Course completion requirements -

Student participation in all laboratories (30 %).

Delivery of reports to all works in a given timeframe (30 %).

Evaluation of all laboratory works (40 %).

Completion of all tasks and correct completion and submission of all reports.

Successful completion of all prescribed laboratory works is a prerequisite for the course. The overall grade is obtained as the arithmetic average of the grades for the individual laboratory assignments. The grade for a laboratory assignment is obtained as the arithmetic average of the partial grades for (i) the initial examination of the theory and the actual work procedure, (ii) the actual experimental work, and (iii) the quality of the laboratory report.
