5.1. Methodological overview

The teaching and learning activities of this course are organised in several levels: lectures, case studies
and assignments. The student gets progressively more involved as the course progresses.
During the lectures, the theoretical foundations of the course are presented and some sample problems are solved in detail.
The case-study classes are the perfect supplement for the lectures because they allow the students to fully understand the subject. At the same time, the case studies develop an engineering way of thinking. These classes are organised in smaller groups where the student solves the suggested cases.
The assignments are small scale projects, more complex than the case studies. They are solved in groups outside the class.

5.2. Learning tasks

  • Lectures (30 h): the theory will be explained here.
  • Tutorials (20 h): in these sessions, the students will solve some case studies under the supervision of the lecturer. The cases will be closely related to the theory reviewed in the lectures.
  • Lab exercises (10 h): the student will see either lab or computer demonstrations of the topics studied in the lectures.
  • Assignments (30 h outside the class): There will be several small projects to be addressed by the students in groups.
  • Individual study time (57 h outside the class): it is advisable the student carries out this study along the term.
  • Exam (3 h).
