Additional information on mode of examinationThe written final exam (taking place during the examination session) covers all contents of this course, including lectures, exercises, and programming assignments. It counts 50% towards the final grade.

Additionally, there will be a compulsory continuous performance assessment in the form of a programming assignment that is broken down into five projects to be discussed and assigned during the course of the semester. Out of the five projects, at least four must be submitted two weeks after assignment. The best four submitted projects count 50% towards the final grade (12.5% each). These programming projects, which are integrated with the lectures and exercises, require the student to understand and apply the course material, and involve programming in Matlab.
Written aidsOne hand-written page of notes/formulae is allowed. No further material is allowed.
