During theoretical classes the teacher introduces the main concepts supported in adequate audio-visual means such as slides and videos which are facilitated afterwards to enhance autonomous study.
Experimental classes are synchronized with the theoretical ones. Students develop experimental work in the lab targeting also team work.
Option 1: Continuous Evaluation
- 1st Test (in person, if the pandemic situation allows it);
- 2nd Test (in person, if the pandemic situation allows it);
- Practical work (in group) with report, presentation and discussion.
Final grade = 1st Test x 0.35 + 2nd Test x 0.35 + Practical work x 0.30
with 1st Test >= 8.0 values.
To obtain frequency, the student must have at least 9.5 values in the Practical work. Students with frequency in the previous academic year (2020/2021) are automatically admitted to evaluation this year.
The student will be approved if the Final grade is equal to or greater than 9.5 values while have frequency to the discipline.
If the student has a Final grade equal to or higher than 18 values, an oral exam will be held to defend the grade.
Option 2: Final Exam
All students with frequency to the discipline have access to the final exam.
The exam has a minimum grade of 9.5 values.
The exam will be in person, should the pandemic situation allows it.
The grade of the Practical work will be taken into account if:
Final Exam x 0.70 + Practical work x 0.30 > Final Exam,
provided that the grade of the final exam is > = 9.5 values.
The student will be approved if the grade of the final exam is equal to or higher than 9.5 values while have frequency to the discipline.
If the student has a final grade equal to or higher than 18 values, an oral exam will be held to defend the grade.
If the student fails, the grade of the case study will remain valid for 1 academic year.
