Course Information

Course Objectivs

O1 This curricular unit aims to provide students with a broad vision of the theme of nanoscience and materials at the nanoscale.

O2 The aim is to offer to the student the greatest possible diversity of knowledge related to nanoscience and the possibility of acquiring the basic tools that will help him, not only to deepen the knowledge in other disciplines, but also of producing new knowledge and developing the capacity of critical thinking.

Evaluation Criteria

Classification Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Model: A
Evaluation Methodology: The evaluation will consist of two evaluation tests (minimum score in each test: 9.5, 60% of the final grade) and the preparation and oral presentation of a monograph about one topic related with the course (maximum two students per group, the remaining 40%). COMPLEMENTARY PERIOD: Only students with approval on at least one test and positive evaluation on the theoretical-practical component (including student workers) may be evaluated in the complementary period. Except special cases mentioned in the UMa regulation for the assessment of students, the students may only recover one failed test on the complementary period .
