Additional Material
The course is consist of lecture and class discussion. Class sessions will be mainly used for discussions to clarify concepts, ideas elaborated in the fundamental text books. Students therefore should read the assigned chapters and prepared for class participation at each session. Case studies, simulations and presentations will also be used to accomplish this course.
Planned Learning Activities and Teaching Methods
Lectures, Practical Courses, Presentation, Seminar, Project, Laboratory Applications (if necessary)
Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
