Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
Original exercise to be presented and defended in front of an academic committee. The work will be an integral project in the field of the Bachelor degree that will be professionally oriented where the different competencies acquired during the degree courses should be demonstrated or an innovative work developing an idea, prototype, or a model of systems or equipment within the field developed during the Bachelor degree. The TFG may be written in either Spanish or English. To obtain the mention of bilingual studies, the TFG is excluded from the calculation of the credits needed to calculate the 50%.
Learning activities and methodology
The learning activities and methodology for the Trabajo Fin de Grado are specified in the corresponding university regulation: Students apply competences and knowledge acquired during their studies in a Project from an area of the degree program, concluding with a written report. The foregoing reflects the corresponding project`s analysis, resolution of issues and conclusions. The Project represents 299 hours/0% on-site. The student will defend their Project in front of a tribunal, clearly presenting the corresponding points with resolution of any problems arising in the Project. 1 hour/100% on-site. The tutor for the Bachelor´s Degree Final Project helps and guides the student in all aspects necessary to carry out a solid final Project, and to write a corresponding clear and professional report. The tutoring sessions can be on-site or on line The students of 2011 plan should make self-study activities to acquire the English competences. In the university there are facilities to acquire the desired English level. Some are described below: * All students can make English level test since they start the program, existing resource to acquire the different levels (on-line portal for idioms, conversation club, and idioms grants). All students will have available an IDIOM course in AULA GLOBAL with all the information and materials. * Each academic course, each student can make twice an autodiagnosis for his/her level. The result allows to the Centro de Idiomas de la universidad to advice the student with the best options to enhance his/her skills.
Assessment System
This is done through an oral Bachelor's Degree Final Project defense in front of a tribunal selected to assess the student's work, the learning outcomes, and its presentation, according to an evaluation model. Prior to the defense, the student must have duly presented their written report to the tribunal members. The students of the English track must write and defend their bachelor thesis completely in English. The students of 2011 plan must fulfil the competencies of the english language by including in the final report a summary written in English with a minimum length of 10 pages. This summary must include the following sections: introduction and conclusions. It is recommended to write the full text in English. In addition, the originality of the Bachelor Thesis is evaluated. The University uses the Turnitin Feedback Studio program within the Aula Global for the delivery of student work. This program compares the originality of the work delivered by each student with millions of electronic resources and detects those parts of the text that are copied and pasted. Represents 100% of the evaluation.
