Evaluation Methodology
The assessment comprises two components: i) laboratory practice and ii) project. The practical component has a weight of 40% and consists in the assessment of practical work carried out throughout the semester, individually or in teams of students. The project component has a weight of 60%, and comprises the assessment of the project report and the oral presentation. The two components have a minimum score of 10 points. All assessment components are mandatory.
