They will learn about virtual modelling processes, technical and production feasibility of the prototype elements, knowledge of CAD software that interacts with new technologies (rapid prototyping, 3D scanning, CNC cooling and reverse engineering). The course includes 400 hours of internship within companies in the sector and guarantees a " Higher technical specialisation qualification" (see the information sheet).


Project Pwc

Since December 2017, the ANFIA "Data & Analysis" Statistical Portal, which is reserved for Members, has been further enhanced in terms of content thanks to the inclusion of new Reports that ANFIA has acquired from the consulting firm Pwc.
Specifically, the data in this section concerns quantitative forecasts with a five-year time frame. The data refers to an overall geographical focus and one divided by Regions and individual markets (23).
A second service provides companies with analyses and estimates of spending by Manufacturers and Co-Designers on E&D activities. This will include forecasts on the market for E&D services within Europe based on nine specific markets, with an additional coverage of China and Turkey.
A SWOT analysis of the top 10 car manufacturers and an annual study on the main product trends (Connectivity, Emission, Alternative Power Supply) and on the main technical and economic developments affecting the sector complete the panel of services.
