The General Training Centre at Program is made up of basic and general training subjects in Industrial Engineering and subjects related to Research Methods & Techniques needed to develop dissertations or theses.

Student learning is reinforced through lectures presented by experienced researchers at Seminars I, in the Master's course.

In the Doctorate course, Seminars II provides a unique experience in terms of developing theses, as at the end of the course the student presents the project of the thesis to an examining board, (pre-qualification), which helps to define the research focus.
