CB1 - That students have demonstrated knowledge in an area of study that starts from the basis of general secondary education, and is usually found at a level that, although supported by advanced textbooks, also includes some aspects that involve knowledge from the forefront of their field of study.
CB2 - That students know how to apply their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional way and possess the skills that are usually demonstrated by developing and defending arguments and solving problems within their area of study.
CB3 - That students have the ability to gather and interpret relevant data (usually within their study area) to make judgments that include reflection on important issues of social, scientific or ethical nature.
CB4 - That students are capable of communicating information, ideas, problems and solutions to both specialised and non-specialised audiences.
CB5 - That students have developed the learning skills required to undertake further study with a high degree of autonomy.
