Competences

Technical Competences

Technical competencies

  • CE1 - Skillfully use mathematical concepts and methods that underlie the problems of science and data engineering.

Transversal Competences

Transversals

  • CT5 - Solvent use of information resources. Manage the acquisition, structuring, analysis and visualization of data and information in the field of specialty and critically evaluate the results of such management.
  • CT6 [Avaluable] - Autonomous Learning. Detect deficiencies in one's own knowledge and overcome them through critical reflection and the choice of the best action to extend this knowledge.

Basic

  • CB1 - That students have demonstrated to possess and understand knowledge in an area of ??study that starts from the base of general secondary education, and is usually found at a level that, although supported by advanced textbooks, also includes some aspects that imply Knowledge from the vanguard of their field of study.

Generic Technical Competences

Generic

  • CG2 - Choose and apply the most appropriate methods and techniques to a problem defined by data that represents a challenge for its volume, speed, variety or heterogeneity, including computer, mathematical, statistical and signal processing methods.
  • CG5 - To be able to draw on fundamental knowledge and sound work methodologies acquired during the studies to adapt to the new technological scenarios of the future.

Teaching methodology

Theory classes will be in the form of master classes in which the contents of the subject will be explained and examples and illustrative problems will also be given.
In the problem classes, problems will be solved on the topics studied in theory.

Evaluation methodology

There will be two exams: a mid-course exam P (which does not release a subject) and a final exam F; in addition solved problems will have to be delivered and/or answer quizzes L.

The grade of the subject in the ordinary call will be calculated as follows:

MAX (0.6 * F + 0.3 * P; 0.9 * F) + 0.1 * L

The mark in the extraordinary call will be the mark of the exam.

Contingency plan

En el cas que s'hagi d'impartir docència no presencial, es faran classes per videoconferència i es facilitarà el material necessari a l'alumnat.
