Learning activities and methodology
Theoretical lectures: The goal is for the student to obtain the cognitive specific competencies of the subject as well as the transversal competencies like analytical and abstraction skills. Practical lectures: The goal is for the student to obtain the instrumental specific competencies of the subject as well as the transversal competencies like problem resolution and the application of knowledge. Continuos evaluation exercises: Started at the practical lectures and finished the goal of these exercises is to complete the instrumental specific competencies and to initiate the attitudinal specific competencies as well as the transversal competencies like problem resolution and the application of knowledge. Projects: Developed without the presence of the teacher, their goal is to complete and to integrate the achievement of all the specific and transversal competencies by developing projects where is well documented the approach to the problem, the chosen method to solve it, the obtained results and the interpretation of them. Office hours: Individual assistance (individual tutoring) or group assistance (group tutoring) for the students given by the teacher. Final exam: The goal is to enhance and complete the development of the cognitive and procedural specific competencies. It reflects specifically the leverage of the theoretical lectures.
