These include tests, dissertations, practical projects, and other ways of monitoring students’ performance. Each semester, students are assessed through three partial grades, culminating in a final average grade. Minimum attendance of classes is also a requirement for completing a discipline. Classes are both practical and theoretical, aiming to provide students with a well-balanced training that will give them the skills needed for the global market.
