Learning methods and activities

Additional information: The theoretical basis will be discussed in lecture. Students will receive assignments to be solved. Laboratory tests are carried out in the laboratory. For web students, 1 compulsory laboratory laboratory is required at Gjøvik during the semester. Mandatory work requirements are included. In case of less than 6 students registered, the course will take place as a self-study with guidance.

Further on evaluation

If fail course must be re-taken. A new portfolio must be submitted.
