Planned learning activities and teaching methods
At the end of this course unit the student should be able to solve problems using the techniques of computational intelligence. To accomplish this goal, there are theoretical classes that introduce the concepts, models and language adequate to problem resolution using the techniques of computational intelligence, and practical classes where the student has the opportunity to test her knowledge by writing programs that solve the proposed problems.
