Teaching Methods (additional text)
The course is open for both campus students and internet students. It will contain 1012 campus lectures, and the main points of the lectures will also be available on internet. 34 internet lectures given as web conference will also be given. All students must participate in 1 practical laboratory exercise to be performed at campus.
Form(s) of Assessment
Written exam, 4 hours
Grading Scale
Alphabetical Scale, A(best) – F (fail)
External/internal examiner
Sensureres av intern sensor (emnelærer(e)). Ekstern sensor benyttes periodisk (hvert 3.  4. år) til retting og utarbeidelse av eksamensoppgaver, neste gang høsten 2013.
Resit examination
Det arrangeres egen kontinuasjonseksamen.
