Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
As content is understood all those activities carried out by students in companies, entities and organizations, which aim to provide a practical complement (or academic-practical complement) to academic training provided that such activity is related to their academic training and their possible career opportunities. In particular, the training objective of the practice will necessarily include the following aspects: - Tasks to be developed by the student. - Knowledge that the student will acquire. - If you will participate in design, planning or development tasks. - Within which projects or areas will the practices be framed. - Tools that you will use.
Learning activities and methodology
The student will have a tutor in the company in order to direct, guide and supervise the activity in 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. It will carry out the tutorials that it considers necessary and will also grade the student. Practical Work: 5 ECTS = 150 hours of internship in the company. Theoretical Work: 1 ECTS = 30 hours to make a report of the work done during the internships in the company.
Assessment System
The evaluation system includes the evaluation of the activities carried out during the internships 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 memory: of the work done during the practices. You will do it according to the instructions published in Aula Global to which you will have access once you have enrolled the subject. Both elements will give a 100% rating. The academic tutor at UC3M, based on the above documents, will qualify on the form established for this purpose. Students who do not present the report will be rated NOT PRESENTED. The Tutor must send the minutes with this qualification. If the student abandons the practice for which the subject has been validated and enrolled without having reached the hours corresponding to the credits to be passed, they will be graded with NOT PRESENTED because they will not be able to present the memory.
