Lab times

All labs will be in Cotton 249 on Mondays 9:00-12:00. They will start on the 6th of July.


(announcements will appear here)

Test 2 will be held on the 18th of October at 2:30pm in HULT220.


Labs will restart on Monday 13th September.

Face to face lectures will also resume and will continue to be recorded.

With regard to the labs we ask that you try and use a mask and to keep 1m distancing.

Masks and wipes will be provided.

Please remember to scan in while you enter the room.

The 4 remaining labs will be shorter "interactive tutorials" and should easily be completed during the lab time. This is to avoid having multiple class groups in the lab trying to complete work. I will only require one single report for the 4 labs. More details to follow.

Please email me if you are unable to attend the labs as we may be able to send you a set of equipment so you can do them from home. You will need a Windows PC to run the compiler software.
