1 - BACKGROUND
The "Information Description, Storage and Retrieval" unit assumes as its context the existence of large collections of heterogeneous information which needs to be organized, described, stored and retrieved.
2 - SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES
On completion of this course, the student should be able to:
Knowledge and practice in programming languages for application development.
Lectures include theoretical presentation of the course subjects and practical sessions where proposed research topics are discussed with the students and practical coursework reported.
Physical sciences > Computer science > Informatics
Distributed evaluation without final exam
|Description||Type||Time (hours)||Date of conclusion|
|1st Project Delivery||Project Work||15||14/10/2016|
|2nd Project Delivery||Project Work||30||11/11/2016|
|3rd Project Delivery||Project Work||30||16/12/2016|
The course has a practical component which results from the execution of projects, to be delivered up to the due dates established in the course plan. The students pass the course if they achieve 50% in each component of the project work. Success in the course also requires 40% in each intermediate written test.
Working students and students with similar status who are not required to participate in class must present the evolution of their work in the time periods defined with teachers. These students are also required to take the mini-tests, deliver their practical work and participate in the presentation sessions.
The final grade is computed using the formula: GRADE= 60% Projects + 40% Tests.
The Projects component is the result of the practical evaluation and can be obtained:
The project and its workplan must be validated by the course instructors.
None. All students have to complete the projects and present them as scheduled.
Distributed evaluation, performed during the semester, is required of all students, regardless of their enrolment status.
Improving the classification requires a new enrolment in the course, taking the course projects and tests again.
