Teaching schedule

The course consists of a preliminary assignment, five lecture days in April and May, three group assignments (one of which is a case study project) and two individual assignments. Attending all the lecture days (for the whole time!) is mandatory; one absence is permitted if the reason is very good. All assignments are mandatory as well, and deadlines must be met! Group members will also grade each other, and this may have an effect on the overall grading as well.

The course will be arranged virtually (virtual lectures and meetings). Lectures on Tuesdays at 14–18.

Completion methods

Attending the lectures and completing the assignments. Please note the mandatory preliminary assignment with a deadline before the first lecture.
