Labs

This course involves the completion of both labs (in pairs) and assignments (individually). Your lab work will be evaluated based on the submission of a log book. The expectations for your log book are described in the Log Book Expectations and Grading Criteria document and in a summary table.

Properly-prepared lab groups should be able to complete their labs by the end of the lab session, but you may need a little extra time. If so, you can turn in your lab book in another section's lab or at the Engineering One Help Centre. The deadline for lab reports is:
