Tietoa esitietovaatimuksista
The laboratory assignments are based on the contents of the courses BMT-57106 and BMT-57407 and the passing of these courses before this course is highly recommended. (It is possible to participate this course alongside BMT-57407 as they partly overlap in time.) The assignments include programming which means that the students should be able to program using a programming language such as Python, C++ or Java. Those students that have no programming skills should self-learn the skills before the course, for example, from the following materials:
