Teaching Methods and Techniques  In the first three weeks of the course, a conceptual framework will be developed with theoretical lectures, reading and discussion methods.. In the rest of the process, laboratory work will be carried out simultaneously with the reading and discussion process. Students, will enhance their knowledge and siklls with an "augmented reality"  exhibition by the end of the year.
