final grade while the oral part related with the theoretical part is weighted 50% as well

Learning outcomes

The learning objectives expected following the completion of the course and passing the related exam are the following:
Knowledge and understanding: The student will have the ability to understand and analyze digital control systems for industrial systems and machines.
Ability to apply knowledge and understanding: The student will have developed the ability to solve design problems and implementation of control systems for industrial systems and machines.
Autonomy of judgment: The student will have developed the ability to independently choose the methods of analysis and solution of problems relating to the topics addressed in the course.
Communication skills: The student will have developed the ability to clearly, rigorously and concisely present the concepts addressed in the course.
Learning skills: The student will have developed the ability to independently deepen some collateral aspects of the topics proposed in the course.
