Teaching method

Oral theoretical lectures.

Practical lessons in the lab with practical group work and individual research.

Evaluation method

This course adopts the continuous evaluation method.

The frequency is obtained with the presence and participation at the practical classes throughout the semester, a minimum of 2/3 of the classes taught.

The practical component of the course is assessed by a set of two practical individual exercises (15% + 35% of the final grade) and one practical group exercise (10% of the final grade). Students who do not deliver the practical assignments will automatically be rejected for lack of attendance.

The theoretical component is evaluated by performing a test at the end of the semester, which corresponds to 20% of the final grade, and a group paper corresponding to 20% of the final grade.

Students approved and with frequency in the practical component of the course, but who aren’t approved in the theoretical evaluation have access to a written exam.

Students who are disapproved in the practical component of the course, even if approved in the theoretical evaluation, must repeat the course, not having access to the written resource exam.
