Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The course is structured with theoretical classes – T (exposition of the subjects of the course and presentation of practical examples) and practical classes - PL (solving practical problems to learn methods, processes and techniques for applying fundamental concepts).
Evaluation is performed in two phases:
- Continuous evaluation: theoretical and practical tests throughout the semester;
- Final exam (with theoretical and practical part) for admitted students.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
