The university manages the Giuriati Sports Centre and its facilities, which are open to Politecnico staff and students as well as all citizens of the community.
An initiative developed at the CST Laboratory of the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering. NECSTCamp has the specific aim of improving self-confidence and self-awareness in both students and staff, boosting their fear and stress management abilities through training activities.
Examples of teaching activities
BIOMATERIALI PER DISPOSITIVI PROTESICI [BIOMATERIALS FOR PROSTHETIC DEVICES]
The aim of the course is to provide the basis for expanding knowledge in the field of materials used for the manufacture of prosthetic medical devices and to learn about the status and regulations underlying the relevant market sector, which is currently of strategic and social importance and is expanding rapidly. For the student, the aim is to acquire the necessary knowledge to be able, in the near future, to interface with the sectors of those who propose, design and use medical devices.
This course is delivered in the following Degree Programmes:
- Design del prodotto industriale [Product Design] (BSc)
