Skills and learning outcomes
CB1. Students have demonstrated possession and understanding of knowledge in an area of study that builds on the foundation of general secondary education, and is usually at a level that, while relying on advanced textbooks, also includes some aspects that involve knowledge from the cutting edge of their field of study. CB2. Students are able to apply their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional manner and possess the competences usually demonstrated through the development and defence of arguments and problem solving within their field of study. COCIN3. Knowledge of basic and technological subject areas that will capacitate them to acquire new methods and theories and endow them with the versatility to adapt to new situations. COCIN4. Ability to resolve problems with initiative, decision-making, creativity, and critical reasoning skills and to communicate and transmit knowledge, skills and abilities in the Industrial Engineering field. CEP2. Knowledge and ability to apply computational and experimental tools for analysis and quantification of electrical engineering problems. CEP3. Ability to design and carry out experiments to analyze and interpret data obtained. CEB2. Understanding and command of the fundamental concepts of the general laws of mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetic fields and waves and application for resolving engineering problems. By the end of this content area, students will be able to have: RA1.1. Knowledge and understanding of the physics principles underlying their branch of engineering. RA2.1. The ability to apply their knowledge and understanding to identify, formulate and solve physics problems using established methods. RA4.2. The ability to design and conduct appropriate experiments, interpret the data and draw conclusions. RA4.3. Workshop and laboratory skills. RA5.1. The ability to select and use appropriate tools and methods to solve physics problems. RA5.2. The ability to combine theory and practice to solve physics problems.
