Discipline is taught using the traditional division into classes
Theoretical (T), theoretical and practical (TP) and practice (P). In each class T,
matter is discussed in conjunction with the teacher, based on the book and slide projection. The last 15 minutes of each class T are reserved to a mini-test evaluation. Before that, the teacher gives a summary of the matter to be discussed at next class T. At the end of the semester, students perform frequency of type T, thematically comprehensive. In each class TP, matter is the subject of the joint resolution of illustrative exercises of application: such reflection is conducted either by teachers or by a group of students previously in charge of this task. TP frequency evaluation are periodically made . P classes consists in carrying out laboratory work. To avoid the final exam, attendance of at least 75% of the classes of type T and P is required.
