UE 4EUS3ELP Power Electronics


Session normale / First session
ER = évaluation rattrapable / ER assessment : un examen de TP / one practical exam + un examen écrit en séance / supervised written exam during the course
EN = évaluation non rattrapable / EN assessment : 1 compte rendu de BE / 1 Lab report

Session de rattrapage / Second session
ER : la note obtenue en session 2 remplace la note ER session normale / new examination to replace ER assessment
EN : évaluation non rattrapable / retaking EN assessment is not possible

Moyenne de l’UE / Course Unit assessment = EN 50% + ER 50%


The course exists in the following branches:
