Learning activities and methodology
Presential classes and personal work, aimed at the acquisition of theoretical knowledge and practical skills related to the program. Students are delivered the documentation used by the teacher in class (presentations, ...). Students, in groups of 3-4, will design a simple structure. Throughout the course must bring together advances in their respective projects in classes where the teacher will discuss their proposals in guiding the development of their work.
