Academic Year 2020/2021 - 1° Year

5 CFU - 2° Semester

**STATISTICS**Method of teaching course:

Lectures, active participation of students through questions, preparation of a questionnaire for data collection and subsequent data collection and exercises.**Computer engineering & Bioimaging**The student will be introduced to the main methods for the generation of bioimaging.

**STATISTICS**VALUTATION: Writing and oral exam

**Computer engineering & Bioimaging**The module includes lectures and tutorials.

Should teaching be carried out in mixed mode or remotely, it may be necessary to introduce changes with respect to previous statements, in line with the programme planned and outlined in the syllabus.
