As this course unit requires an active participation of the student, assessment will be on an ongoing basis.
Thus, for each of the proposed Experimental Projects, developed in class, individual technical report will be requested. It will be proposed a practical work to be solved by small groups. The final grade will result from the weighted average obtained between the individual assessment, weighing 60% and the assessment in the group work, weighing 40%. The exam must include written test and the presentation of the individual reports related to the follow-up of the Experimental Projects developed in practical class.
