Learning activities and methodology
- Lectures to introduce the knowledge that students must acquire. Students will receive class slides and will have basic reference texts to reinforce those topics they are most interested in. - Practical classes to solve exercises and the practical development of the contents presented in the lectures. - Laboratory sessions, where the student designs, assembles and experiments a digital system. - There is the possibility of holding a group tutoring session.
