Lectures and discussions, individual and group work for each module in the reading list, accompanying tutorial.

Leistung(en) für eine Beurteilung

The assessment is based on multiple parts. Each of these must be completed to achieve a positive final grade. The E&I Welcome Kick-Off counts as the first part of the Core Lecture and must be completed with a positive grade. The points earned at the Kick-Off are counted as “module check points” for the first regular class.

At the beginning of each class, students will be asked to provide a written answer to a knowledge transfer question pertaining to that session. These questions will require independent preparation for each module, based on the slides and the reading list. It will be decided by chance whether this “module check” will have to be done individually or in teams of 3-6 students.

Students also have to pass the final exam (min. 37.5 points) as well as obtain a total of at least 50 points (of a possible 130). In principle, attendance is not mandatory; however, the points for each module can only be obtained when present in class. A special format is available for working students, more details will be provided in the first Core Lecture class.

The final exam is based on the contents of the slides, the reading list, and class discussions held during the semester. The written exam is always held at the end of the semester. Students may repeat the exam at the beginning of the following term. Students can repeat the course to try for a better grade; the second grade will be final.
