Compulsory laboratory exercises: 8 Compulsory hand-in assignments: 5 out of 8
Completion of mandatory lab assignments are to be made at the times and in the groups that are assigned and published. 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 assignments on time or not having them approved will result in barring from taking the exam of the course.
Weekly digital lecturing (videos or on the campus with streaming), 2 hours guided problem-solving and 4 hours laboratory work through the semester. Each lab exercise consist of a theoretical pre-lab and 4 hours lab work. The pre-lab has to be carried out before the work in the lab can start. Mandatory work demands (such as hand in assignments, lab- assignments, projects, etc) must be approved by subject teacher three weeks ahead of examination date.
