Teaching method

Exposition of the fundamental theoretical concepts to solve problems in theoretical classes lasting 2 hours. Resolution of exercises selected in a problem book in practical classes of three hours.

Evaluation method

The evaluation can be carried out continuously over the course through three theoretical / practical tests. If the student fails this evaluation model or decide to improve their score obtained can always turn to a final exam. All students are admitted to the final exam.

Continuous assessment comprises three tests (T1, T2 and T3) and the approval is based on the following formula:

0.2 * T1 + 0.4 * T2 + 0.4 * T3> = 9.5 where T1, T2 and T3 range from 0 to 20.

All tests are scheduled for a specific date and time in order to meet all students at the same time.

If the student is not successful in this continuous assessment component to its final approval will depend only on a final exam worth between 0 and 20. The student is approved with a minimum grade of 9,5val Exam.
