**Teaching methods**- The course consists of lectures and seminars.
**Assessment methods**- The course is completed by an exam. The total score consists of:

- the points gained in four written tests (80%)

- the points for active participation at instructions and homework - autocorrection exercise (20%)

Any copying, recording or taking out the tests, use of unauthorized devices and means of communication or other distortions of test objectivity will be considered a failure in the course and a gross violation of study regulations. Consequently, the teacher closes the test (credit) score in IS by grade "F" and Dean initiates disciplinary proceedings. **Language of instruction**- English
**Further Comments**- Study Materials

The course is taught annually.
