The teaching method is accomplished by lectures and practical classes, some in industrial facilities. Students are supported with theoretical and practical bases necessary to solve complex problems. The students are continuously monitoring to clarify doubts, to consolidate knowledge, and discuss concepts and transmits the technical approaches needed to develop the work they have in the future professional life.
Continuous assessment - consists of making 2 tests (each test worth 30% of the final grade) and presence (at least 2/3 of the classes to obtain frequency) and participation in practical classes (40% of final grade) .
