Award

The candidate was awarded with the Pedagogical Distinction of Excellence on the Course of Optimal Control of MEMec, in the spring semester of 2014/2015.

Next, several tables with the detailed teaching activities along the career are included. The organization of the information from a topic that covers a large period of the career is organized in temporal reverse order. Thus, more recent information appears fist. In the tables where the pedagogical activities are summarized ,the following columns are present from the left to the right, t: i) academic year; ii) Semester (Spring/Winter), iii) Number of order [Raa] Responsibility on the course (including teaching), [CRaa] Co-responsibility on the course (including teaching), and [Tcc] Teaching on the course, iv) Name of the Course (when taught in Portuguese, the translated name is included). If taught in English, only the course name is present. In both cases, a hyperlink to a webpage where the corresponding material can be found is included, v) Name of the degree(s), vi) Number of the students attending the course and internal IST evaluation, according to the QUC system, and finally vii) role on the course.
