Instruction
The educational methodology conforms to the higher education system in Hungary. The familiarization with the subject material takes place on the lectures, where there is no active participation of the students. The acquired knowledge can be applied at the practical subjects, in small study groups of 10-20 students, where there is possibility for individual consultation, discussion of the material and solving of exercises.>

Examinations
During the lecture period, the acquisition of the material of the lectures is attested by the successful completion of tests, which is the precondition of the signature at the end of the semester. At the end of the semester the students have to pass written examinations, and this is the time when students receive the practice marks as well. If a main subject is taught throughout more than one semester, a final examination has to be passed at the end, which generally consists of a written and an oral part. In the framework of the planning subjects, students have to solve planning projects.

The marking system is the following:
  • 5 – very good
  • 4 – good
  • 3 – fair
  • 2 – satisfactory
  • 1 – failed
