Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
This course has no specific previous requirements
Learning outcomes: R1 Knowledge and understanding: have basic knowledge and understanding of the scientific and technological foundations of Computer Engineering, as well as a specific knowledge of computer science, computer engineering and information systems. R2 Engineering Analysis: To be able to identify Computer Engineering problems, recognize their specifications, establish different resolution methods and select the most appropriate methods of resolution and select the most appropriate for its solution, taking into account the social, human health, environmental, and commercial constraints applicable in each case. R3 Engineering Design: Be able to perform engineering designs according to their level of knowledge and understanding that comply with the required specifications, collaborating with other engineers required specifications in collaboration with other engineers and graduates. Design encompasses devices, processes, methods and objects, and specifications broader than strictly technical, which includes social awareness, health and safety, and environmental and commercial considerations Core and general competencies: CGB3 - Ability to understand and master the basic concepts of discrete mathematics, logic, algorithmic, and computational complexity, and their application to complexity, and their application to the resolution of engineering problems. CGO3 - Ability to design, develop, evaluate and ensure the accessibility, ergonomics, usability and security of systems, services and computer applications, as well as the information they manage. CGO6 - Ability to conceive and develop centralized or distributed computer systems or architectures integrating hardware, software and networks in accordance with hardware, software and networks according to the knowledge acquired. CB1 - That the students have demonstrated to possess and understand knowledge in an area of study that starts from the base of general secondary education, and is usually general secondary education, and is usually found at a level that, while relying on advanced textbooks, also includes some aspects that involve knowledge from some aspects that involve knowledge from the cutting edge of their field of study. Specific competencies: CECRI1 - Ability to design, develop, select and evaluate computer applications and systems, ensuring their reliability, security and quality, in accordance with ethical principles and current legislation and regulations. CECRI11 - Knowledge and application of the characteristics, functionalities and structure of Distributed Systems, Computer Networks and the Internet. and the Internet and design and implement applications based on them.

Learning activities and methodology
- Theoretical-practical classes: 1.8 ECTS. In them, the knowledge to be acquired by the students will be presented. They will receive the class notes and will have basic reference texts to facilitate the follow-up of the classes and the development of the subsequent work. Exercises will be solved by the student that will serve as self-evaluation and to acquire the necessary skills. Classes of problems, in which the problems proposed to the students will be developed and discussed. - Laboratory practices: 0,25 ECTS. - Final exam: 0,17 ECTS. The knowledge, skills and abilities acquired throughout the course will be globally assessed. - Individual or group work of the student: 3,1 ECTS. - Tutorials: 0,6 ECTS Individualized assistance (individual tutorials) or in group (group tutorials) to the students by the professor.
