Learning assessment

The final examination consists of an oral interview with the aim of assessing the knowledge acquired, the ability of understanding and the oral presentation. At the oral interview it is necessary to present a short written report on the exercises carried out in Matlab in the laboratory during the course. The interview will cover all the topics treated in the course and the discussion of the exercises.
