Methods used and evaluation

The pedagogy implemented in the different modules is adapted to the different learning objectives. Active teaching methods are favoured, and co-modal methods are developed. Group sizes are small, allowing for privileged interaction, both among peers and with professionals and teacher-researchers.
The programme is assessed through two main methods of validation:
Continuous assessment: assessments are carried out throughout the course in the form of individual or group projects to be handed in;
The professional dissertation: submission of a written document and oral defence of the dissertation before a jury composed of the academic tutor and the company tutor.
At the end of the course and after validation of the continuous assessment and the professional dissertation, the certification is awarded to the participants. If certain modules have not been validated and therefore the credits have not been obtained, the student can take a specialised test to catch up on these credits during the periods provided for this purpose.
