4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Lectures. The basic concepts of the subject will be presented through multimedia presentations, theoretical presentations, and implementation examples.

Specifically, classes will be taught with theoretical content (M1 - Lectures, M2 - Exhibition of theory and examples general and M3 - introductory and troubleshooting activities) With a total of 45 contact hours and self-employment is estimated by students of 67.5 hours .In these classes the skills CC7, CEM2, CEM4 be developed CEM8

Practice and Laboratory Class. Some contents will be explored through activities involving the practical application of knowledge through exercises, software tools and visits to different companies. In addition, student should present a work in which the students develop a project of a vehicle system or component.

Specifically,  it will be achieved Resolution of exercises and M6 - M11 practice activities, Classes will be held. Here students must complete individual and / or group and exponiendolos. In these classes CT1, CT4, CT6 skills will be developed and the performance of works presented also be developed CT1 and CT6.

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

For the evaluation of the subject, an exam will be carried out as a fundamental evaluation procedure (60% of the final grade). The realization of this final exam allows to evaluate the competences: CEM2, CEM4, CC7, CB5, CB4.

However, with the purpose of encouraging and rewarding continuous work throughout the course, other evaluation criteria have been taken into account, such as attendance and participation (5%), attendance and delivery of internships (20%), and the presentation and application of a work that can be in a group if project structure is followed (15%). The evaluation through practices, exhibitions and deliverable exercises allows to evaluate the competences: CT4, CT1, CT6, CB2, CB3, CB4, CB5, CC7.

VERY IMPORTANT: It is mandatory to attend the practical classes of the subject as well as the delivery / exhibition of practices and work in the stipulated time to pass the subject in any call. The application of these works will be done through the ILIAS platform. Any discordance with this requirement will imply not passing the subject.

In order to pass the subject and take into account the rest of the califications, it is necessary to pass the grade of 5 out of 10 in the theory exam.
