Learning and Teaching Methods
Lectures will be based on powerpoint presentations together with discussions. The computational tools will be used in the computer lab in a student centered tutorial followed by related exercises.
- Lecture notes
- Exercises with solutions
- Interactive access to web based computational simulation tools
- Additional reading material, class notes and useful web sources will be provided to the students by a sharepoint system
Description of exams and course work
In the first part of the written examination students demonstrate by answering questions under time pressure the theoretical knowledge of the topics discussed during the course and their connections. The second part will test their skill in directly applying computational models to solve problems in real nanoscale devices.
The final grade will be based 50% on the first part and 50% on the second part of the written test.
Modulprüfung mit folgenden Bestandteilen:
- 60 Min. schriftliche Prüfung (100%)
There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
