Teaching methods

Lectures, synchronous remote delivery will be guaranteed. Based on the evolution of the health emergency COVID19, the option of the theaching activity in presence will be evaluated.

Assessment methods

Oral exams. The exams will be carried out either in presence or in remote, depending on the evolution of the COVID19 situation.
