Laboratories (BA3114)




You will perform four labs in this course. The first lab familiarizes you with the equipment the software platform.
Labs are performed in groups of two or three students. You'll form lab groups at the first lab session.
You can download the lab files at the Course Information link on Blackboard
All labs except the first one, require a preparation and a report. Each lab group submits a preparation at the beginning of the lab. One week after the lab, the lab group submits a lab report.
There are no makeup labs. The TA will mark down the attendance.
