Description of exams and course work
The written exam is composed of calculation exercises and short questions about the entire lecture contents; it serves as an examination of the basic understanding of mechanisms and structures of bio-molecular electronics, and of present standard techniques to build basic systems based on those devices.
There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
