Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Quality (conceptual and technical of the projects). Work follow-up: the student must present and discuss the work with the teacher every week. Students who have technical resources outside the department must inform the teacher and will have to personally monitor the construction of the prototype, carrying out a descriptive report of the various steps, technologies and processes carried out, accompanied by a photographic memory. The prototype will have to comply with the formal and structural criteria established in the model and project during the classes. It will thus be up to the teacher, through contact with the student, to evaluate the processes learned and the success in passing on to the prototype the pre-established criteria in the project and model.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
