Assessment methods:
Credit, Examination. Credit is obtained after success in writen tests and success in defense of 10 laboratory protocols.
Protocol defence is focused on teoretical and formal correctness and demonstration of practical and theoretical skills and knowledges. Are written every week and are focussed on talked over topics. Examination is oral, student draws 2-3 questions, depends on writen laboratory protocols. Questions list is published on internet. One question is focused on solution of given theoretical problem.
