Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The course includes theoretical and practice typology classes (45h) and laboratory practice classes for 2-3 group students (15h). Also includes tutorial support (2h / week). Lectures will present and develop the themes covered in the program, facing basic scientific concepts consolidation, problem solving, etc. Laboratory classes will be based on experimental protocols provided by the teacher. The contents are provided to students in advance in e-learning (Moodle) enabling students prior knowledge of the subject being taught. In master classes students will be asked to participate. The evaluation methodology consists of various elements including, among others, the summative tests and students performance in laboratory classes.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
