Examination modalities

The overall grade (100% of the possible total points, i.e. without the bonus points described below) is composed of 3 parts:

- 20% of the total points can be obtained from the written assignments of the exercise examples and submissions at the end of each lecture.

- 30% of the total points can be obtained from the written assignments of the homeworks (calculation examples, thematic summaries, preparation/presentation of brief presentations) Comprehensive analysis of a homework as a computational exercise (e.g. in form of source code development), which allows an extended answer of the question beyond the minimum (e.g. additional sensitivity analyses, ...), will be rewarded with additional bonus points.

- 50% of the total points can be obtained in the oral exam at the end of the semester. In the oral exam, which is conducted in several timeslots with a manageable number of students per timeslot, great emphasis is placed on the understanding of system interrelationships of the covered contents of this course. Thematically, in addition to the presented theoretical basics/fundamentals, all elaborated materials and discussions during the semester are relevant as a basis for the oral examination. Each student will receive 5 questions (each with a maximum of 10% points).

IMPORTANT:

HALF of the possible number of points must be obtained in EACH of the written assignments (exercise examples at the end of each lecture, homeworks) during the semester AND in the oral examination at the end of the semester in order to obtain a POSITIVE overall grade for this course. It is not sufficient to obtain more than 50% of the total possible points for this course, but fail to score at least half of the respective possible number of points in one of the three sub-areas.
