Learning activities and methodology
Learning activities: Master classes Exercises Computer labs Projects Teaching methodologies: Presentations of the professor in class with computing and visual media, where the professor develops the mail concepts of the subject and provides bibliography supplementing the knowledge of students. Critical reading of texts recommended by the professor: manuals and/or academic papers, either for their posterior discussion in class, or for widening and consolidating the subject matter.
