This course examines wired and programmed automation systems, which, based on electronics and scheduling of management tasks, permit taking advantage of conditioned signals from sensors to execute orders that result in the required operation of hydraulic and energy installations by actuators, providing the base for acquisition, supervision, and control systems they are connected to.
The course delves into automation systems wired and programmed, building on electronics and irrigation scheduling and leverages the conditioned signals from the sensors to the execution of orders that result in the required performance of the hydraulic and energy by the actuators, providing the basis for systems acquisition, monitoring and control with which it links.

Methodology and grading
- Solving exercises and problems: Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.
- - 40% Test theory concepts
- 60% Practical projects
The evaluation of the subject will be, considering the characteristics of the same and in order to encourage active student participation throughout the course, combining the completion of questionnaires, tasks, exercises and problems, with a final written exam.
Evaluation criteria for each of these activities is as follows:
1. Questionnaires on the subject in each teaching unit and fear, and whose weight on the final grade for the course will be a 40%.
For each teaching unit and issue a test between 10 and 30 multiple-choice questions (4 options), usually with a single real answer (in the event that there is more than one right will be notified to begin the test) will be scheduled. All questions have the same value in the unit rating of each test. As you advance in the subject deadline for completion of the test it opens. The opening and closing period the students will be notified. After the date of closure NOT be testing. Each test can be performed only once. The test is carried out on an on-line, and maximum execution time has previously been noted. The total number of tests of this method is adapted to the number of topics covered during the course. All tests have the same value for the status of that activity, so that the overall mark of this part will be the result of the arithmetic mean of the theoretical tests.
2. Performing practical tasks, exercises, or problems whose weight on the final grade for the course will be a 40%.
For each teaching unit a series of practical tasks, which consist in solving exercises, problems or other activities are scheduled. Also a deadline to be met the same is indicated. Each practical task is scored on 10 points. In the event that the teachers accept delivery of a task after the deadline, the task score may have some penalty (ranging between 20% and 30% over the initial 10). Exercises and tasks must be resolved individually, rewarding yourself originality and degree of contribution made, so that penalize those who are detected that are copied from foreign material or each other. The tasks proposed by block and thematic units will have the same value for the status of that activity, so that the overall mark of this part will be the result of the arithmetic mean of the evidence raised by the number of subjects.
3. At the end of the semester an exam on the theoretical and practical contents of the subject will be. The final exam will take place on the dates and official announcements set by the school secretary (June and September). The test will mean up to 20% of the final grade for the course will consist of solving a multiple choice questionnaire response. This questionnaire will be between 30 and 40 multiple choice questions with four alternatives, one true. All questions have the same value in the final grade.
To average between the various activities that make the subject a minimum of 4 points is required of 10 in each part (questionnaires, tasks and final exam).
