Assessment 
Knowledge evaluation will take into account both the theoretical and the practical knowledge, and also, of the abilities to use the computer for solving concrete problems. In this direction, the laboratory activity during the semester will also be considered (marked by L). Also a written examination will bring a mark E. The final mark is F=(L+E)/2.
