Assessment Criteria

Students ability to make calculations in course outcomes are evaluated using 1 midterm and 1 final examination. Their ability to use the information and capture the concepts in applications are evaluated in 10 computer laboratory experiments for which they have to prepare software programs to solve various electrical engineering problems. Midterm consist 20%, Homeworks consists 15%, Laboratory consists 15% and final examination consists 50% of the final grade
