Requirements:

Assessment requirements:

Active lab attendance including pre-lab homework. All lab exercise assignments submitted by the following lab session.

Examination conditions:

The final exam is closed-book, made of a written test based on content of lectures and laboratory exercises including assigned individual study and home preparation. The final test score is included into the total course score if at least a half of the maximum points of the written test is reached.

The mid-term exam is closed-book, made of a written test based on content of lectures and laboratory exercises before the week of the exam (including assigned individual study and home preparation). The final test score is included into the total course score if at least a half of the maximum points of the written test is reached.

Grading according to the ECTS scale (100 points at most):

Mid-term exam: 20%

Final exam: 80%
