Teaching method and examination

Teaching: The minor offers a set of theoretical and project based courses that allow the students to learn from the scratch, exercise, and apply the acquired knowledge in near-real-world problems, as well as to develop practical skills in a multidisciplinary context.

Examination: (written, digital, oral, regular quizzes, projects). All courses and projects of the minor are assessed separately, and the minimum passing grade for each one is 6. The minor is successfully done if all passed courses jointly yield 30 ECTs.
