Description of exams and course work
There will be an oral exam of 25 minutes duration. Therein the achievement of the competencies given in section learning outcome is tested exemplarily at least to the given cognition level using comprehension questions and sample calculations.
For example an assignment in the exam might be:
- What are magneto-resistive effects?
- What are functional materials and how are they technologically relevant?
- What combination of properties are involved in the “figure of merit” of these materials?
- How do the physical properties depend on crystallographic direction?
- How does symmetry influence the physical properties of smart materials?
- How are these properties described mathematically?
Participation in the exercise classes is strongly recommended since the exercises prepare for the problems of the exam and rehearse the specific competencies.
The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester.
