The completed practical projects will be presented on a single project day, which will take place at the end of the lecture period. The oral exam takes place within the last two weeks of the lecture period. If necessary, re-examinations will take place at the end of the term. Details on the schedule can be found on the websites of the department and in Stud.IP.
