Course PM

This page contains the program of the course: lectures and computer labs. Other information, such as learning outcomes, teachers, literature and examination, are in a separate course PM.

The schedule of the course is in TimeEdit.

Minutes of the mid-course meeting held on 24 September 2019.


None of the lectures or computer lab sessions are mandatory to attend. However you are strongly encouraged to attend as we have limited resources to provide help outside teaching hours.
