Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Active and cooperative teaching-learning methodologies were adapted that encourage reflection and value processes of a cognitive and interpersonal nature, defending the acquisition of concepts, problem solving, research, and practical work carried out in PL classes, centered on student and face-to-face.
The final grade at the end of the Teaching-Learning period is calculated as follows:
50% Prototype and manufacturing + 40% technical dossier + 10%. Student participation and commitment

The student must have a minimum grade of 6 to be admitted to the exam, with the obligation to submit all proposed work.

The student is exempt from the exam if, in the teaching learning classification, they have a grade greater than or equal to 10 points - Approved.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
