Written examThe student is evaluated through a final written exam. An approved laboratory assignment and passing the written exam yields a final grade (scale is U, 3, 4, 5).
Results regarding approval of laboratory assignment and grading of written exams can be found here.
For the final exam the following rules of thumb apply:
- The lecture notes (PowerPoint hand-outs + blackboard notes) represent the level of which algorithms and methods should be known and understood for the final exam and for your future role as an engineer. Thus, it is more important to understand concepts and principles rather than specific and complicated implementation details. You will acquire implementation skills in due time through your practical work as an engineer.
- Let the list of "suggested reading'' provided be a guide rather than a cook book for using the textbook. Use the lecture notes, the textbook and some common sense to avoid spending significant time on less relevant material. The student should become comfortable with the material such that general concepts and principles are well understood and can be applied.
- Older written exams indicate the type of problems that can possible appear on a written exam. The focus on the written exam will be on principles and theory, while a smaller number of problems requires solutions in the form of program code. In the latter case, it is more important to describe the program structure and functionality than a producing a syntactically correct code.
The following material is permitted to use during the written exam:
