The oral exam is always conducted by two teachers of the School and has a duration of about 1 hour.
The depth and coherence of the knowledge of the most important concepts and equations will be evaluated.
Moreover the ability to apply them to simple specific cases will be assessed.
In case of emergency and only according to specific indications by the University of Genoa, the assessment method for the exam might be changed, including the possibility of an online procedure.
