SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TECHNIQUES IN INDUSTRIAL ENVIRONMENT
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The aim of the course is to introduce students to the issues and techniques related to the programming of software applications in the industrial field, with an in-depth analysis of the main .NET / C # development techniques and software version control. The course also intends to provide students with basic skills on Digital Factory issues and experiences.
It is assumed that the student has acquired basic skills on object-oriented programming and is familiar with the C ++ language.
Course contents summary
The course is divided into a set of lectures and exercises related to programming techniques in an industrial environment, including .NET/C# technologies, and a set of seminars devoted to industrial application cases and subject matters related to the Digital Factory and Industry 4.0:
