COMPETENCES To have and understand the knowledges to give the base and the opportunity to be original in the development and in the application of ideas, in general in the field or research. To get that the students could apply the acquired knowledges and the ability to solve problems in the new environment and in the much more wide context (multidisciplinary context) related to the area of study. To get as well that the students will be able to integrate the knowledges in order to fase the complexity of making judgements by having limited information and It includes as well reflections over social and ethical responsibilities related to the applications of their knowledges. The students should know to communicate their conclusions and their knowledges based on strong arguments to present them to specialized and even no specialized audience, in a very clear and without ambiguity. The students should have as well the ability to learn and to keep studying in a very continuous way. To acquire the capabilities to understand the new technologies of electronic systems and Its adequate use and integration to solve new problems and new applications. To acquire as well the capability to work in groups integrating different multidisciplinary approaches. To include the scientific method as a fundamental tool of working to be applied in the professional and scientific fields. The students should have the capability to solve practical problems coming from the interaction of the different elements within an electronic sensing system with external agents, by taking into account interference signals, electromagnetic compatibility or the termal management in the different steps of the design, prefabrication and redesign systems. To know the state of the art of the actual and future techniques in the following fields: components, power subsystems, photonics, integrated circuits, photonic integrated circuits, microsystems, nanoelectronics, identification systems and systems applied to dependency. Capacity to identify from a conceptual as well as practical point of view the scientific and technological challenges in the different applications of the electronic systems and Its integration and utility. Capacity to make a useful search of information and to identify as well the state of the art of a technological problem in the field of electronic systems and Its application to the development of new sensors and new sensing systems. LEARNING RESULTS Upon passing this Subject the students should be able to identify from a conceptual point of view, but as well practical what are the main scientific and practical challenges in the different applications of the electronic systems as well as Its integration and utility. The proposed applications will be dynamic related to the technical state of the art in each moment, being as an example the proposal of this course on New Sensors in Industrial, Environmental and Biomedical Applications.
