The Multimedia Systems course is considered BASIC and has six credits.
It is taught in the second year of the Multimedia Engineering degree and is part of the Project-Based Learning work plan. It'll be extended throughout the rest of the courses of the degree.
The course aims to create a global framework in which the contents of the rest of the subjects will be structured. Therefore, it will have elementary contents that will be developed in-depth by the matters of the degree that will be taught later.
Students taking the course will have to carry out a series of projects starting from scratch, facing for the first time the specific problems that will be part of the professional possibilities of multimedia engineering.
The main objective of the course is, more than finishing the projects successfully, to learn how to plan them, understand their complexity, organize the necessary resources to undertake them, and detect the essential knowledge that the students DO NOT YET HAVE but that will be developed in other subjects, thus explainning their existence.
Therefore, students will not face the traditional learning sequence "know contents-practice-account" but rather "face a problem-find the solution-learn what is necessary for it-analyze the result" in a trial-and-error process that puts the student in a real world context.
