The students will have 485 training hours for the next ten months. The Program will end in July with the presentation of the innovation projects carried out during the course by the students.

As a new feature, this year the Corporate University has formed a Faculty Commission to coordinate and provide technical support to the the lecturers from each of the program areas. The main functions of this commission include integrating and consolidating the content and methodology of the Program, choosing the projects that students will carry out and then evaluate the outcomes.

The Management and Development of New Products Program, developed by the Galician Automotive Sector, is unique in Spain and meets the real training needs of companies, through practical training taught by industry professionals and active visits and product and process development projects.
