Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

Class Rate (CR) is the sum of ratings of Auditorium classes with weight 0.6 and the average rating of the tests and activities during the Lectures with a weight of 0.4. Final assessment (F) is the average of the grades for a class (CR) and Exam rate (E).

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Knowledge of English on communicative level. Basic knowledge in the field of engineering.
