Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Theoretical classes (TE) for exposition and development of the syllabus, followed by the resolution of exercises and discussion of application examples. Laboratory classes (TP) to carry out experimental work with practical application of theoretical material. In laboratory classes, students implement circuits on assembly boards and test them using electronic laboratory equipment. The proposed works allow students to understand some practical problems inherent to its implementation and analysis. At the end of each laboratory work, students must prepare a written report.
Maximum of 2 (two) absences in laboratory classes.
The written test of frequency or exam contributes to the final grade with 70%
The laboratory component contributes 30% to the final grade.
The minimum classification for admission to the final exam is 4 points.
The minimum classification of teaching and learning for approval in the Course is 10 points.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
