Course Policy General


Students should be familiar with the University's policies regarding the grading system, withdrawals, exemptions, class assignments,
missed tests and exams, attending classes, supplemental privileges, and academic dishonesty. Minimum 80% attendance during lecture
hours, 100% attendance during practical work sessions, except for some unprecedented mishaps, and presence during industrial visit/visits.
Testing policy
In the event that a student is absent on the day of a test, it is the students responsibility to contact the instructor prior to the missed test to
be eligible for a make-up test. The opportunity to write missed tests will be granted at the facultys discretion and only under exceptional
circumstances. Students may be asked to document illness with a medical note.
Assessment/Evaluation
Continues assessment on the assignments and quizzes and Lab report done by students will account for 35% of the total mark. This course
need two test that is test one 20% and Lab Exam 15% based on the program. In general the two test have 35% from total mark. The final
examination will account for the rest 35%.
