Notes

Recommended literature

Conditions for acceptance of the semester

Completion and proper documentation of each laboratory practice and approval thereof by the course instructor. Maximum 2 absences from practices. Students are not allowed to be late from the practicals. Being late counts as an absence. During the semester the students write mid-term tests. Based on the results the students can be exempted from some parts of the colloquium.

Mid-term exams

There is a short test at the beginning of every practical lab in order to assess the preparation of the students. If the student fail two of these tests, every further failure would be counted as an absence. Mid-term test is planned for the 13th week.

Making up for missed classes

Missed practices can be made up during make-up opportunities provided by the department. During each make-up lab, only one missed practice can be executed.

Exam topics/questions
