Final grades

19 julho 2022, 16:58 Nuno Gonçalo Pereira Mira


Final grades, taking into account all the components of the evaluation, are now available in the section Grades. Besides a quantitative grade in the case of projects i've also added a qualitative information about the different parameters that were considering while grading. 

I am scheduling an "exam review" for Thu at 10.30. In case you would like to discuss some aspects or get more individual feedback you just need to join HERE. All groups will receive between today and tomorrow the corrected and graded Reports 4A/B and also the corrected project. 

In the end I want to congratulate all students and I hope that in the end you had learned something from this UC as this is actually the really main objective. 

To those that I won't see on THU i wish a very nice summer break, 

It was a pleasure to have you as students, 

See u soon,

Tomorrow's class will be ONLINE and for project support

22 junho 2022, 16:32 Nuno Gonçalo Pereira Mira


Considering that many of you are now very much focused on the execution of your projects and also considering that, in my view, we have accomplished with success the lecturing of the topics possible to teach in this timeline for the MCF course, i've decided that tomorrow's theoretical class will be ONLINE and to support projects (or to clarify questions with the reports). The link for the class is the same used for project support meetings . 

Please take a moment to confirm whether or not you do have all the chromatograms that you need to move forward with your analysis since I am going to the lab tomorrow and can pick up missing ones (we still miss samples from 4M D7 and a few from yesterday).

See you tomorrow,


Next week labs and project presentations_Updated

18 junho 2022, 20:49 Nuno Gonçalo Pereira Mira


This next week the practical classes start at the regular classroom (that is, not in the lab but in the classroom indicated in schedule). We will go to the lab near the end to take the final sample point and also to make measurements of cellular viability.

As for project discussion, this was scheduled for JULY 7th between 3-5pm in the Civil Engineering building (Congress Hall). You will find placards to place your posters (size of the posters A0). In the projects section i've included an example of the sections that your poster should include. Feel totally free to make the poster as you see fit, however, please try to have the different sections indicated. Remember, be appealing in the poster because you will also provide a written text file with your results and discussion. 

The deadline for delivering all the materials (make a zip file containing pdf poster, results&discussion, other computational files relevant for the project) concerning the project is JULY 3rd. I will start corrections on July 4th. 

Report 2B, which you will start in the practical class next week, should be delivered until June 29 (the results of HPLC samples recovered until thus far are already available in the webpage dedicated to lab4) . Of course everything can be delivered earlier. Both submissions are now open in Fenix. 

See you on Monday,

Due to a conflict in schedule i will need to ask all students attending tomorrows LAB class to start at 8 am and not at 9 am. I am also unable to make the usual Zoom meeting for projects, but i can do it later, at 13.15 pm. 

Sorry about these inconveniences,
