Required prerequisite knowledge
|Home exam||1/1||A - F|
- a description of the method and simulation used in the research project reported
- a critical review of the results and conclusion of the study.
This task must be approved before the exam at the end of the semester. Unsatisfied terms in relation to presentation means that the student must submit a written assignment according to the specific guidelines for admission to the exam in the course.
