Type of evaluation

To pass the exam it is required 1. To develop individually the weekly exercises and bring them to the oral examination 2. To pass the written examination related to the design of steel and r.c. structural members 3. To pass the oral examination, dealing with the weekly exercises, the discussion of the written examination and the theoretical topics included in the programme of the course Note: - The written and the oral examinations are to be passed within the same session. - The written examinaion of the first session (June) is passed also if both the two intermediate written examinations (dealing with steel structures and with r.c. structures) are passed.
