Educational objectives
The module concerns the design phases of a system. In particular, the course contents refer to case studies represented by certain types of pumping station and hydroelectric plants. Students must acquire the ability for the various phases of the project, collecting and analyzing data mapping, hydrological data, use of models and software design, tendering process and in particular for public works, project management and accounting work, testing and completion of work. For all the topics developed in the classroom, the student will be exercised to the use of specific tools dedicated to professional practice.
They can be useful to the students the basic knowledge on the issues of hydraulics, hydrology, rural appraisal and accounting and cartography. If the student does not have any knowledge of these subjects is asked to notify the teacher.
