Learning objectives
Unit 1: To know the principal plant' law and standard; to acquire criteria for the dimension of plants and machineries for oenology; to know the main oenological machines; to acquire analysis methodology for complex and simple plants.
Unit 2: The student will be able to get a high level of knowledge about the main notions of agricultural mechanics, with detailed information on the machinery used and the mechanized tasks carried out in vineyards, including several theoretical and practical applications concerning the correct coupling tractor-implement. The safety and the comfort relevant to the use of machinery in vineyards are also suitably emphasized.
Expected learning outcomes
Unit 1: Acquisition of linguistic and technical terms competences. To design and manage productive system and complex processes for the wineries; to make economical and functional analysis of technical alternative solutions; to run the production in winery to obtain optimum conditions.
Unit 2: The student acquires the ability for structuring and dimensioning (if not yet existing) or for verifying the congruity (if already working) of the winery machinery, considering the extension, the breeding techniques, the pedo-climatic conditions and the main agronomic goals.
