- Assiduity (A) To get approved at this course, students should attend to - at least - 80% of the theoretical and practical classes

- Practical Project (P) The practical projects of this course weights 50% (10/20) of the final mark

- To get approved at the course, a minimal mark of 5/20 should be obtained in the practical project part;

- The pratical project mark is conditioned to an individual presentation and discussion by each student;

- Written Test (F) Friday, June 4th, 2022, 14:00. Room 6.17

- Mark (M) M = (A >= 0.8) * (P * 10/20 + F * 10/20)

- Admission to Exams Students with M >= 6 are admitted to final exams

- The practical projects mark is considered in all exam epochs;
