Second semester
Subject Type:

5.1. Methodological overview

The organization of teaching will be carried out using the following steps:

  • Theory Classes: Theoretical activities carried out mainly through exposition by the teacher, where the theoretical supports of the subject are displayed, highlighting the fundamental, structuring them in topics and or sections, interrelating them.
  • Practical Classes: The teacher resolves practical problems or cases for demonstrative purposes. This type of teaching complements the theory shown in the lectures with practical aspects.
  • Laboratory Workshop: The lecture group is divided up into various groups, according to the number of registered students, but never with more than 20 students, in order to make up smaller sized groups.
  • Individual Tutorials: Those carried out giving individual, personalized attention with a teacher from the department. Said tutorials may be in person or online.

5.2. Learning tasks

  • 38 hours of lectures, with 50% theoretical demonstration and 50% solving type problems.
  • 14 hours of laboratory workshop, in 1 or 2 hour sessions.
  • 6 hours of written assessment tests, two hours per test.
  • 2 hours of PPT presentations.
  • 90 hours of personal study, divided up over the 15 weeks of the 2nd semester.


There is a tutorial calendar timetable set by the teacher that can be requested by the students who want a tutorial.
