ADAPTATION TO THE ECTS OF THE SUBJECT ‘CONSTRUCTION OF NON-STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS’ FOR THE FUTURE DEGREE ‘BUILDING ENGINEER’

Due to the imminent creation of the degree “Building Engineer”, it has been thought appropriate to verify if the criteria set by the EEES is being applied to the subject of “Construction of Non-structural Elements” in the third year of Technical Architecture. The main objective of the subject is to ensure that students get knowledge and that they can apply it in a technical and objective way.

For this reason, a programming of tasks orientated towards the acquisition of competences has been developed and the tasks have been associated with an estimated time of dedication on behalf of the student, including both, study and practice. In order to verify if these times are being fulfilled or not, surveys among students are carried out in order to determine if the initial prediction was correct.

Another of the planned objectives is to improve the quality of teaching. Therefore, aspects such as sense of learning, motivation, organization, group interaction, personal attitude, contents, amount and difficult of work, exams and course work will be analyzed. This way, it is expected to identify strengths and weaknesses in order to be able to design a plan for improvement that can be put into practice.
