Master in Digital Advanced Manufacturing Engineering

Education objectives

DAME master''s degree aims to:

  • Prepare engineering professionals to work in the next generation of industrial environments, supported by new digital technologies, manufacturing and logistical processes.
  • Train graduates in Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Physics Engineering,  and Materials Engineering, with the competencies to meet the challenges of the digital transformation of the industry.
  • Give the skills to investigate, conceive, design, optimize, design, implement, operate, maintain, evaluate and manage advanced manufacturing systems supported by digital technology and high added value, in multidisciplinary collaboration environments in a volatile, uncertain environment and complex.

Career Opportunities

At the end of the master''s degree, students will be able to:

· Design complex work processes and methods, based on digital technology, that allow industrial companies to be more effective and efficient, and to produce goods in the defined quantity, quality, time and place and in safe conditions.
· Manage and control processes and projects for industrial technologies, automation and robotics in manufacturing, in interdisciplinary environments.
· Propose solutions for industrial technologies and automation, technically and economically competitive.
· Design, coordinate and execute projects for industrial technologies and automation.
· Develop R&D projects.
· Have an entrepreneurial spirit, be able to identify ideas and opportunities and understand the challenges of undertaking new technological projects.
· Have the capacity for critical analysis and leadership.
· Know how to work in a team and communicate effectively in a professional and academic environment.

Evaluation rules

The evaluation of all UCs is continuous for all the components that integrate it, and it must be completed by the last day of the school term of the academic semester.

The continuous evaluation of a UC must include a minimum of three elements in the set of evaluation components, on dates adequately spaced throughout the period of classes.

All UCs with a theoretical-practical evaluation component must provide, in addition, a form of evaluation of this component by exam, to be carried out after the period of classes (Examination of Appeal).

All requirements and conditions related to the evaluation of the UC, namely the minimum weights and classifications, if any, of each component, as well as the Frequency conditions, are defined a priori and, mandatorily, published in the Discipline Form.

For each UC, combinations of three evaluation components are allowed: (i) Theoretical-practical evaluation; (ii) Laboratory or project evaluation; (iii) Summative assessment.

The final Dissertation (or Project) involves a public discussion with a Jury.
