The programming language used in this course is primarily Go (golang) along with some C.
Required prerequisite knowledge
Recommended previous knowledge
|Written exam||3/5||4 hours||A - F||None permitted|
|Programming project||2/5||A - F|
A student that fails the project work must take this part again next time the subject is lectured.
Completion of mandatory lab assignments are to be made at the times and in the groups that are assigned. Absence due to illness or for other reasons must be communicated as soon as possible to the laboratory personnel. One cannot expect that provisions for completion of the lab assignments at other times are made unless prior arrangements with the laboratory personnel have been agreed upon.
Failure to complete the assigned labs on time or not having them approved will result in being barred from sitting for the exams.
