Learning activities and methodology
- Theory classes (large group), problem resolutions classes (small groups), individual tutorials and student personal homework; oriented to theoretical knowledge acquisition. - Laboratory practices and problems resolution classes in small groups, individual tutorials and student personal homework; oriented to practical knowledge related with the fields of the course. - Computer sessions in small groups using CAD tools for electronics circuits┬┐ simulations. The goal of these sessions is to encourage the use of the CAD tools to complement the theoretical-practical learning during the course.
