Teaching methods and learning activities

Lecture classes are exposed concepts using practical examples whenever necessary.

In recitation classes are proposed practical exercises, to be solved by students, in addition to the concepts previously presented in the lecture classes. In addition, the students will have to develop a project, in which they are expected to apply the concepts presented in class.

Eligibility for exams

Delivery of practical assignment and a final examination through a written test.

Calculation formula of final grade

Minimum grade of 8 marks (out of 20) on the Project and Exam

Final Grade = 0.5 * Project + 0.5 * Exam

Note that to obtain minimal marks roundings are not considered. That means, that the exam's minimal mark is 40%. Ex: 7,95 < 8 => therefore fails.

Examinations or Special Assignments

One pratical assignment, partially executed during the pratical classes, to be presented in the last week of classes and delivered the week before.

Special assessment (TE, DA, ...)

Part time students should present their assignments in the same schedule dates. The delivery of the assignments should be done until the same deadline as regular students.

Classification improvement

The exam component can be improved with a new exam. The assignment component cannot be improved in the same edition. However, it is possible to improve it in the next edition.
