Classification Type: Quantitativa (0-20)

Evaluation Methodology:
Three projects related to the syllabus taught in the discipline with weights in the evaluation of 20%, 40% and 40% respectively - has to assess the student knowledge by conducting works that integrate various topics of the course. Allow students to develop skills for development work in the field of Technical and Computer Assisted Drawing, evaluating their performance and changing strategies if necessary, during the semester. The projects are developed in the period of lessons (Normal Season of evaluation). In this U.C. the moments of evaluation related to the Resource and the Special Seasons do not apply. Projects delivered after the date set (limit 1 week delay) will have a reduction in the evaluation grade. In case of doubt regarding the autonomous work developed by the student in the project(s) an oral exam will be performed.
