The new European Framework on Higher Education proposed in the Bologna Process requires modifications in the structure of university studies and in the teaching methodology. The programs have to be redefined according to the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) to clearly inform the students about the assessment strategy being used for the course or subject. The EHEA, as established by The Bologna Process and supported by Tuning Project, intends to make plans of studies comparable, compatible, and transparent in all the European countries by developing reference points at any subject area level. The curriculum is completely modified and extended in order to include the specific competences and all the activities proposed must be included in the subject evaluation. It is also essential to establish the schedule of activities/tasks according to the program development. The new teaching methods involve the use of specialized software for simulations or modeling.
