Course assessment usually comprises of a comprehensive final exam and continuous assessment. Continuous assessment can include amongst others, midterms, projects, and class participation. Letter grades are calculated based on the weight of the final exam and the continuous assessment and the actual numerical marks obtained in these two assessment components. Based on the course grades the student’s semester grade point average (G.P.A.) and cumulative point average (C.P.A.).
The student must complete 240 ECTS and all programme requirements. A minimum cumulative grade point average (C.P.A.) of 2.0 is required. Thus, although a ‘D-‘ is a PASS grade, in order to achieve a C.P.A. of 2.0 an average grade of ‘C’ is required.
On completion of the programme the student will be able to:
- Design and develop complex multimedia artefacts taking into consideration the theoretical and scientific background of all components supporting the subject of multimedia.
- Create multimedia user interfaces and devise schemes for optimising them, taking into consideration all the aesthetic and ergonomic issues involved.
