Paper, print media and biomaterials
Learning outcomes :
Knowledge of the finishing and transformation processes of materials allowing the development of products with specific functionality in a sector of activity ranging from cardboard to printed electronics.
Preparation of summary documents from scientific and technical publications distributed by the teacher.
Students work in groups on a problem based on a folder, distributed by the teacher, consisting of numerous technical and scientific documents, mainly in English.
After reading and summarising the publications distributed and with the technical and scientific support of the teacher, a first review is carried out in order to propose the outline of the summary document to be produced.
The document (15 to 20 pages) is then developed from the specifications provided by the teacher during the first session.
courses of first year at Pagora (english, Fibre and biomaterials fundamentals, Processes for printing industry)
The evaluation is based on :
report (group work)
personnal investisment (personnal work)
oral presentation (group work)
Note : 50% rapport + 30% restitution orale + 20% Implication individuelle
The course exists in the following branches:
Selon les thèmes abordés, les dossiers techniques sont constitués de plusieurs documents scientifiques et techniques qui constituent la bibliographie.
Exemple : pour le Thème 'couchage rideaux' les reférences bibliographiques sont :
