Practical session 7: Labview application: measuring, control and data analysis
The methodology followed in this subject are based on four main
points:
1) Lessons and seminars. It means master lectures delivered
by the professor where the active participation of the students is
going to be boosted.
2) Practical lessons. These lessons will be delivered in the
laboratory in groups where the maximum number of student per group
will not be more that 20 people. These lessons will allow to put in
practice the concepts which will be describe through the
theoretical lessons.
3) Presentations by the students in class. The students will
expose their works about some topics which it will be proposed by
the professor.
4) Tutorial sessions in group or individual. This activity
will allow to give a more personal answer to the doubts that the
students will have along the academic year.
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
The evaluation of the subject is based on four points:
1) Attendance and active participation in lectures. This
point will represent 5% of the final mark.
2) Problems resolution and/or presentations in class. This
point will represent 25% of the final mark. The problems will
have to be solved and given for its correction by the professor.
The presentations will consist in a hour of speech of a proposed
topic by the professor.
3) Design and implementation of electronic circuits in
practical sessions. This point will represent the 35% of the final
mark. There will be practical sessions which are going to be
corrected in the laboratory and other ones which will be necessary
to prepare a final report.
4) Written exam. This point will represent 35% of the
final mark.
The first point described above is aimed to evaluate the progress of the students in order to achieve the competences CB6, CG1, CG2, CG3, CT1 and CT5. Moreover, the following results of the learning are also evaluated by this activity: Resul16 and Result17.
The second point described above is aimed to evaluate the progress of the students in order to achieve the competences CB6, CE12, CG5 and CT1. Moreover, the following results of the learning are also evaluated by this activity: Resul16, Resul17, Resul18 and Result19.
The third point described above is aimed to evaluate the progress of the students in order to achieve the competences CB6, CE10, CE11, CE12, CE13, CE14, CG4, CG5 and CT2. Moreover, the following results of the learning are also evaluated by this activity: Resul16, Resul17, Resul19 and Result20.
The fourth point described above is aimed to evaluate the progress of the students in order to achieve the competences CB7, CE10, CE12, CG4, CG5 and CT1. Moreover, the following results of the learning are also evaluated by this activity: Resul18, Resul19 and Resul20.
Note: There is not a minimum mark (for any of the points above described) that the students have to achieve to compute the mean of the three parts (overall mark).
