Assesment and completion:

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is graded as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10). 


Students may progress from the first year to the second year if they have completed course units in the following subjects: Mathematics for Engineering, Physics for Engineering, General Chemistry, Computer Integrations I and Planning Technologies and Tools.
Students may progress from the second year to the third year if they have completed all first-year course units, accumulated at least 45 second-year credits and completed course units in the following subjects: Chemistry of Polymers, Polymer Composites, Materials Science and Computer Integration II
