Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
BASIC COMPETENCES CB6 Possess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas, often in a research context 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 CB9 That students know how to communicate their conclusions and the knowledge and ultimate reasons that sustain them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way GENERAL COMPETENCES CG6 Capacity to adapt to changes in requirements associated with new products, new specifications and environments. CG7 Be able to generate new ideas (creativity) and to anticipate change. SPECIFIC COMPETENCES CE8 Ability to apply augmented reality technology, in the context of Connected Industry 4.0. LEARNING RESULTS Manage augmented reality technology for the design and implementation of distributed applications in the context of Industry 4.0 by collecting information from different data sources.
