The project requires and allows it. The progression phases of the work are presented orally and discussed in front of the class.
In practical classes, students carry out projects individually, with teacher supervision, until they reach final prototypes.
The final learning rating is calculated as follows:
40% Prototype and manufacturing 15% Technical dossier 35% Collection presentation exercise + 10% Participation and commitment
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.
