The Master of Science in Digital Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (DAME) is offered by NOVA School of Science and Technology | FCT NOVA in close partnership with the industry community.
DAME master's degree will train engineering professionals with a multidisciplinary vision of the industry of the future. It is built around the concepts of smart and intelligent manufacturing (I4.0), supported by new digital technologies, manufacturing and logistics processes.
DAME master's degree aims to:
The Master in Advanced Digital Fabrication Engineering is intended for holders of a bachelor's degree or legal equivalent in areas of Engineering or Engineering Sciences in general, who want to leverage skills for the new challenges of the Digital Age in industry and research and development (R&D).
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.
The duration of the master's degree is 2 academic years (4 semesters) with a total of 120 ECTS. The Syllabus involves complementary courses in the scientific areas of Engineering and Industrial Management (40%), Mechanical Engineering (30%), Electrical and Computer Engineering (18%) and Computer Science (12%).
In the 1st and 2nd semesters there are 12 compulsory courses and 1 optional course, in a total of 60 ECTS. In this first academic year, the curricular component takes place in person on the NOVA SST campus.
In the 3rd semester, there are 5 courses and an industrial project to be developed in a company, totaling 30 ECTS. This semester will have a module configuration, in which part of the semester will take place in an industrial environment.
In the 4th semester, students can choose between a scientific dissertation or an industrial project, totaling 30 ECTS, to be developed in a research center or business environment.
The Master will be taught in English.
