This Discipline aims at introducing conceptual bases of Electrotechnology that allow a general formation, both in the various areas of Engineering Sciences and in the function of Electrotechnical Engineering in society, allowing students to have a solid and homogeneous vision of the principles and technologies of the area
Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired
The UC intends for students to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for a solid training that will give them an indispensable analytical capacity in the evolution of their technical knowledge.
Teaching methodologies and assessment
Theoretical teaching, using the exposition of pre-defined subjects in the programmatic content, by the teacher. Three classes will have the intervention of 3 external people, invited as lecturers. The topics covered will link the Electrotechnology and business activity. The acquisition of skills will be based on participatory and interactive methods. Among other elements, the student can integrate the elements made available by the teacher. The evaluation intends to assess students' apprehension of the knowledge and skills indicated for the Course and comply with the regime of continuous evaluation or the final exam. 1.Teoric 90% frequency 2.Assiduity and participation 10%
