**General competence (GC):**

After completing the linear algebra course the candidate:

- Can analyse relevant linear problems.
- Can apply the knowledge and skills within linear algebra to carry out assignments.
- Can communicate about different aspects in linear algebra, particularly explaining in mathematical terms how to deal with mathematical tasks.
- Can use the knowledge for concepts, theories and methods in linear algebra in other engineering areas.

## Teaching methods

The course is taught intensively during two non-consecutive weeks, in which a combination of lectures followed by task solving sessions and flipped classroom arrangements are used.

All lectures are streamed and recorded. Videos provided in flipped classroom arrangements are made available to all students attending the course.
