Additional information for the exercises

The lectures of Informatics in Civil Engineering will be accompanied by two exercise assignments each. Purpose of these assignments is to implement the knowledge and experience gained during the lecture at an example of civil engineering.

The assignments can be completed in groups of two students. The assignments have to be completed after about two weeks. During the processing time tutorials will be offered.

Each assignment will be completed by a colloquium. At these colloquiums the students present their results and programming and will be interrogated about their approach.

In this colloquium the originally assigned version will be regarded only. Every attempt to use an updated version will be treated as cheating and results in failing. Insufficient assignments will need further amendments to pass. In that case the assignment will be marked with 1 out of 10 points.

Students, which achieved more than 70 % of the maximal points (14 points for IIB 1 and 2), are given a bonus of 0,3 on their grades.

Students can use the computer lab to work on their assignments. However, they do need a personal Login. It is recommended to request the Login at an early stage rather than short term.
