2. Pre-Requisites

To have previously passed the basic module.

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

The use and continuous development of new materials in today's society leads to the need to know in detail its fundamental characteristics and technical features. In this subject, the internal structure and different properties of metallic, ceramic, polymeric materials are studied. All of them are frequently used in the different areas of the Degree of Chemistry, both in applications and fundamental research. Due to the object of study of Materials Science, its relationship with other subjects of this Degree is very broad: structure and electrical properties of polymers (organic chemistry), metals and ionic conductors (inorganic chemistry), diagrams and phase transitions (Thermodynamics Chemistry), mechanical properties of materials (Chemical Engineering), ... This subject is particularly useful also for the technical field, since it allows us to select the appropriate materials for each industrial application, or know and control the framework where different phenomena are developed by chemists in advanced research.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Mid-term tests 70.00% 100.00% The subject is divided into two blocks with theoretical and practical contents (exercises). The teacher
of each block will indicate in detail the weight of the different sections for the evaluation of the written test or exam.
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 30.00% 0.00% Depending on the teacher of each block of the subject, the number of interested students and the time available, the resolution and presentation of practical cases by the student will be proposed. These activities will be voluntary and their correct execution may suppose between 10-30% of the total (according to the teacher's criteria to be detailed in the first classes). For those students not interested in these training activities, this percentage will be added to the final test
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:
    The exam is divided into two parts: metallic materials (subjects 1-6) and ceramic and polymeric materials (subjects 7-15), which will be evaluated on different dates.
    For the evaluation of each part there will be a written test that will consist of theoretical and practical questions, related to the content of the lectures and the practical exercises solved in class, respectively. The proportion or importance of these questions in each part will depend on the teacher and will be detailed at the beginning of classes. The maximum score in each exam will be 8 points with a required minimum of 4 points to pass each exam, and consequently, to add the the grade obtained in the other practical activities or talks (maximum of 2 points).
    Subsequently, the mark of the complete subject will be the average of the results obtained in the two parts, provided that each of them exceeds a minimum of 5 points out of 10.
    In case of passing only a part of the complete exam, it can be eliminated for the extraordinary call.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    On the official date of the ordinary call, the two written tests will be carried out jointly, corresponding to the blocks of the subject. The grade and percentage of the activities carried out during the continuous evaluation (2 points / 20%) will be replaced by additional theoretical questions about the contents of the subject.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
Students who have not passed the ordinary call must attend the extraordinary call. According to what they consider, the student can take the full exam to re-evaluate the whole subject, or only the failed part. In this extraordinary call, the same evaluation criteria will be maintained as in the ordinary exam, as well as the exam format (type of questions or exercises).
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
The evaluation criteria will be applied the same as in the ordinary call.
