Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The teaching methodology is student centred. During the semester students will consolidate and apply the concepts
acquired, by autonomous work or group work, with the support of the teaching team. The curricular unit has a duration
of one academic semester. Approval on this curricular unit provides the student 2 ECTS. Contact hours are organised
in seminar classes (exposition of the syllabus contents and support throughout students’ work and reports execution,
either individual or group).
The evaluation component is based on one individual theoretical-pratical work. The minimum attendance to classes and the minimum
grade to be admitted to the exam are established annually in accordance with UBI regulations.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
