Horizontal competencies aim at developing a deep awareness and a basic knowledge on topics that are increasingly important for the engineer profession and have no place in the traditional curriculum: for example, law and criminal liabilities of the engineer, ergonomics and occupational health, copyright and intellectual property, technical communication, etc.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
The student is expected to acquire knowledge and understanding of aspects which are strictly related to an engineer career, even if they are not usual disciplines studied in engineering courses. Furthermore, the study of topics which are somehow not traditional for an engineer will help the student in developing his/her capability of focusing on different types of disciplines and thus his/her learning skills.
this course organises several thematic workshops that are scheduled in the mid-term break periods.The arguments are e.g. law and criminal liabilities of the engineer, ergonomics and occupational health, copyright and intellectual property, technical communication, etc.
Each module consists of a 4-hour workshop, which will be followed by recommended reading useful to pass the test. The 2 credits will be given after acquiring at least 4 modules (you can also attend other modules, according to your interest).
Workshop schedule is updated regularly and is published in the relative BEEP page.
Workshops may be also attended in different semesters.
Workshop admission is reserved to students with at least 49 ECTS credits.
Further information are available on BEEP (i.e. FAQs).
