Learning activities and methodology
The student will have a tutor in the company, who will direct, guide and supervise the activities of the practice. There will also be an academic tutor at Uc3m who will be informed about the progress of the practice and will provide support to the student if necessary. The academic tutor will carry out the tutorials that he or she considers necessary and will also grade the student. INTERNSHIP WORK (5 ECTS): Consists in the realization of a real-world project in the company under the supervision of a company advisor. THEORETICAL WORK (1 ECTS): The student must write a report about the work developed during the internship. Its aim is to prove that the internship goals have been fulfilled, and the competences have been acquired appropriately.
Assessment System
The evaluation system includes the evaluation of the activities carried out during the internship in the company. For this, the following elements will be used: - Report of the tutor in the company: The academic tutor of the Uc3m will request this report from the tutor of the company. - Student report: of the work done during the practice. The student will do it according to the instructions published in Aula Global to which he or she will have access once enrolled in the subject. Both elements will give a 100% rating. The academic tutor at UC3M, based on the above documents, will assess the work according to the form established for this purpose. Students who do not present the report will be rated as NOT SUBMITTED. The Tutor must send the assessment record with this grade. If the student gives up the practice for which the subject has been validated and enrolled without having reached enough number of hours to pass the subject, he or she will be graded as NOT SUBMITTED because will not be able to present the report.
