2. Pre-Requisites

It is recommended that students have previously followed and passed the courses "Components and Circuits", "Electronics Devices", "Electronics I", "Electronics II", and "Digital Electronics Systems".
More precisely, students are required to undersand and handle basic concepts about electronics components, analysis and design of electronics circuits, power conversion, and digital electronics systems

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

This elective course, taught in the penultimate semester of the degree program, aims to integrate the knowledge acquired in the areas of electronics and projects. For this purpose, those knowledge will be applied to a guided design project of a Printed Circuit Board.

Throughout the course, basic knowledg acquired in the subjects "Electronic Devices", "Electronics I", and "Digital Electronics Systems" will be applied more directly.

Customized design of printed circuit boards and their manufacturing process, as well as a basic knowledge of electronic technology, open a wide range of professional opportunities in the field of engineering

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Test 60.00% 60.00% Lab. The work developed, the defense of the solution achieved, and the time spent will be considered
Test 40.00% 40.00% Project (and homework). The work developed, its complexity, and the defense of the solution achieved will be considered
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 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. 13.2) 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:
    To pass the course, it is mandatory to submit and defense all lab activities and obtain a grade higher than 4 points (out of 10) in each compulsory activity. In any case, the final grade must be equal or higher than 5 points (out of 10).
    In the case of failing the course, the average mark on the laboratory activities (if it is equal or higher than 5 points) will be maintained for the next offering, unless the student voluntarily decides to retake this set of activities
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    To pass the course, it is mandatory to submit and defense all lab activities and obtain a grade higher than 4 points (out of 10) in each compulsory activity. In any case, the final grade must be equal or higher than 5 points (out of 10).
    In the case of failing the course, the average mark on the laboratory activities (if it is equal or higher than 5 points) will be maintained for the next offering, unless the student voluntarily decides to retake this set of activities

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
Students will be able to recover the assessable activities
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Students will be able to recover the assessable activities by means of an exam on the date set by the management of the Centre
