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 competences acquired during the degree courses should be demonstrated or an innovative work developing an idea, prototype or a model of systems or equipments within the field developed during the Bachelor degree. 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.
Learning activities and methodology
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 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.
Assessment System
This is done through an oral Bachelor's Degree Final Project defense before a tribunal selected to assess the student's work, the learning outcomes, and the presentation of the same, according to an evaluation model. Prior to the defense, the student must have duly presented their written report to the tribunal members. Represents 100% of the evaluation 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. If the student has correctly made the appointment and the bibliographic reference of the documents he uses as a source, Turnitin will not mark it as plagiarism. The student defends their Project before a tribunal, clearly presenting the corresponding points with resolution of any problems arising in the Project. 1 hour/100% on-site
