For its second edition, the 2nd Level University Master's Degree Course in High Apprenticeship in Railways Mobility Industry: Train 4 me will start in January 2023 and will last two years. The aim of this course is to provide training support for graduate apprentices who wish to deepen their knowledge in the railway vehicles for passengers, with particular attention to regulatory, safety and Eco-Design aspects. This Master's course will provide the necessary skills for engineers and engineers to gain a broad view of the entire design and production process of a railway vehicle, with the relevant economic impact assessments, the planning of the design, the manufacturing process, the analysis of the production process and the management of the vehicle during operation.
The first edition (a.y. 2018-2019) provided a total of 1,500 hours of training, more than 650 of which were classroom-based, the remainder in project (550 hours) and self-learning (300 hours) activities. Each student developed a final project work for the Master's degree. For one of these projects, related to energy design, a patent was filed.
