Mid-term exam, laboratory practice and/or homework supported by project completion, and final exam are the monitored, and points earning education. Mid-term exam and laboratory practice are without correction eventuality. Final exam has two additional correction eventualities. The minimal number of points that can be obtained from the final exam is 25. Otherwise, no points will be assigned to a student.
Written mid-term exam and submitting 2 projets in due dates.
Requirements for class accreditation are not defined.
