4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

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

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

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: Resul-16 and Result-17.

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: Resul-16, Resul-17, Resul-18 and Result-19.

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: Resul-16, Resul-17, Resul-19 and Result-20.

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: Resul-18, Resul-19 and Resul-20.

 

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).
