Student work is evaluated according to University rules (see the rules for evaluating coursework and exams) namely written and oral exams, laboratory exams, individual or group work, public presentations of projects and theses defences. For classes taught in English, questions are in English. Students may respond in French. For classes taught in French, questions are in French. Students may ask for help translating the questions into English and respond to them in English.
Certain activities completed during the semester and supervised by a teaching team in collaboration with students do not take place outside of the class session. Thus they are not re-evaluated in a future course session.
At the beginning of the semester, professors will explain their marking scheme, which is based on the learning outcomes of the course (that it frequently shares with those of the Master’s degree programme).
For more information on evaluation methods, students may consult the relevant evaluation descriptions.
To obtain a passing grade, the marks received for the teaching units are offset by their respective credits.
