Learning activities and methodology
The teaching methodology will include: - Magisterial Classes, where the students will be presented with the basic knowledge they must acquire. Students will be supplied with lecture notes and key reference texts which will enable them to complete and acquire a more in depth knowledge of the subject. - Problems Classes, these are aimed at the solving of exercises and examples within the context of real case studies. These classes will be complimented with the resolution of practical exercises on behalf of the student. - Laboratory Practical Sessions - Group tutorials
Assessment System
