Space Missions and Systems: For students who successfully passed the home tests, the examination consists in a standard Q&A interview of approximately 30 min. Students who did not pass the home tests will take a quick multiple choice test prior to the oral exam. Typical duration is 15 minutes, for 15 questions. On the basis of the outcome, students will be notified the maximum score attainable in the oral exam. They will then decide whether or not to take the oral exam. The examination is a thorough oral test (approximately two hours) on all topics addressed in the course.
