Welcome to General Engineering 1003

Arduino Workshop

Hello all,

Hope you have all had a wonderful week. The Arduino workshop that was originally scheduled on Tuesday is rescheduled to tomorrow, Friday February 20th from 12-1:30 PM. Arduino is one of the microcontrollers available for use in the RAD challenge, and is also an excellent microcontroller for personal projects as well. If you are interested in learning how to use it, please sign up with the link below.

Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Microsoft Project Download

With milestone presentations quickly approaching, Microsoft Project can be installed (Windows only) at the Tandon Laptop Help Desk is located in Rogers Hall, Room 337, Monday-Friday from 9:00 am - 4:45 pm. MS Project is available for Windows and Macs through the NYU Virtual Computer Lab, though we highly recommend utilizing the Tandon Help Desk as a local installation of MS Project will better support your assignments.

MakerSpace Orientation

If you scheduled a MakerSpace orientation for yesterday, 2/17, please try to attend another orientation this week before lab. If you cannot make any other times this week, you will not be penalized, but you still must complete the orientation ASAP. I will see you all next week for Milestone 1 presentations. Here are the following groups and their projects. If you see an inconsistency, please e-mail me:

HIR: Nidhi, Austin, Dylan

HIR: Luke, Ellawyn, Kavitha

HIR: Cristina, Caitlin, Alexander

RDS: Sundeep, Richard, Talal

BDR: William, Jack, Matthew

[IMPORTANT] Extra Credit Lecture

On Tuesday, February 18th, from 12:30pm to 2:00pm, there will be a special intensive workshop on writing lab reports by Professor Duncan Osborne in Pfizer Auditorium.  As the semester continues the grading of lab reports will grow tougher, so learning the correct way to write these reports is vital for both this class and the rest of your engineering career.  We encourage all students to attend as there will be no Open Lab during this time and those who do attend may receive extra credit on their Lab Reports.

Upcoming EG Workshops

Hello all,

Hope you had a good first week of classes! EG1003 will be running a set of workshops in the MakerSpace over the course of the semester. These workshops are designed to provide students with the opportunity to learn technical skills that they may need in future courses or careers.

The workshops being run (during Exam Hour on Tuesday) this semester are:

Intoduction to Circuitry (2/11)
Introduction to Arduino (2/18)
Introduction to Raspberry Pi (3/3)
Advanced Arduino (4/7)
Soldering (4/14)

While attending workshops does not affect your grade in the course, we highly encourage you to attend them as they are proven to be extremely beneficial! (especially for students working on Rapid Assembly and Design Challenge)The first workshop (Intro to Circuitry) will be held on Tuesday February 11th from 12/30 to 2:00.

Please sign up with the link below if you are interested in attending.

Enjoy the semester!
