Possess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas CB7. That students know how to apply the knowledge acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study. CB8. That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of making judgments based on information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. CB10. That the students possess the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely autonomous. CG3.

Learning activities and methodology
The formative activities of the subject are: AF1. Theoretical class AF2. Practical classes AF3. Theoretical-practical class AF5. Tutorials AF6. Group work AF7. Individual student work The teaching methodologies to be used will be: MD1. Exhibitions in the teacher's classroom with computer and audiovisual support, in which the main concepts of the subject are developed and the bibliography is provided to complement the students' learning. MD2. Critical reading of texts recommended by the subject teacher: press articles, reports, manuals and/or academic articles, either for later discussion in class, or to expand and consolidate knowledge of the subject. MD3. Resolution of practical cases, problems, etc. raised by the teacher individually or in a group. MD4. Presentation and discussion in class, under the teacher's moderation of topics related to the content of the subject, as well as practical cases. MD5. Elaboration of works and reports individually or in group. Development and justification: Theoretical academic sessions: as a means of offering a general and systematic vision of the topics, highlighting the most important aspects of them and interspersing exercises between theoretical explanations when deemed appropriate. These theoretical sessions will be given regularly at the beginning of each topic. Practical academic sessions: Calculation and analysis of practical cases, in correlation with the theoretical concepts taught. Seminars: Exhibition and debate of proposed works, organized in seminars, in which the capacities of group work, exhibition, defense and discussion of a topic or work are practiced.
