Learning objectives
The course provides knowledge of the functional schemes of the main enological machines used in the winery and of the main laws and regulations of the plant sector. Moreover, the course provides sizing criteria for enology plants and equipment, and it aims to acquire analysis methods for simple and complex plants.
The course provides a solid preparation on the basic principles of the agricultural mechanization and a detailed knowledge of the machinery and working operations carried out in viticulture, also thanks to several theoretical and practical examples of tractors and implements dimensioning. Particular importance is also paid to the operators' safety and comfort when working with machinery in viticulture.
Expected learning outcomes
Acquisition of technical language skills and technical terminology.
Skills in devising, design and manage production systems and processes related to the wine industry;
Ability to perform economic and functional analyses of different technical solutions along the wine production chain, and to conduct production lines for wine industries, optimizing functionality and sustainability.
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.
