COADSYS page for ME492 is now open for student registration (no key is required).

A general measurement for grading of ME492 Course:

After the presentation, total score is determined by average score from the jury, Consultor’s score, and the score from ME492 General Evaluation Exam. The final grading will be determined by the department committee, gathering after the presentations, in regard to aligning all scores and defining the grading limits. The exceptions will be like below.

If the students are not able to complete their theses in time and demand “incomplete”(I), after the presentation and determination of the total score, they will receive a half grade below from the grade deserved regarding the grade limits determined before. In order to change (I) grade to another grade, they have to present their projects and hand out their reports before the adddrop week ends.
