Additional information on mode of examinationDie Schlussnote entsteht aus einem obligatorischen Leistungselement (50 %) und einer mündlichen Prüfung (50 %). Als obligatorisches Leistungselement wird in Gruppen eine existierende Holzkonstruktion untersucht. Die Ergebnisse müssen schriftlich und in einem Vortrag zusammengefasst werden. Die Vorträge werden im Rahmen eines eintägigen Seminars in der zweiten oder dritten Kalenderwoche gehalten (Daten werden zu Semesterbeginn festgelegt). Die Teilnahme am Seminar gehört zum Leistungselement und ist daher obligatorisch. In den Tagen anschliessend an das Seminar finden die mündlichen Prüfungen statt.
