    9. Method of instruction 2 lectures, 1 seminar and 2 laboratories each week.
    10. Assessment

    During the semester:

    • Students must collect a sum of 40 points for the signature. 60 points can be obtained from the mid-term test, 15-15 points can be obtained from the 1st and 2nd homework, and 10 points can be obtained from laboratories. There is no minimum requirement for the mid-term test and the homeworks, only the total number of points is taken into account.
    • Students must not be absent from more than 2 laboratories, and more than 4 practices. Two laboratories can be retaken at the end of the semester.

    Exam period:

    • Written exam, the minimum score is 40%. The final result is calculated from the semester results (25%) and the final exam (75%).
    11. Recaps The mid-term exam can be repeated on an organized repeated mid-term exam during the semester, and on a 2nd organized repeated mid-term in the repetition period following the semester.
    12. Consultations Consultations are by appointment.
