 Syllabus of tutorials:

The topics of the seminaries follow the topics of lectures.
Conditions for the assessment:
Credit Conditions:
 Active Participation: Attend at least 70% of the labs.
 Submission of Assignments: Submit 3 out of 5 assigned individual until the deadline 14 days from the beginning of the examination period.
 During the semester, a total of 5 individual tasks from various topics covered in the curriculum will be assigned during the labs.
 Students have 14 days to submit each task. If an assignment is submitted on time, the student can earn the maximum number of points for that task.
 The maximum points decrease by 1 point per day of delay beyond the submission deadline, until it reaches 0 points.
 These earned points contribute to the overall evaluation for the final exam.
