Teaching methods

The theoretical aspects will be covered during the lectures; the technical aspects will be approached via exercises in the lab.

Assessment methods and criteria

A two-hour written exam, where the student will be asked to develop a reduced-size database and answer some other questions on the content of the course.

The written test is divided into two sections that can be solved contextually or singularly in each examination session.

Bonus points can be acquired by developing a complementary non-mandatory practical project.
