Type D and Type F activities

Le attività formative di tipologia D sono a scelta dello studente, quelle di tipologia F sono ulteriori conoscenze utili all’inserimento nel mondo del lavoro (tirocini, competenze trasversali, project works, ecc.). In base al Regolamento Didattico del Corso, alcune attività possono essere scelte e inserite autonomamente a libretto, altre devono essere approvate da apposita commissione per verificarne la coerenza con il piano di studio. Le attività formative di tipologia D o F possono essere ricoperte dalle seguenti attività.

1. Insegnamenti impartiti presso l'Università di Verona

Comprendono gli insegnamenti sotto riportati e/o nel Catalogo degli insegnamenti (che può essere filtrato anche per lingua di erogazione tramite la Ricerca avanzata).

Modalità di inserimento a libretto: se l'insegnamento è compreso tra quelli sottoelencati, lo studente può inserirlo autonomamente durante il periodo in cui il piano di studi è aperto; in caso contrario, lo studente deve fare richiesta alla Segreteria, inviando a carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it il modulo nel periodo indicato.

2. Attestato o equipollenza linguistica CLA

Oltre a quelle richieste dal piano di studi, per gli immatricolati dall'A.A. 2021/2022 vengono riconosciute:

  • Lingua inglese: vengono riconosciuti 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza superiore a quello richiesto dal corso di studio (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).
  • Altre lingue e italiano per stranieri: vengono riconosciuti 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza a partire da A2 (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).

Tali cfu saranno riconosciuti, fino ad un massimo di 6 cfu complessivi, di tipologia F se il piano didattico lo consente, oppure di tipologia D. Ulteriori crediti a scelta per conoscenze linguistiche potranno essere riconosciuti solo se coerenti con il progetto formativo dello studente e se adeguatamente motivati.

Gli immatricolati fino all'A.A. 2020/2021 devono consultare le informazioni che si trovano qui.

Modalità di inserimento a librettorichiedere l’attestato o l'equipollenza al CLA e inviarlo alla Segreteria Studenti - Carriere per l’inserimento dell’esame in carriera, tramite mail: carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it

Attenzione: agli studenti, che hanno conseguito il livello B2 d’inglese nelle loro carriere triennali, si sottolinea la necessità di sostituire il livello B2 d’inglese completo, previsto dal piano didattico, con il livello C1 informatizzato d’inglese oppure di acquisire altra competenza linguistica in una lingua comunitaria almeno di livello B1 completo.

3. Competenze trasversali

Scopri i percorsi formativi promossi dal TALC - Teaching and learning center dell'Ateneo, destinati agli studenti regolarmente iscritti all'anno accademico di erogazione del corso https://talc.univr.it/it/competenze-trasversali

Modalità di inserimento a libretto: non è previsto l'inserimento dell'insegnamento nel piano di studi. Solo in seguito all'ottenimento dell'Open Badge verranno automaticamente convalidati i CFU a libretto. La registrazione dei CFU in carriera non è istantanea, ma ci saranno da attendere dei tempi tecnici.  

 4. CONTAMINATION LAB

Il Contamination Lab Verona (CLab Verona) è un percorso esperienziale con moduli dedicati all'innovazione e alla cultura d'impresa che offre la possibilità di lavorare in team con studenti e studentesse di tutti i corsi di studio per risolvere sfide lanciate da aziende ed enti. Il percorso permette di ricevere 6 CFU in ambito D o F. Scopri le sfide: https://www.univr.it/clabverona

ATTENZIONE: Per essere ammessi a sostenere una qualsiasi attività didattica, incluse quelle a scelta, è necessario essere iscritti all'anno di corso in cui essa viene offerta. Si raccomanda, pertanto, ai laureandi delle sessioni di dicembre e aprile di NON svolgere attività extracurriculari del nuovo anno accademico, cui loro non risultano iscritti, essendo tali sessioni di laurea con validità riferita all'anno accademico precedente. Quindi, per attività svolte in un anno accademico cui non si è iscritti, non si potrà dar luogo a riconoscimento di CFU.

5. Periodo di stage/tirocinio

Oltre ai CFU previsti dal piano di studi (verificare attentamente quanto indicato sul Regolamento Didattico): qui informazioni su come attivare lo stage. 

Verificare nel regolamento quali attività possono essere di tipologia D e quali di tipologia F.

Learning objectives

The course is focused on the problematics and interactions among product, process, storage and packaging within the production processes of the food industry. Aim of the course is to provide the students: • basic knowledges and skills to understand how to deal with the food production problematics; • technical skills to set up and define the most appropriate technological processes and operations needed to achieve and optimize the quality characteristics of a food product; • basic knowledges about properties and characteristics of food packaging materials to select the most appropriate ones, taking into account the production process. The course comprises 5 CFU of frontal teaching and 1 CFU devoted to solving practical numerical exercises and to conducting technical visits to food production plants.

Prerequisites and basic notions

In order to attend the course, it is necessary to possess adequate competencies in mathematics, physics, general and organic chemistry, as well as microbiology and biology.

Program

- Classification of the unit operations. Dimensional analysis. Steady-state and unsteady state mass and heat transfer. Mass and energy balance. Fluid dynamics and pumps. Fundamentals of rheology. Unit operations: sedimentation, centrifugation, filtration, reverse osmosis, crystallization, evaporation, drying technology.
- Food products characteristics: safety, technical and commercial characteristic – how and why. - The practical approach to the production of a food item: row material-process-product, interaction and limits. - Food preservation, theoretical and practical approach; available technologies, potential applications and limits. - Basic elements of food packaging. - Basics of food legislation. - Detailed description of selected case-studies: - fruit and vegetable products; - eggs and egg products; - fish products - pasta, bread and bakery products; - chocolate products. The various production processes will be discussed in details with respect to food safety, commercial requirements and processing opportunities and limits. Besides the suggested books some reading material could be delivered to the students after the lessons. If possible specific seminars will be organized inviting professionals of the food industries.
Students will be guided to solve real problems of food product development that may occur in the food industry and will be guided to find practical answers by also solving numerical exercises. This will oblige the students to have a global approach to the various issues and to take care of all the possible interactions that may occur among the different components of the raw materials and the various production steps, including the packaging one. Within this frame, students will also participate in guided visits to food production plants or to factories manufacturing equipment for the food industry

Learning assessment procedures

------------------------
MM: Theory
------------------------
Oral exam - Initially the student will be asked to discuss one of the topics of the course that he considered of the utmost interest. Afterwards, the lecturer will present a practical problem that may be faced in the real working life and will evaluate how the candidate will organize and utilize the scientific and technical skills acquired during the study to highlight a possible solution to the problem. In this way the student will be oriented to study for acquiring not a mere "theoretical knowledge" but a "practical" one. The student will be graded over a score of 30 points, being 18 the minimum score to pass the exam. No different evaluation modalities are planned for students who have attended or not the theoretical and/or the practical part of the course.
------------------------
MM: Practical work
------------------------
Students are not required to take a specific exam for the practical part of the course. However, the acquired knowledge and skills will be evaluated within the oral exam set for the theoretical part of the course, taking into account the students’ capability to adapt and use in the real productive world the acquired theoretical knowledge and skills.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE

Evaluation criteria

The evaluation of the acquired knowledge and skills will be carried out taking into account not only what the student has learned, but also how he can organize in a critical manner his thinking in order to give a solution to practical problems.

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The student will be graded over a score of 30 points, being 18 the minimum score to pass the exam. No different evaluation modalities are planned for students who have attended or not the theoretical and/or the practical part of the course.

Exam language

Italiano (Italian) On a case-by-case basis, ERASMUS students might be allowed to take the exam in English
