This Master is a specialization in the modern techniques of Computer Aided Integrated Design and Manufacturing. Today manufacturing is not conceived without the use of these technologies, so its contents will be directly applicable to the future professional activity of the student. The knowledge transmitted in this Master must allow the student to go through all the stages of the product's life cycle, from conceptual design to manufacturing and recycling.
The Master provides knowledge in: design and geometric modeling; simulation and analysis of behavior in parts, products and processes; manufacturing planning; transport, storage, handling, processing and inspection techniques; Product Lifecycle Management; as well as other subjects and methodologies included or related to integrated manufacturing. All this, based on the subjects taken by the student and the final master's project (TFM) carried out.
The main objective of the Master's Degree in Computer-Aided Integrated Design and Manufacturing is to project its students professionally by putting into practice the theoretical/practical knowledge acquired. The ideal path is the internship in Business and the TFM which, in a large number of cases, materializes in the resolution of real problems in some of the sectors of our industrial environment.
The Master's internships are compulsory and will be carried out in a company at the request of the student with which the UPV must sign an agreement. The ETSID has the Sub-directorate of Relations with the Company for the collaboration in the search and selection of companies.
The TFM can be done in an industrial or academic environment. In both cases there is the possibility that it be done in companies, research institutes or universities, both national and foreign. In any case, it trains the student and is the perfect setting for starting doctoral studies in the Design, Manufacturing and Management of Industrial Projects program.
As this title is professional and instrumental in nature, students who have completed any of the degrees indicated below will be able to access it:
- Degrees in Mechanical Engineering (GIM), in Industrial Technologies (GITI), Industrial and Automatic Electronics (GIEIA), Aerospace (GIA) and others similar to the above.
- Degrees in Product Design and Development Engineering (GIDDP), Chemistry (GIQ) and Electrical (GIE); Degree in Computer, Materials or Industrial Organization Engineering; Topography and others similar to the previous ones.
