- M.Santochi e F. Giusti, "Tecnologia meccanica e studi di fabbricazione", Editrice Ambrosiana
Assessment and grading criteria
Students are required to complete a technical report on the work developed during laboratory activities. The evaluation of the technical reports will account for 6/30.

The aim of the final exam is to verify the studentís knowledge on manufacturing processes and modern manufacturing systems.

The final exam consists of an oral exam of 3 (three) open questions and will cover all the material that was presented during lectures. The oral exam will account for 24/30.

The final mark is the sum of scores obtained from the evaluation of the technical report and the oral exam.
