Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Classes are divided into "Practical" and "Theoretical". During the later, method is predominantly expositive. On the contrary, during the practical classes, it's up to the students attempt to solve the practical exercises given by the teacher and the implementation (supervised) of the practical project of the course.

Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
