Practice Courses and Labs

These are interactive courses whose assessment is performed during the exercises themselves, through the analysis and discussion of practical cases. At the end of the course, students receive a pass/fail mark. The pass mark, which also takes attendance into account, allows the acquisition of the corresponding CFU.
