Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The theoretical-practical classes aim to transmit theoretical knowledge and provide examples with practical applications. Students develop their learning not only in an accompanied way, but also in a self-sustained way, using the pedagogical resources available (books, support texts, websites and simulation and circuit design software). Furthermore, the student will develop a project of a concept, technology or system. Students are evaluated throughout the semester and following the model: 5 seminars and reports (CM - average classification of the 5 works); 1 small project (CP). The final classification (CF) will be: CF=70% CM + 30% CP.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
