Learning outcomes The main objectives are the application of the knowledge acquired throughout the course and the acquisition of knowledge at project level in Electrical and Computer Engineering, integrating in practice and in a guided and supervised way, the different scientific areas, in the development of a work/project, with some autonomy level.
The learning outcomes are:
Understand the different scientific areas of the Bachelor.
Integrate the acquired knowledge and solve new problems.
Understand models, equipment or software.
Understand project analytical and numerical methods.
Apply project economic concepts.
Apply tools to support or simulate electrical/electronic projects.
Elaborate project proposals.
Be able to communicate their knowledge to either specialists/non specialists, in a clear and unambiguous way.
Organize descriptive and special technical documents.
Identify and consider applied standards.

Syllabus 1. Introduction to the project in Electrical and Computer Engineering: Definition of the project in engineering. Definition of basic technical rules. Principles applied in the design. Models applied to the definition of a project.
2. Definition of the project: Objectives. Specifications. Resolution proposal. Planning. Technical choice rules.
3. Project Planning: Legal rules applied to present a project proposal. Descriptive parts of the project. Project design. Decision rules in draft form. Specifications for the project.
4. Computer Aided Project: Computational tools. Simulation Strategies. Project processes and equipment.
5. Integration of the project in multidisciplinary teams.
6. Presentation and discussion of the project.
