Prerequisites for registration:
Assesment methods:
Laboratory exercises are evaluated with 5 points for each submitted protocol, a total of 40 points. The final written examination will be made from the calculation exercises, from which it is possible to obtain 20 points. The student can get 40 points from the final exam. To obtain credits, the student must complete all laboratory exercises, must have no more than 2 absences from computational exercises and must have at least 56 points.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
