The lectures are held on Tuesdyas starting at 12:45 in T2:A4-203b.
Laboratory exercises are obligatory for attendance. Their time and terms does not correspond to a planned schedule
and will always be agreed in lectures before it takes place.
There will be only one term. The exam will consist of written and oral part. Both parts will cover all topics from lectures and lab exercises.
