Project I


The Project I course aims to promote the acquisition of the skills necessary for the execution of a
software project and / or information system in accordance with good practices, and with a view to a
coherent integration of the knowledge acquired in other curricular units. In this domain, the adoption of
software development tools and methods is encouraged.

It is also intended to encourage proactive research behaviours, stimulate creative thinking and critical
ability in the design of the software system architecture, as well as promoting good software engineering
and documentation practices.

Teaching methodologies and assessment

Classes will be taught on a tutoring basis, to adapt to the project under development. The evaluation will
be carried out in three moments:
Evaluation of the two intermediate presentations made (including the initial work proposal) and an
analysis of the student's regular performance, in relation to the defined objectives (30%);
Evaluation related to the project / prototype developed (50%). The evaluation of this component
will be based on the project report, as well as on an analysis of the student's performance and
Project presentation (20%). If the project involves third parties, a report from the other
stakeholders must be submitted.
