  • B4_That students can convey information, ideas, problems and solutions to both specialized and non-specialized audiences


  • B5_That students have developed those learning skills necessary to undertake further studies with a high degree of autonomy


Specific skills
  • EIS1_Ability to develop, maintain and evaluate software services and systems that meet all user requirements and that behave reliably and efficiently, are affordable to develop and maintain and comply with quality standards, applying theories, principles, methods and software engineering practices


  • EIS2_Ability to assess customer needs and specify software requirements to meet those needs, reconciling conflicting goals, by seeking acceptable compromises, within the limitations of cost, time, the existence of already developed systems and of the organizations themselves


  • EIS4_Ability to identify and analyze problems and design, develop, implement, verify and document software solutions based on adequate knowledge of current theories, models and techniques

The student will be introduced to mobile device programming. It is a subject guided by examples where the student will carry out many practical exercises.

The student must have consolidated knowledge of the engineering subjects of software 1 and 2, the software laboratory 1, and the web laboratory


  1. Introduction to Mobile Application Programming (Android)
  2. Mobile GUIs
  3. Multimedia applications
  4. Execution threads
  5. Access to local and remote data
  6. Use external libraries.
  7. Consumption of remote services

Evaluation system

The final grade will be obtained from the practices (3 assignments), class participation, and a final paper with the following weighting:

  • Class attendance (of problems): 10%
  • Internships 50%
  • Individual final work 40%

The practices and individual final work have a minimum grade of 3.5 (out of 10). All deliveries are mandatory in order to pass the subject.

Test rules

For each activity, the teacher will report on the particular rules and conditions that govern them.

Practices are delivered in groups of a maximum of three people.

The final work must be done individually.

One-on-one activities presuppose the student's commitment to carry them out individually. All activities in which the student does not comply with this commitment will be considered suspended, regardless of their role (origin or destination).

It is optional for teachers to accept or not deliveries outside the deadlines indicated. In the event that these late deliveries are accepted, it is up to the teacher to decide whether to apply a penalty and the amount thereof.



In the make-up call, you can choose to approve the individual final project (maximum grade 5) and only students who have failed the subject can access it.

Students who have obtained a not presented (NP) in the ordinary call and those who have passed the subject cannot apply.
