Focus on education: Mitsubishi Electric and the University of L’Aquila collaborate on an innovative academic path for Mechanical Engineering Master students

One of the responsibilities of Mitsubishi Electric is to be an active part in the training process of the young generations and this is why the Factory Automation division of the Italian branch of Mitsubishi Electric, within the AcadeMy project, has started a course with the University of L'Aquila (Univaq) with the goal of facilitating the alignment of the skills that first and second year students of the Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering acquired at University with those required today by the work world, helping them to develop a higher ability to interact with businesses in the Italian economic field.

The didactic proposal made by Univaq and Mitsubishi Electric was conceived, in particular, to aid the development of the technical skills of future engineers, through lab activities and demos with the use of specific technical equipment such as Motion Control, an integrated system of technologies and devices for motion control capable of governing extremely complex industrial processes, where increasingly high precision is required.

The first part of this course included a training proposal in e-learning, followed by a seminar and a demo session in the lab. In December, the second part of the course, dedicated to the presentation of CNC solutions applied to machine tools and EIA ISO CNC programming, will take place in December, giving continuity to the technical path undertaken by the students.
