Course completion requirements -
Last update: Staš Martin Ing. Ph.D. (30.01.2018)

The condition for completion of the course is the successful completion of all prescribed laboratory works. The overall mark is obtained as the arithmetic mean of the marks for each laboratory work. In the assessment of each laboratory work, following criteria are taken into account: the student's initial knowledge of the theoretical background of the work and work procedure verified by an initial examination, own work and the quality of the laboratory protocol.
