Controlled instruction

Mid-term exam (incl. test if it is declared), laboratory practice supported by homework (or project work) and final exam are the monitored, and points earning, education.
Mid-term exam and laboratory practice (supported by the homework) are without correction eventuality. Points for homework may be obtained at the last laboratory class after successful modelling of all laboratory statements. Final exam has two additional correction eventualities.

Exam prerequisites

Requirements for class accreditation are not defined.
