Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2019-20

The course of Multimedia Systems Design is taught in the first semester of the third year and is mandatory.

In step that subject is approached from the analysis previously performed (in the subject AESS) the design and implementation of multimedia systems specified. This implies that the student must train in the discipline of design software, that means knowing and applying existing techniques for specifying the architecture, design patterns in the different layers and user interface design of multimedia applications to be developed. And besides, this training design has to be complemented by training on a specific platform, in this case .NET, which will require training in the use of tools, languages and development techniques used. Teachers will try to encourage and train students in the fundamentals of the platform.

The training will be done through a directed learning projects, which means that students will have to participate in a project with others, acquire social and communication skills necessary to carry it out, and use existing herraminentas for a software project is carried out collaboratively.
