Student Assessment
1) To each group of 3 students, a project is assigned. The written essay of the project is examined and gets a grade. A period of at least one month is given to each group to carry out the project and write the essay. The essay must be submitted 10 days before the oral examination of the students. 2) The students, in groups of 5, may attend an optional lab exercise. A written essay is submitted after the execution of the lab exercise. 3) The students are examined orally. 4) the final grade of the course is deduced as a combination of 1), 2) and 3) with 2) having the largest weight.
