    Professional Courses of the Genoa University for Industries and Companies

    The Cooperation between Confindustria, Professional Engineering Society, Genoa University, Industrial Plant Industries and Engineering Companies allowed to develop the innovativethe MIPET Program to excel in Industrial Plant Engineering and Technologies.

      The evolution in Industrial Plant Engineering requires constant updating and continuous training of qualified personnel, in this context Genoa University developed the MIPET Professional Modules that represent an important element of MIPET (Master on Industrial Plant Engineering & Technologies - www.itim.unige.it/ mipet); MIPET is organized by the Polytechnic School - Engineering Faculty of Genoa University in collaboration with numerous companies operating in this sector (i.e. ABB, Bombardier, Danieli Centro Combustion, Paul Wurth, Tenova) and Confindustria and the Society of Professional Engineers. The proposed modules are open to engineers and company technicians, and are defined as Operative Modules; each Operative Module is focused on a specific topic: Project Management, Constructions, Standards & Regulations, Safety & Risks, Communication and Team Working, R&D, Plant Simulation; each Operative Module is characterized by a duration of 35 hours organized over an intensive week of lectures, tutorials, case studies, simulations and Role Play Games; the Instructors are a mix of Academics and Engineering Experts and all the lectures are in English; the attendees will receive all the support material; currently these Modules are already scheduled, however, on the basis of the received applications further editions could be organized, even in Italian if requested. Companies and individuals are entitled to register and participate by filling out the MIPET Operative Course Form and sending it to MIPET (mipet@simulationteam.com); a special fee is reserved for employers of companies associated Confidustria and/or engineers members of the Professional Engineering Society (Ordine degli Ingegneri); in addition, this year it will be possible for MIPET Sponsor Companies & Institutions to register participants even on MIPET Thematic Modules. Students enrolled in MIPET Master don't have to pay any registration to attende the Operative and Thematic Modules being integral part of the Master Program. In addition this year, Operative and Thematic Module could be available also in video streaming for remote attendees including blended education solutions for supporting virtual experience and interactive Role Play Games and Simulation.
