Type of Assessment
During the course, some seminars will be done and students should attend them. At the exam, no question about seminars will be done, but the student presence will influence the final mark.
The goal of exam is verified the knowledge and competence using:
• Presentation of a short thesis (essay)
• oral exam
The short-thesis is about industry energy application. The essay will be done individually or in couple. 3 CFU each student is requested for short-thesis elaboration.
The ORAL EXAM consists in a technical conversation with the teacher (professor). Generally, two questions are done about the course program.
The final mark is mainly determined by oral exam, but it is influenced by short-thesis and seminar presence.
