Assessment methods:
To meet the requirements for credit is needed participation at seminars, completion of the interim written tests of 80%, and preparing two semester projects. The exam is in written form (60 minutes), where the student has to solve an example related to vehicle testing, as well as to answer questions from at least 60%. Next step in examination procedures is oral.
