Course Information

Course Objectivs

1 To acquire theoretical and practical knowledge (at the laboratorial level) in Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering.

2 To understand the multi and interdisciplinary character of the Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering area.

3 To be aware of the past and futur evolution of the Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering area.

Evaluation Criteria

Classification Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Model: B
Evaluation Methodology: The evaluation of this course is based on: a) Written tests (2 tests, one in the middle of the semester and the other in the end); the tests allow to evaluate the knowledge and skills acquired by each student; the tests have a weight of 60% in the overall course evaluation; b) Lab reports from the experimental works done along the semester; the lab activities and the correspondent reports are a team work; the lab reports allow the evaluation of the students capacity to work in team and to interpret and communicate the experimental results; the lab reports have a weight of 40% in the overall course evaluation. The tests may be repeated in the appeal period but the lab reports do not. A minimum of 9.5 values is required in each element of evaluation to succeed in the course.
