Teaching methodologies and assessment

TEACHING METHODOLOGIES: The teaching methodologies were defined based on the objectives of the Curricular Unit. There will be different kinds of sessions: some sessions are intended for gradual explanation of the matter, supported by practical examples; in others, the students will solve practical exercises with the help of the teacher. In a significant number of sessions, the work will be performed using the AutoCAD software. In addition to the practical assignments requested, students are encouraged to develop outside-class work.

Despite the established (presential) working mode, a transition (at any time) to a remote regime was foreseen, if necessary in the context of COVID19.

EVALUATION: Continuous assessment - test (70%) and individual practical work (30%). Assessment by exam: written test (100%).
