Literature consists of a reader and a number of selected scientific papers.
|Course form:||The course consists of two 2-hour lectures and a 2-hour workshop every week. The rest of the work is self study. Each student will select a method or technique described in a scientific paper for which a paper will be written. Main tasks will be literature review and description of methods using the meta-modeling technique of process-deliverable diagrams. The contents of this paper have to be presented in a knowledge clip and your paper will be peer reviewed.|
|Exam form:||The course is run as a project, where several deliverables have to be produced. The deliverable grade is a weighted average for the following assignments:
- the deliverable grade should be 5.0 or higher;
- the midterm exam grade should be 5.0 or higher;
