5.1. Methodological overview

The methodology followed in this course is oriented towards achievement of the learning objectives. It is based on participation and the active role of the student favors the development of communication and decision-making skills. A wide range of teaching and learning tasks are implemented, such as lectures, guided assignments, laboratory sessions, autonomous work, and evaluation.

Students are expected to participate actively in the class throughout the semester.

Classroom materials will be available via Moodle. These include a repository of the lecture notes used in class, the course syllabus, as well as other course-specific learning materials.

Further information regarding the course will be provided on the first day of class.


5.2. Learning tasks

The course includes 6 ECTS organized according to:

- Lectures (1.2 ECTS): 30 hours.
- Laboratory sessions (0.6 ECTS): 15 hours.
- Guided assignments (0.6 ECTS): 15 hours.
- Tutorials (0.2 ECTS): 5 hours.
- Study of theory (2.6 ECTS): 65 hours.
- Practical work assignments (0.6 ECTS): 15 hours.
- Evaluation (0.2 ECTS): 5 hours.

Lectures: the professor will explain the theoretical contents of the course and solve illustrative applied problems. These problems and exercises can be found in the problem set provided at the beginning of the semester. Lectures run for 3 weekly hours. Although it is not a mandatory activity, regular attendance is highly recommended.

Laboratory sessions: sessions will take place every 2 weeks (6 sessions in total) and last 2.5 hours each. Students will work together in groups actively doing tasks such as practical demonstrations, measurements, calculations, and the use of graphical and analytical methods.

Guided assignments: students will complete assignments, problems and exercises related to concepts seen in laboratory sessions and lectures. They will be submitted at the beginning of every laboratory sessions to be discussed and analyzed. If assignments are submitted later, students will not be able to take the assessment test.

Autonomous work (study of theory and practical work assignments): students are expected to spend about 90 hours to study theory, solve problems, prepare lab sessions, and take exams.

Tutorials: the professor's office hours will be posted on Moodle and the degree website to assist students with questions and doubts. It is beneficial for the student to come with clear and specific questions.
