Additional information for the exercises

The lectures of Engineering Informatics I and II will be accompanied by two assignments. 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 3-4 students.

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 INF I and II ), are given a bonus of 0,3 on their grades.
