### Teaching methods and study activities

### Resources

Matlab

### Evaluation

Grading will be done according to the 7-scale, using an internal examiner.

In order to qualify for the exam, the students must have the compulsory activity approved.

### Examination

The final exam is a 3 hour written exam and takes place at Campus Horsens. All supplementary materials and aids are allowed, e.g. using a computer as a reference work. Communication of any sort is not allowed during the exam and will lead to expulsion of all involved parties from the exam. Internet access is not allowed.

The re-exam may be held as an oral examination.

### Grading criteria

Grading is according to the 7-point grading scale.

Mark 12:
