Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Not applicable.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Standard students in Czech Programme:
1) Mid-term exam: 25 points.
2) Homework and its evaluation in PC laboratory: 20 points.
3) Final exam: 55 points.
The passing boundary for ECTS assessment: 50 points.

International students:
1) Test: 20 points.
2) Mid-term exam: 20 points.
3) Final exam: 60 points.
The passing boundary for ECTS assessment: 50 points.
Exam prerequisites:
For receiving the credit and thus for entering the exam, students have to obtain at least five points from the project. Plagiarism and not allowed cooperation will cause that involved students are not classified and disciplinary action may be initiated.

Language of instruction

Czech, English

Work placements

Not applicable.

Aims

The goal is to obtain fundamental knowledge of methods for description, analysis, and design of combinatorial and sequential logic networks in digital systems.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

The knowledge of students is examined by the mid-exam (25 points), the project (20 points) and by the final exam. The minimal number of points, which can be obtained from the final exam, is 25 (of 55 points). Otherwise, no points will be assigned to a student. Plagiarism and not allowed cooperation will cause that involved students are not classified and disciplinary action can be initiated.
