Compulsory Lab. work , Compulsory theoretical exercises
3 laboratory assignments (2 of must be approved to access final exam).
6 theoretical assignments (3 of 5 must be approved to access final exam. One is optional).
Compulsory work requirements (theoretical and laboratory exercises) must be approved by the instructor before given deadlines (stated during the semester). All compulsory work must be completed and approved within 3 weeks before the exam.
Laboratory assignments must be completed at the times published and in the groups that are assigned and published via the learning management system. Absence due to illness or for other reasons must be reported as soon as possible to the instructor or laboratory supervisor.
