Mode of Delivery Face-to-Face
Planned Learning Activities & Teaching Methods Courses are theoretically. Application is made in the last hour of each course, and again for subjects to be discussed are given homework on the subject committed.
Assessment Methods Two midterms and a final examination is done. Also at the end of each application hours, is gathered homework that given to students in a previous lesson for contribute to evaluation.
