Learning activities and methodology
AF1: THEORETICAL-PRACTICAL CLASSES. In this classes, we will present the knowledge that students should acquire. Students will receive the class notes and will have basic texts of reference to facilitate the follow-up of the classes and the development of the subsequent work. Exercises, practical problems on the part of the student will be solved and workshops and evaluation test will be held to acquire the necessary skills. AF3: INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP WORK. AF8: WORKSHOPS AND LABORATORIES. AF9: FINAL EXAM. In which the knowledge, skills and abilities acquired throughout the course will be assessed globally. MD1: THEORY CLASS. Presentations in class with support of computer and audiovisual media, in which the main concepts of the subject are developed and the materials and bibliography are provided to complement the students' learning. MD2: PRACTICES. Resolution of practical cases, problems, etc. raised by the teacher individually or in groups. MD3: TUTORIALS. Individualized assistance (individual tutorials) or group (collective tutorials) to students by the teacher. MD6: LABORATORY PRACTICES. Applied / experimental teaching to workshops and laboratories under the supervision of a tutor.
