Politecnico di Milano via Polimi OPEN KNOWLEDGE

This course may be unavailable.


The course is part of a series of Sprint MOOC addressing the Next Production Revolution paradigma, as new wave of technological innovation. It addresses people from anywhere in the world, from industrialized economies as well as from “developing countries” and particularly from Africa.

This specific course is focused on two main clusters of the Next Production Revolution paradigma.

  • The first one is Additive Manufacturing, that is also popularly reknown as 3D printing, and refers to any process where digital 3D design data is used to build up a component by adding the material layer by layer.
  • The second one is Smart agriculture, defined as an integrated farm management framework that constitutes a holistic management approach aiming to optimize the yield per unit of farming land.

After taking this Sprint MOOC you’ll be able to define the main concepts underpinning these topics, to recognise their application fields, to identify the useful technologies and the major enabling factors affecting the decision of adopting them.
