Objectives
THE COURSE HAS THE FOLLOWING EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

DEEPEN THE KNOWLEDGE RELATED TO THE MOST RECENT TECHNOLOGICAL SOLUTIONS USED IN THE FOOD PACKAGING SECTOR WITH PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO THE STUDY OF POLYMERIC SYSTEMS WITH A HIGH ACTIVE AND PASSIVE BARRIER PROPERTIES, OF SYSTEMS WITH GREATER SUSTAINABILITY AND INTELLIGENT PACKAGING SYSTEMS.

PROVIDE THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL SKILLS ON THE TECHNIQUES OF CHARACTERIZATION OF UNCONVENTIONAL PACKAGING SYSTEMS AND ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW PACKAGING TECHNOLOGIES IN PRODUCTION PROCESSES.

FOCUS ON ASPECTS RELATED TO THE SAFETY ISSUE OF FOOD CONTACT OF NEW MATERIALS USED IN THE PACKAGING FIELD.

ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE AND IDENTIFY THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONALITIES OF ACTIVE AND INTELLIGENT PACKAGING, AND TO IDENTIFY THE TECHNIQUES FOR THEIR MANUFACTURING.

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING ABILITY APPLIED - ENGINEERING DESIGN:
ABILITY TO DESIGN COMPLEX SYSTEMS CONSISTING OF DIFFERENT MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR APPLICATIONS IN THE FOOD PACKAGING FIELD.


AUTONOMY OF JUDGMENT - ENGINEERING PRACTICE:
ABILITY TO CORRECTLY APPLY THE RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF FOOD CONTACT PACKAGING.

TRANSVERSAL SKILLS - COMMUNICATION SKILLS:
ABILITY TO ORALLY PRESENT, WITH APPROPRIATE TERMINOLOGY, A TOPIC CONCERNING THE TECHNOLOGICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR FOOD PACKAGING IN COMPLIANCE WITH EU AND NATIONAL REGULATIONS AND IN RELATION TO SPECIFIC APPLICATIONS.


TRANSVERSAL SKILLS - LEARNING SKILLS:
ABILITY TO COMBINE THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE, ALSO BY CARRYING OUT CASE STUDIES AND PROJECT WORK. ABILITY TO APPLY THE ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE ALSO FOR SPECIFIC APPLICATIONS OTHER THAN THOSE PRESENTED IN THE COURSE AND ABILITY TO REFINE AND EXPAND ONE'S KNOWLEDGE.

TRANSVERSAL CAPACITIES - SURVEY CAPACITY:
ABILITY TO IDENTIFY THE PECULIARITIES OF A PACKAGING SYSTEM AND TO DEFINE THE MOST APPROPRIATE METHODS FOR FUNCTIONAL VERIFICATION OF MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGIES.


Prerequisites
STUDENTS MUST POSSESS THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS RELATED TO THE FUNDAMENTALS OF FOOD PACKAGING. THESE SKILLS ARE ACQUIRED WITH THE "FOOD PACKAGING" COURSE

Teaching Methods
THE COURSE IS STRUCTURED INTO THEORETICAL LECTURES AND EXERCISES BOTH IN THE CLASSROOM AND LABORATORY.
PRACTICAL PROBLEMS WILL BE PROPOSED IN THE FIELD OF THE ANALYSIS OF MATERIALS. LABORATORY EXPERIENCES WILL STRENGTHEN THE CONCEPTS ACQUIRED.
LECTURES ARE PROVIDED IN CLASSES IN THE PRESENCE OF STUDENTS.
IN PARTICULAR, THE COURSE IS STRUCTURED IN 40 HOURS OF THEORY, 10 HOURS OF EXERCISES HELD IN THE CLASSROOM, 10 HOURS OF LABORATORY PRACTICE..


ATTENDANCE AT THE LECTURES IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED
Verification of learning
THE SKILLS AND THE LEARNING OF THE COURSE CONTENTS WILL BE VERIFIED THROUGH AN INTERVIEW. THE INTERVIEW WILL TAKE PLACE IN ENGLISH. STUDENTS WILL BE ASSESSED ON THE BASIS OF THEIR ABILITY TO PRESENT THE CONTENTS BY ADDRESSING THE QUESTIONS AND THE PROBLEMS PROPOSED DURING THE INTERVIEW. THE BASICS ASPECTS AND THE TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE TOPICS PRESENTED DURING THE COURSE WILL BE CONSIDERED ESSENTIAL TO PASS THE EXAM. EXCELLENCE WILL BE ACHIEVED IF THE STUDENT PROVES TO BE ABLE TO TACKLE AND SOLVE NON-STANDARD PROBLEMS BY PUTTING IN PLACE THE ABILITY TO SYNTHESIZE AND CORRELATE THE TOPICS DISCUSSED TOGETHER WITH THE LANGUAGE PROPERTIES.
