Time and location

The course is implemented on August 26, 2024 - October 11, 2024.

Learning materials and recommended literature

Lecture handout and exercises are available via Moodle.

Teaching methods

The course covers lessons in the classroom and home exercises. Lessons are held only in the classroom.

Practical training and working life connections

The content of the course aims to be working life connected.

Exam dates and retake possibilities

The course exam dates and deadlines for home exercises are announced in the first lecture. You are allowed to do resit exam two times during the semester.

Alternative completion methods

The approval procedures are described in the degree regulations and the study guide. The teacher of the course provides additional information about possible alternative course completion procedures.

Student workload

Contact teaching 28 h and independent study 53 h.

Further information for students

The course is evaluated on the basis of the exam or exams and points collected from calculation exercises.

In the evaluation, the emphasis is on participating in contact teaching and completing calculation exercises, but it is also possible to complete the course by exam. In contact teaching, the attendance requirement is 80%. The exam will be held in the classroom only. There is no remote exam option with this implementation.

Participation in the course must be confirmed by attending the first lesson or by informing the course teacher of your participation by September 1, 2024.
