4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Inthe master classeswill be developedthe contents fortheoryand propose works and relations of problemsto be performed bythe student.

In the field and laboratory sessions the teachers will explain the exercises and the student should develop and solve them.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

There will be a final written examination of the theoretical and practical aspects of all topics of the course.

Field practices and laboratory practices will be evaluated by control in situ of the work done and also by the correction of practices that the student must submit.
