Literature and preparations
Elementary physics and mathematical statistics, basic course or equivalent. Basic control course, EL1000 or equivalent.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- LAB2 - Lab 2, 0.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- LAB3 - Lab 3, 2.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- LABA - Lab 1, 2.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TENA - Written exam, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
