To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
The understanding and knowledge on accelerator and fusion reactor technologies are evaluated through a small quiz or assignments of each lecture.
