Art. 4 - Criteria, requirements, characteristics and organization of the telematic didactical structures

  1. The definition of criteria and requirements is fundamental and necessary to the activation of the telematic didactical structures in order to satisfy the educational needs of the users, so that - together with the educational success - the achievement of the final goal and results, that is the acquisition and the certification of the skills and the educational credit, and the achievement of the title of study within the lapse of time established by the course of study can be granted to them.
  2. The Technological platform offers to students, tutors, teachers, administrators, the maximum flexibility and completeness in the management of each activity needed to the delivery of distance courses of study, from the moment of the start up of a course and the storage of the didactical contents, to that of the real delivery of the course, of the students' activity monitoring, to that of the administrative proceeding for enrolment and the request of documents. The system offers not only a choice of organized didactical contents (Learning Content System and Learning Object), and also a series of services aimed at assuring interactivity and participation to the process of teaching and learning.
  3. The system allows a very high level of flexibility and customization of the different courses of study, for all the levels of users (student, teacher, tutor), and it has as its aim the creation of en environment of collaborative and "social" learning thanks to the tools of communication and the implemented system of management of groups of students.
  4. The educational activities and the related didactical supporting materials , their usability and the technological structures of the platform are synthesized as follows:
    1. Content Aggregation System
      This is the system of meta-dating, aggregation and packaging of the courses which will be delivered. Based on international standard SCORM 1.2 specifications, and designed with graphic interfaces which allow their use to not highly computer-literate users, the system makes it possible to list, meta-date, manage, group and indexing the different Learning Objects according to paths established by the didactical committees, independently from the kind and format of these Objects (text, images, MS Office documents, Adobe PDF documents, animations, audio or video materials, etc). Besides of allowing the creation of "didactical units" made up of several Learning Objects, and as a consequence also of entire courses made up of several didactical units, the use of (XML) descriptive languages and of (SCORM) shared dictionaries makes possible to re-use the didactical units, and also separate Learning Objects at a minimum level of granularity, both inside the platform itself (re-usability) and on third platforms designed according to the international standards (interoperability).

       
    2. Learning Content Management System
      This is the module aimed at the delivery of the courses according to the rules (data model) centered on separate lessons and separate courses in the phase of packaging and authoring which also allows the management and the control of the didactical-educational activity on the single students, on the study planning, on the didactic schedules, by teachers and tutors.
      This module offers the student the possibility of tailoring his/her study: on one side, this offers flexibility and a continuous customization according to the choices of each single student; on the other side, it shows an adaptive capacity as far as the real timing, modalities, styles of usability of the delivered material by any single student are concerned.
      Thanks to the tracebility of the activities of each single student and of the classes for students that will be organized, Tutors and Teachers will be able to follow and update their didactical curriculum, to control the timing of access to the platform and to the separate materials, managing evaluation and self-evaluation in itinere of the progress achieved, and having at their disposal analysis report of the real participation to the group activities programmed.

       
    3. Web Publishing System
      This module is aimed at "translating" the inputs coming from LCMS so that they can be used through the web. A great attention has been paid to matters of usability: the generated code is validated according to the W3C standard, while contents and representation of the same are managed separately through style formats optimized according to the tool used (personal computer, web TV, mobile phone, printed formats). More advanced multimedia contents are published in various versions, in order to reach the possibly greatest basin of users.
      The accessibility to the platform for disadvantaged categories of users is granted through the implementation of W3C (WCAG, WAI guidelines) specifications on the delivery of web services for disabled people, and in compliance with the guidelines and the recommendations of the European Union and the national provisions.

       
    4. Communication Tools
      For the creation of a social context on the web, and to stimulate students towards modalities of collaborative learning, a great attention has been given to the systems of communication offered. The organization of Chat (also audio and video) and Forum allows both a free exchange student/student in dedicated environments, and the creation of thematic rooms that can be managed by tutors and teachers, through systems of moderation, and automatic tools for the quantitative analysis of the interactions of each single student in the various environments. Tutors and teachers are also given the possibility of recording evaluations on the quality of the interactions of each single student and of classes of students, and not only their quantity. Further tools made available are a personal system of Weblog, and a system of web instant messaging among the online users.

       
    5. Virtual Class
      The virtual class is realized through systems of video-communication through videoconference links, and video-chats. The virtual class allows the sharing of applications, shared whiteboard, didactical interaction Tutor/Teacher, supply of tests, in itinere evaluation of the learning process. With the activation of the online Agenda, Tutors and Teachers can plan meeting of support, integrative seminars, synchronic sessions of verification, all the online activities are recorded on web so that they can be made available to all the students and can enrich the available Learning Object heritage.

       
    6. Ways of tutoring
      Through the systems of communication implemented, the environment "Virtual class" and the administration of the Online Agenda, the Tutor / Teacher has the possibility of following up the students showing periodically the contents to be studied more in depth to respect the expiry dates shown at the beginning of the course; of proposing and evaluating online papers /tests/ exams both synchronic and asynchronic scheduled in the agenda.
      Apart from following the student in his/her educational path, Tutors and Teachers are given the possibility of creating and managing groups of students, in order to allow a work with "classes". The system manages the "class" giving an online calendar-agenda taking note of dates and works to be done, of a final working area and exchange files to manage group projects, chats, forums and video-chats of the different classes.

       
    7. Online administrative activity
      This module allows the student to enrol fully online, even paying the enrolment fees, in full security due to the adoption of the security protocols for online transactions and the "coding" of the personal data. The system allows to store, download and print files on the academic career of each single student, make requests to the secretariat, enrol into an examination, record, evaluate and approve customized variations to the study programmes.

       
    8. Technological solutions
      The platform is organized upon a computer-based network devoted each to a single specific service, according to an architecture that promotes the redundancy of servers to prevent any possible failure of the system. Other services, such as the storage of didactical material (Learning Object Repository), the supply of information through the web, the supply of video on request, the management of economical transfers and of confidential data are managed on different hardware. A system of management of the band fully scalable grants immediate answers, canceling the risks of failure on confidential operations, and adapting itself to the tremendous amount of requests arriving to the server at the same time.

DIDACTIC REGULATIONS

The International Telematic University “Uninettuno”

Course name:

CIVIL ENGINEERING

Class 08:

University degrees in civil and environmental engineering

Delivery mode

Distance mode


Specific educational objectives
 

Civil Engineering deals namely with civil constructions and infrastructures. The first ones include buildings, civil constructions involved in industrial buildings and big works such as bridges, viaducts, galleries, dams etc The latter ones deal with road network infrastructures (roads, railways, airports and modal exchange junctions) and hydraulic infrastructures (aqueducts, lifting equipment and water distribution networks, sewerage systems, coastal works, hydraulic defence works). Furthermore, Civil Engineering faces specific interdisciplinary issues aimed at solving some problems related to planning, operation and functioning of transportation networks present on the territory.

The Civil Engineer is responsible for both the design and the activities related to the realisation and management- during the operational phase- of works and infrastructures, in order to assure their functionality and safety. The training of university graduate in Civil Engineering is based upon an adequate knowledge of the contents of basic sciences and engineering (theoretical and applied), paying particular attention to those having an impact from a civil viewpoint: Science and Techniques of Constructions, Geotechnics, Hydraulics and Hydraulic Works, Road Networks Infrastructures and Transportations. Other basic engineering disciplines (Technical Architecture, Design, Electrotechnics, Technical Physics and Topography), besides vocational disciplines (economic and legal-evaluative) complete his training. The choice of a fully fledged didactic offer, during a three-year period, largely involving all those sectors that traditionally characterise the Civil Engineer, guarantees the training of a professional profile able to identify, analyse and solve typical problems occurring in Civil Engineering, thus guaranteeing at the same time the possibility of further in-depth studies and specialisation programs needed to face complex and system-based problems.

At the end of the three-year period, the University Degree course in Civil Engineering assures the obtainment of a University Degree following a unified education path.
This path allows to access, with no educational debits, all Specialising University Degrees in Civil Engineering. It offers a training based on the scientific rigueur of the physical-mathematic disciplines, on the theoretical principles of the engineering sciences and the methodological approach of the applied engineering disciplines characterising the entire civil sector. The title is undifferentiated.
The strong presence of disciplines applicable to the design phase, besides the acquisition of specific professional knowledge, allow the engineer to obtain skills which are directly “usable” in the labour market, both in the self-employment sector and in the recruitment of technical profiles (executives or managerial staff) in the production structures or in the Public Administration. In fact, the envisaged design applications offer the opportunity to assimilate concepts and develop relational and decision-making skills. The type of envisaged training, widely aimed at guaranteeing the graduate an adequate mastery of the general scientific methods and contents is well-suited for continuing the study cycle to get a specialising university degree, with no training debits; in any case it supplies the skills for an easy and effective learning through individual study or other training activities (university masters, continuing education, etc.). The study course can also be formulated according to further curricula, that, within the envisaged training objectives, allow for a diversified professional training. The University Degree in Civil Engineering aims at training professional profiles able to:
 

  • Translate the basic theoretical principles of the different disciplines in professional applications related to their competence field, using methods, techniques and tools that are suited to the specific situations;
  • Face and solve, in common situations, problems linked to design, realisation and management of civil works and infrastructures;
  • Know and being able to use criteria linked to safety, operativeness, socio-economic and environmental impact in the design and execution of the civil works and infrastructures related to the competence field;
  • Identify the basic problems of the transportation system as it regards the mutual interaction between supply and demand;
  • Manage projects and programmes for the operation, maintenance, updating, restructuring and divestment of buildings;
  • Make experiments, analyse and interpret the related data;
  • Be aware of one’s own professional responsibilities and ethics;
  • Have a knowledge of the business environment and the company culture as it regards its economic, managerial and organisational aspects;
  • Get decision-making and relational skills;
  • Have basic tools to continuously update one’s own knowledge.

Skills required for the admission (art.6 D.M. 509/99)

In order to be admitted to the University Degrees in Engineering, in general, the students should possess the following qualifications:

  • Basic scientific knowledge;
  • Oral comprehension skills;
  • Aptitude towards a methodological approach.

The importance of the last two points is to be particularly highlighted (oral comprehension skills, aptitude to a method-based approach), also compared to the basic scientific skills. The lack of acquisition of some basic scientific notions during the school period- due to their absence in the study programmes- is not an obstacle for the admission to the engineering study courses, particularly when the oral comprehension skills and aptitudes towards a methodological approach are good; whereas the fact that they had already been acquired does not eliminate the need for a more detailed and careful study.
However, the essential qualification for the student’ admission to the University Degree Courses in Engineering is the basic knowledge of specific subjects, namely maths. The assessment of the students’ qualifications, to be admitted to the University Degree courses, should have the lack or presence of this qualification as discriminating factor.
 

Specifications of the final exam

The final exam will consist in the preparation of a short paper dealing with one of the disciplines followed by the student or a project consistent with the candidate’s professional activity that will be assessed by a commission composed of 5 professors.

Employment sectors for graduates

By tradition, the Civil Engineer has always distinguished himself for being a freelancer. Similarly, the new profile of the graduate in Civil Engineering will be able to keep this characteristic, according to his skill-levels, besides the possibility of finding opportunities as technical employee.
In this regard, the following sectors and activities can be envisaged:
 

  • Design sector, that is activities related to the design of civil works and their adjustment to the changing scenarios of the demand (design, calculation, accountancy, etc.);
  • Realisation sector, where professional profiles such as Building Site Engineer, Works Engineer and Inspector of public and private works work
  • Management sector, with particular attention to the functions of the Coordinator for the execution of the works, according to what is envisaged by the regulations in force as it regards safety in building sites;
  • Working as employee of public and private companies active in the sector of construction, maintenance and management of industrial plants, works and civil infrastructures;
  • Performing activities that are preliminary to planning and scheduling of transportation networks, organisation of services and carrying out of interventions in the re-engineering of vehicle traffic;
  • Working as employee of professional firms and companies dealing with the design of works, plants and infrastructures;
  • Working as employee of State Agencies and Administrations being responsible for designing, planning, managing and controlling urban and territorial systems;
  • Working as employee of Companies, Boards, Consortia and Agency that manage and control systems of works and services in the civil sector;

Class of the university degree courses in information engineering

Delivery mode

Distance mode

Specific educational objectives

The computer science engineer knows the functioning of complex systems characterising both the information society and the operational and design principles and paradigms of systems for the processing of information. He can therefore assess the impact of the proposed solutions from an economic and social viewpoint.

Computer science engineer has deep methodological and practical skills. Therefore, he owns the basic knowledge tools for an ongoing updating, also through individual commitment, and can contribute to the design of innovative solutions thus assessing and solving problems that might be encountered during the implementation of information systems. In addition, he masters basic sciences (mathematics, physics, chemistry) and engineering sciences, thus being able to interact with specialists of every field of engineering as well as economic-managerial area, namely other professional profiles of the information science sector.

The Degree in Computer Science Engineering aims at supplying the following professional skills:

  • Capability to define the specifications of a project and coordinate the realisation of the applications that make use of consolidated information methodologies and tools;
  • Capability to design and develop dedicated applications, also in cooperation with other professional profiles;
  • Capability to manage and maintain information application identifying, scaling or managing architectures and plants using consolidated technologies;
  • Capacity to interact during the design, development and maintenance of decision-making support systems, also in cooperation with other professional profiles;
  • Capability to implement technological innovations, in the sector of Information Engineering, to train staff, participate in R&D groups in the information industry and contribute to basic training in the information sector.

This curriculum is based upon the belief that, in order to train a good computer science engineer, it is necessary to acquire a good basic cultural background and a good knowledge of the engineering disciplines, specific computer science knowledge and an appropriate practice activity.

A basic cultural background and a knowledge of the engineering disciplines, rather than a sophisticated specialisation in rapidly-obsolescing technologies and applications, allows to get used to the fast-changing technological evolution. Essential knowledge on engineering disciplines should mainly focus on the information, electronic, telecommunications, automatics fields that are today the “basic engineering” such as applied mechanics and thermodynamics. To acquire a suitable experience in the use of information tools, what is envisaged is the acquisition of an appropriate number of educational credits to be acquired in laboratory sessions, computer science courses and with specific project activities. In particular, to get a university degree it is necessary to attend two “project” modules in the computer science sector. Further practice work will be carried out during the apprenticeship period and while preparing for the final exam.

Skills required for the admission (art.6 D.M. 509/99)

The student who intends to successfully attend this University Degree course should have a skill-level that assures his ability to understand texts and re-formulate the relative content; the capability to make abstractions and the aptitude to a methodological approach as well as basic scientific knowledge with particular reference to the following mathematical subjects: numerical structures, arithmetic, logarithms and their proprieties, elementary algebra, equations and inequalities, Euclidean geometry, proprieties of the plane figures, Cartesian coordinates, trigonometry, successions and functions; arithmetical and geometrical progressions, proprieties of some elementary functions (powers, logarithms, exponential, trigonometric functions).

Specifications of the final exam

The final exam will consist in the preparation of a short paper dealing with one of the disciplines attended by the student or in a project consistent with the candidate’s professional activity that will be assessed by a commission composed of 5 professors..

Employment sectors for the graduates

The profession of the computer science engineering has great importance at social level and a significant economic-industrial impact. The professional opportunities for the computer science engineer are represented by companies, agencies and boards (public administration, finance, industry, commerce etc.) that supply services using systems to process information, that make use of information products in production processes or that realise products that include information components.

Some specific professional profiles are listed below, structured according to the different fields:

University degrees in industrial engineering

Delivery mode

Distance mode

Specific educational objectives

Management Engineering is involved in solving problems of technical, economic, management and organisational nature related to the production and use of goods and/or services using problem-solving methods and capabilities typical of engineering. In carrying out his activity, the management engineer uses quantitative tools, decision-making support systems and methodological accuracy typical of the engineering sciences aiming at getting to optimising solutions. The engineering perspective and method applied to management and organisation problems allow to get higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness of the solutions, contribute to a better understanding of the companies events, facilitate the identification and control of the main decision-making variables of the company processes, lay the foundations for a continuous enhancement of the company results on measurable parameters and, at last, allow the creation of well-structured relationships among the different company functions and companies

The training of a management engineer is based on a solid basic training on disciplines such as mathematics, physics, economics, statistics, operational research, computer science and on design skills taken from the main engineering disciplines. Among these, the disciplines related to the sectors of technologies linked to production, industrial plants and economic-management engineering play a significant role.
The management engineer should be aware of the economic contexts where companies operate and of the risks/opportunities deriving from phenomena related to competitiveness among companies. He should know about the main industrial processes in order to profitably interact with specialists in different company sectors. He should possess the capacity to interpret technological innovation processes and be aware of their role as it regards the company competitiveness positioning. Finally, he should be aware of the fact that the customer/user, making his own choices, determines the success of product/service.

Specific educational objectives

The market internationalisation process is experiencing a point of non return. This situation has an impact not only on big multinational corporations, but also on SMEs which are ever-increasingly forced to face international-level markets of goods, products and services. This requires the training of professional profiles who can lead the small and medium-sized companies present in the market, using appropriate economic analyses, but also the needed juridical-institutional skills.
The university degree course for “Legal expert in development and internationalisation of enterprises” aims at assuring a sound cultural and juridical basic training that allows students to master the methodology and tools from a juridical viewpoint. At the same time, the course aims at training professional profiles capable of operating on European and global markets, with particular reference to international rules for drawing up contracts, financial transactions, problems linked to Community and international tenders, the organisation of international consulting services. The other possible educational objective is the provision of experts able to offer legal consulting services also to foreign companies accessing the Italian market.
These graduates will be able to use their professional skills in both national and international legal consulting sectors, with special reference to development and technological innovation of the companies operating on international markets.
