Learning activities and methodology

The docent methodology will include:
- Master classes, where the knowledge that the students must acquire will be presented. To make easier the development of the class, the students will have written notes and also will have the basic texts of reference that will facilitate their subsequent work.
- Resolution of exercises by the student that will serve as self-evaluation and to acquire the necessary skills.
- Small groups classes, in which problems proposed to the students are discussed and developed.
- Tutorials.
