4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

 The main resource is the use of Virtual Teaching Platform ILIAS which is necessary for the student gets used. The student will find all the information necessary to successfully pass the course, recommended readings, problems and other material of interest. In the Virtual Course, different forums, one of attention to questions about the subject, another student interaction with each other will be created.

 In teaching practices at least two visits will be made, The date will be determined throughout the course.

 A draft calculation of the various elements that integrate a small hydroelectric plant, including analysis of economic profitability is further developed.

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 theoretical knowledge of the subject a theoretical written examination in the official call will be made. The note of the theoretical part will involve 40% of the final grade. 

Individual works will consist of the study of feasibility of a small hydroelectric plant (account for 40% of the note)

Attendance and active participation in class will be evaluated by the teacher and will account for 20% of the final grade.
