Technologic Specialization Course (CET in Portuguese) in the field of materials, metallurgy and metal-mechanics to prepare trainees to integrate an industry that is growing fast in Portugal.
CET is a level 5 training program according to the European Qualifications Framework.
It aims to train high level professional technicians to develop activities of conception, analysis, characterization and inspection of materials in planning, production and in final evaluation of the product quality, selecting the most suitable technological equipments.
Technicians will also develop planning skills, coordination of activities and laboratory resources to optimize results.
The responsible training entity is CINFU, the Professional Training Centre for the Portuguese Foundry Industry, with the cooperation from CITNM. The theoretical and practical classes are divided between CITNM and CINFU facilities. The course is co-funded by the European Social Fund of the European Union and the Portugal 2020 – Norte 2020 Operational Program.
A protocol established with the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto provides 17 ECTS to those who succefully conclude the CET, to be used to access higher education in the Integrated Master in Metallurgical and Material Engineering.
