Planned Learning Activities and Teaching Methods

The teaching method is to explain the subjects to the students face to face. The student to be able to identify the engineering problems explained in the lesson and to be able to solve problems via midterm and final examinations, to be able to report the experimental results associated with theoretical subjects at laboratory and to be able to compare these results constitute the learning method.
