The student will have a tutor in the company in order to direct, guide and monitor student activity in the company. 5) Finally the student will make a report on the practical evaluation.
Assessment System
To assess the knowledge and skills of the student, two reports will be taken into account: - A report by the tutor in the company where the practice is carried out. - A written report by the student, to be delivered before the given deadline. From these two reports, the academic tutor will qualify the subject.
