Required prerequisite knowledge
|Individual written exam - Matlab||2/5||3 hours||A - F||Basic calculator specified in general exam regulations. |
|Folder evaluation||3/5||A - F||All. |
Matlab: individual written exam with grades A-F. Aid: Counts for 2/5 of the total grade.
Folder evaluation: Participation in mandatory lectures, excursions and process calculations. Project work with report and oral presentation in groups. Grades A-F. Counts 3/5 of the total grade. Both parts must be passed to pass the subject.
The student may take written exam when mandatory assignment in Matlab is approved.
Participation in mandatory lectures, excursions and oral presentation of the project work.
