Unit Web Page
Unit lecture notes, resources, assignments and other information about the unit can be accessed through iLearn.
Library and internet search engines, word processing software. The primary software tool used in practicals is Matlab.
Attendance at laboratory sessions is compulsory. Any student who is absent from more than two sessions may not be permitted to sit the examinations.
Experimental work and reports are to be written during the laboratory sessions with reports to be viewed by the tutors. Test questions must be undertaken during the practical sessions and marked by the tutors during those sessions. It is prohibited to use the computers in the laboratory for any purpose other than as directed.
Practical Session Safety
No student will be permitted to enter the laboratory without proper footwear. THONGS OR SANDALS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE. NO FOOD OR DRINK may be taken into the laboratory.
