3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

This is an introductory course covering the main aspects of biomaterial design. Special emphasis is placed on the properties of materials that determine the behavior of devices once implanted, namely, chemical nature, bulk and surface properties, manufacturing processes, testing and regulatory issues. During the second part of the term, the factors affecting the biological response of the implanted materials will also be studied.

Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 70.00% 70.00%
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 30.00% 30.00%
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 4 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 12.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    The modality assigned by default to the student will be the continuous evaluation. Any student may request the change to the modality of non-continuous evaluation (before the end of the class period) by emailing the teacher, provided that he has not completed 50% of the evaluable activities.
    To pass the subject one must obtain a global score equal to or greater than 5 points. This qualification will result from applying the percentages shown in the table to the different marks that will be obtained along the course.
    In addition, mandatory requirement will be:
    - A minimun score of 4 points in the final test.
    A minimum score will not be required on the practical activities.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    To pass the subject one must obtain a global score equal to or greater than 5 points. This qualification will result from applying the percentages shown in the table to the different marks that will be obtained along the course.
    In addition, mandatory requirement will be:
    - A minimun score of 4 points in the final test.
    A minimum score will not be required on the practical activities.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
To pass the subject one must obtain a global score equal to or greater than 5 points. This qualification will result from applying the percentages shown in the table to the different marks that will be obtained along the course.
In addition, mandatory requirement will be:
- A minimun score of 4 points in the final test.
A minimum score will not be required on the practical activities.
