Teaching Methods (additional text)

The course is open for both campus students and internet students. It will contain 10-12 campus lectures, and the main points of the lectures will also be available on internet. 3-4 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, 5 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.

Re-sit examination

Det arrangeres egen kontinuasjonseksamen.

Examination support
