Další požadavky na studenta

Full-time studies: Passing the written tests. Combined Studies: Solving two semestral programs: The first program is the 'Structure of atom, elementary particles, chemical bond in terms of quantum mechanics ", the second program is the field of" chemical-reaction kinetics, thermodynamics ". The programs will be checked by the teacher within 14 days of the submission and the results will be sent by email to students through the information system. Autumn credit test, written and oral examination. Results will be communicated immediately upon completion.
