Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

Final mark is the average of the exam, laboratories and auditorium classes.*

Mark from laboratories:
The average of all laboratory exercises (short tests and reports).

Mark from auditorium classes:

  • Class attendance is obligatory.
  • During the classes, a student will write short tests evaluated 0/1 point and will answer orally to the evaluation 0/0.5 point. The average of accumulated points obtained from short tests and answers will be the basis for the mark from auditorium classes:
    < 50% of possible points – 2.0
    50%-60% of possible points – 3.0
    61%-70% of possible points – 3.5
    71%-80% of possible points – 4.0
    81%-90% of possible points – 4.5
    91%-100% of possible points – 5.0
  • If a student fails auditorium classes (mark 2.0), they will have a possibility of a resit in the form of a resit test. In the resit test there will be 5 tasks evaluated as follows:
    0 point – if wrong or a major mistake;
    0.5 point – a minor error in calculations;
    1 point – task solved properly.
    The mark from the resit test will be assigned according to the following scale:
    < 50% of possible points – 2.0
    50%-60% of possible points – 3.0
    61%-70% of possible points – 3.5
    71%-80% of possible points – 4.0
    81%-90% of possible points – 4.5
    91%-100% of possible points – 5.0
Prerequisites and additional requirements:
  1. The following courses have to be passed with a positive mark: Mathematics, Mechanics 1.
  2. Students should have knowledge of vectors: forces, moments, system of forces reduction.
  3. Students should know how to calculate static reactions of statically determinate structures.
  4. Students should know basics of mathematical analysis: differentials, integrals.
