Mode of Delivery and Assessments
The method of teaching follows the standard classroom model in which the primary mode of instruction is lectures, laboratory experiments, and engagement with students through discussion.
Engineering disciplines require strong mathematics skills. Assessments (in-class examinations, homework and individual and team projects) will focus on those skills. In general, grades will be assigned based on performance on those assessments.
