Assessment Criteria

Student's understanding concepts 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 laboratory experiments for which they have to prepare technical reports. Their abilitiy to bind the knowledge for design and implementation is to be evaluated by a team project. Midterm consist 15%, Team Project 15%, Laboratory assignments 20% and final examination consists 50% of the final grade
