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. If the student fails two of these entrance tests every further failure would count 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 made up.
