Applied Mechanics (6 ECTS)
In this subject the basic principles of strength of materials and mechanisms are studied. On one hand, strength of materials studies the loads that a structural system supports, in order to check the correct behavior on the strain and possible fractures in that structure. On the other hand, mechanisms are basic for the correct work of machines, that transmit forces and movement, that is, power (e.g. the engine of a car) to the link consuming that power (e.g. the wheels in the car).
Fundamentals of Materials Sciences
The mechanical properties of materials, their different families and their industrial applications are studied. Students become familiar with the different materials and the ideal manufacturing method for product design. They study the relationship between the structure, properties and processing of materials, which determine their behavior and applications.

Control Systems (6 ECTS)
Engineers must acquire, among others, the ability to use automation techniques and control of industrial processes that allow them to properly perform the functions of operation and maintenance of automated facilities and the proposal of solutions for the automation and control of small and medium installations.
Production Management (6 ECTS)
This subject provides detailed content about how production and services are managed in a company. A hierarchical approach, at three levels, is introduced : strategic, tactical and operational. Specifically, this subject will address the study and application of demand forecasting techniques, generation of aggregate plans, master and materials plans, as well as capacity plans and production programs.
Thermal Engineering (6 ECTS)
One of competences engineers must command the design and analysis of thermal and hydraulic machines and heat exchange systems. For this reason, this subject studies methods for heat exchange system calculations, presents different models to analyze in terms of thermodynamics both rotating and positive reciprocating thermal machines and develops different constructive aspects of these machines.
Integrated Production Systems (6 ECTS)
In this subject, applied knowledge of manufacturing systems and processes, metrology and quality control are going to be developed. The increasing complexity of technologies encourage students to integrate design tools (Computed Aided Design, CAD) into their future professional activity, together with calculation tools (Computer Aided Engineering, CAE) and machining simulation tools (Computer Aided Manufacturing and Computer Numerical Control, CAM-CNC). The aim of this subject is the improvement and optimization of manufacturing processes, providing students with applied knowledge of manufacturing processes of industrial products. This includes the different steps that are followed to reach the final product from conceptual design, as well as the integration of CAD/CAM-CNC/CAE tools in this process, the quality control and statistical control, always according to a previous planification.
