Theory Classes


- Theoretical classes will take place remotely. To attend the classes, this is the zoom chat room you should join.

- According to the instructions provided by the IST, the classes will start 10 minutes after the scheduled start time, and will end at the scheduled end time.

- Weekly, there will be two different theory classes. The same class will be repeated for the students on each campus. Nevertheless, students are free to virtually attend any of such classes. The course planning currently published on the web site helps you to check the dates where the same class will be given.
- To encourage student participation in classes, the videos of the theoretical classes will not be published on the website; only the content slides will be made available.

Lab Classes


- Lab classes will take place on-site, on a mixed regime, i.e., for each lab shift, some students will be able to attend the class face-to-face while the rest of them will only be allowed to participate remotely via Zoom.  Due to the capacity constraints imposed by the IST, only a limited number of students will be allowed to be physically present in the lab (and they all must wear a mask and keep social distance).

- To encourage the face-to-face participation of as many students as possible, each lab shift will be unrolled into two sets (A and B). Each student will then have the option to enroll only in shifts either of type A or of type B. Students in shift A should be present in the odd academic weeks and students in shift B should be present in the even academic weeks.

- Note that this division into groups is only intended to decrease the concentration of people above the capacity of the various spaces. It does not exist any prohibition whatsoever for the community to be on IST campi based on these shift groups. Everyone is only asked to comply with the capacity indicated for the spaces and must leave them when the capacity is exceeded and according to the defined groups and academic week.

- Despite these rules, it is not mandatory for the students to physically attend the lab classes. They are entirely free to decide to participate exclusively via Zoom (or not to participate at all). The teacher will provide assistance for both the students located in the room as well as for the students connected remotely.

- As in previous years, the students will have to form groups of three elements in order to perform a set of lab assignments. They are entirely free to form groups regardless of the shift and set (A or B) where each member is enrolled. The only constraint to bear in mind is that all members of a group must be enrolled on the same campus. More details about the group formation process will be provided in the first theoretical class and on the course website in due time.
