More information about the final projects will be uploaded later.

Oral Exams

This year we will be holding online oral exams at the end of January (see dates above). Please register using TUWEL. The exam will take 15 minutes and makes up 35% of your final grade. As with all other sub-parts of this course, you need at least 50% on the exam to pass the course. Each student will have to answer two questions, based on lectures 1-8 (including the invited talks).
