The Course is completely online and all classes are now available.

There are five modules that separate the 20 classes.

Students also have access to exclusive content such as interviews with professionals and large companies.


The organization of classes favors the review of previous content and strengthens the connection between materials and their respective production processes.

Therefore, the cycle between research, choice of material and industrial production of the product closes effectively.
