Assessment Criteria

Students ability to make calculations in course outcomes are evaluated using 2 midterm and 1 final examination. Their ability to use the information and capture the concepts in applications are evaluated in 10 different laboratory that consist theoretical and computer based studies for which they have to prepare technical reports. Midterms consist 15% each, laboratory consists 20%, and final examination consists 50% of the final grade.
