  • Complete project will be assigned for students in each session, (aside from the class-shared projects) to work on at home, and is required to submit it at the beginning of every session starting from the 2nd session. The submitted assignments will be discussed in the next session with each student individually.
  • Questions and discussions are highly encouraged during class.  


  • Each student MUST bring in a laptop with Windows OS installed on to every class session.
