Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

The module examination is based on a presentation (90 minutes) and a well prepared handout sheet (ca 4 pages). Every student presents a topic and discusses it with the other participants. Therefore regular attendance in the seminar course is mandatory. By giving a talk, discussing the topic and regular attendance students learn necessary presentation and discussion techniques.

Exam Repetition

There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
