The teaching is delivered through face-to-face lectures that are carried out with the aid of audiovisual means (PowerPoint presentations) and practical exercises.
Face-to-face attendance to the lessons is not compulsory but highly recommended.
Assessment methods and criteria
written test and optional oral test reserved for students who have achieved a score of not less than 26/30 in the written test. The written test consists of exercises and theory questions and allows the student to achieve the maximum score (30L / 30)
Examples of exams are made available by the end of the course. The exercises and theory questions have an indicative weight of 2/3 and 1/3 in determining the final score.
The oral exam (optional) allows increasing the score obtained with the written exam by a maximum of 2 points.
Timing: at the end of the course (there are NO intermediate tests)
Duration of the written test: about 80 minutes
How to return the test results: the results are published on esse3 generally within 7 days from the date of the exam
Materials allowed during the exam tests: pocket calculator
