Our assessment methodology focuses on what student can do rather than what they can write during examinations. Students cannot pass a course only by Examination.

Assessment typically includes a combination of coursework (presentations, assignments, essay report writing, in-class tests, research and project work) and/or examinations.

Individual and group projects are assessed through a written report, practical demonstration and oral examination.
