Teaching methods
Lectures and seminars in full-time study, tutorials in part-time study. Minimal required participation is 75% on seminars in full-time study and 50% on tutorials in part-time study. Students with lower than required participation have to fulfill additional study duties.
Assessment methods
The course is completed with a credit and exam. The condition for granting the credit is the elaboration of the tasks assigned to the exercises. The relevant teacher will specify the conditions. The exam consist of a written part, where students should write a program, procedure or function, and a verbal part. Knowledge of programming language, algorithms and programming techniques according to the lecture is required.
