COURSES - TUTORSHIPS
Tutorships guide the students in their learning process. To do this, the ICAEEC courses mainly use audiovisual resources, virtual classrooms and the forums of each subject.
Tutorships will be conducted in English or in Spanish.
Key elements of distance learning are:
- Audiovisual resources: Subject specific sessions on each module will be given by the professor and recorded for viewing at your discretion.
- Virtual classrooms: This is where you will find the necessary materials and content to navigate through the course. You will find the teaching and exercise materials, software, forums, etc. here. In order to use this tool, it is necessary to have an internet connection.
- Forums: Here, students have the chance to consult and interact with each other and the tutors (available in English or Spanish). This is a very powerful tool if used properly and in accordance with the rules. Lots of questions and doubts can be answered and clarified through the forums.
- Base texts: The main training material of the courses. They are specially created for the program, and combined with a selected bibliography to study. These texts are for Application and Practical courses as well as being part of "hands on" exercises.
- Software: Students will have access to educational software licenses to use throughout the application and practical training of the course. All the software included is 3D based and has all the elements needed to complete the various types of analysis throughout the course
- Self-evaluation exercises: Test yourself and track your progress using these exercises and related solutions available in the base texts. Check your acquired subject knowledge and see where you need to improve.
- Practical Application Exercises (PAEs): These exercises are part of the various modules’ training materials and are accessible through the virtual classroom. These exercises should be solved and submitted to the professor for review.
Tutorships will primarily be available through the virtual classroom, although it will be possible to contact the course teaching staff by telephone, email or in person during normal office hours. Each subject will offer four hours of tutorships per week. More information about this will be provided by the individual professors. The professors’ contact information is located in the specific branch guides.
