Teaching method

The theoretical lectures will be given with the help of the data show. Practical questions will be addressed to the students and solve during the lectures. Laboratory works will be preceded by a theoretical introduction before the practical work and followed by the writing of a mini-report about the work done


Evaluation method

It will be necessary to do all laboratory works (with previous preparation) and to submit the proposed questionnaire.

The Theoretical Grade will be obtained through continuous evaluation. Two test will be made. The student should have 8 values minimum in each test. and 9,5 values minimum to pass.

 The Final Grade will be 1/5 (Practical Grade) + 4/5(Theoretical Grade)
