Context

The module ?Laboratori de xarxes i projectes de telecomunicació? is addressed to students on the 4th year of the degree 'Grau en Enginyeria Telemàtica' and to students on the 5th year of the double-degree 'Grau en Enginyeria Telemàtica i en Matemàtiques'. Its main objective is to deepen, from a global perspective, into the skills defined in the telecomunications block of the common module as well as into the skills defined in the telematic networks block of the telematic specific module. Along with the subjects ?Laboratori d?Electrònica?, ?Laboratori d?Informàtica? and ?Laboratori de Xarxes, Aplicacions i Serveis Telemàtics? and the ?Treball de Final de Grau?, it conforms de practical module of the degree.

2
Assessment Reports Large group (G)

Students will develop a telematics engineering technical project. The lecturer will continuously monitor and guide students in the development of their project. Given the cooperative-project approach of this subject, mentoring will be developed in working-teams, according to the schedule set by the lecturer. This way, the skills corresponding to the telecommunications block and to the telematic networks block, as well as their ability to solve problems and to develop projects, will be assessed. There exist the possibility of co-assessment among students to asses this activity.

Specific risks and protective measures

The learning activities of this course do not entail specific health or safety risks for the students and therefore no special protective measures are needed.

Student learning assessment

There are two itineraries:

- Itinerary A is the standard itinerary. To join this itinerary:

  • a minimum attendance of 80% is required
  • work must be developed in teams
  • continuous assessment throughout the term

- Itinerary B is only available for part-time students. In this case:

  • no minimum attendance is required
  • students can choose to work individually
  • final assessment at the end of the term

Assessment will consist of technical project (group-mentoring, report & presentation), laboratory assessment and an exam in the examination period.

Regarding the technical project (it applies to students from both itineraries):

1) Group-mentoring:

  • Students will deliver their assignments corresponding to the technical project throughout the term, according to the schedule set by the lecturer.
  • Team-mentoring with the team members and the lecturer will be performed for each assignment/deliverable.
  • The lecutrer will continuously assess the work of the itinerary-A students throughout the term.
  • This activity is non-retrievable.

2) Reports-presentations:

  • At the end of the term, students will have to deliver a final version of their whole technical project (report), according to the schedule set by the lecturer.
  • They will also have to present their technical project in class.
  • This activity is non-retrievable.

Regarding laboratory assessment (it applies to itinerary A students):

  • The lecutrer will continuously assess the work of the itinerary-A students throughout the term.
  • This activity is non-retrievable.

Regarding the examination (it applies to students from both itineraries):

  • It is required to obtain a mark greater or equal than 5.
  • In case of failure, the students will have the opportunity to take a second exam in the extraordinary examination period.

Below are details for each assessment procedure, criteria and their weight in the rating of the course for both itineraries.

In accordance with article 33 of the Academic Regulations, "regardless of the disciplinary procedure that may be followed against the offending student , the demonstrably fraudulent performance of any of the evaluation elements included in the teaching guides of the subjects will lead, at the discretion of the teacher, to an undervaluation in the qualification that may suppose the qualification of "suspense 0" in the annual evaluation of the subject".
