In order to guarantee the correct individualized attention to the student, the tutoring schedule will be arranged with the interested party by e-mail.

2. Pre-Requisites

The student must have acquired the knowledge imparted in the subjects of mathematics, physics and graphic expression.

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

Knowledge of classical mechanics, together with the principles of operation and analysis of mechanisms, will provide the necessary skills to solve problems related to the analysis and design of machines and mechanisms. On the other hand, the subject helps to enhance essential skills in engineering such as spatial vision, and the vision of movement; as well as the acquisition of language and technical culture that facilitates communication in the workplace of industrial engineering.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 15.00% 15.00% Theoretical-practical written test.
In non-continuous evaluation, a global exam different from the continuous evaluation will assess all the evaluable formative activities as a whole.
Final test 70.00% 70.00% In continuous evaluation will consist of the completion of exercises proposed throughout the course.
Laboratory sessions 15.00% 15.00% Continuous evaluation will consist of the completion of exercises or works proposed throughout the course related to the laboratory practices.
Non-continuous evaluation will consist of the specific resolution of several exercises or assignments related to the laboratory practices of similar characteristics.
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 final mark will be the result of applying the evaluation system described above. In order to successfully pass the course, a mark equal or higher than 5 out of 10 must be obtained.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The final mark will be the result of applying the evaluation system described above. In order to successfully pass the course, a mark equal or higher than 5 out of 10 must be obtained.
