Method of work
Students, in agreement with the teacher, have to develop their own work plan at the beginning of the semester. This plan should have several phases, and in each of them, some form of report or progress of the project that allows monitoring progress should be developed. Compliance with this plan by at least 75% will be necessary for the student to submit the final report.
