The list of exercises to be carried out during practical sessions will be provided by the teacher. Assessment of students will take class participation into account.
Lab work will be carried out during the Department"s normal working hours and will demonstrate the physical phenomena studied in the theory classes.
In addition, students will carry out either a bibliographic project or a simulation exercise. The work will be carried out at home, will be presented orally to the whole group, it is expected that students will spend approximately 15 hours on this activity. The algorithms needed will be analyzed in the classes covering problems.
A part exam will be held at the end of the fourth theme. Students passing the exam will gain an exemption in the final exam.
The final exam makes up 65% of the overall course grade or, where applicable, the average of the grades obtained in the two part exams. The remaining 35% will be based on practical work  comprising the bibliographic project or the simulation (15%); evaluation of lab practical sessions; and the solutions to problems (10%).
Knowledge of the basic principles of electromagnetism, and of differential and integral calculus. Basic knowledge of programming.
