Hey all,

The Open Lab (JABS 573) will be open for kit returns from  4/22 -5/3. Failure to return your kit will result in a grade of I (Incomplete) in EG-UY 1004: Introduction to Engineering and Design. If the I (Incomplete) is not resolved in a timely manner, the grade will convert to an F (Fail). If you have returned your kit, please disregard this message. Also as a reminder: If any RAD groups would like to continue their projects past this semester and keep any materials, you will have to submit this form.

Hope everyone had a great semester with the EG1004 team and good luck with finals!

DEADLINE EXTENDED Keep Working On Your RAD Project

To All RAD groups,

In light of the semester coming to a close, we wanted to encourage students to carry on their projects even after they have completed EG 1004. If a group wants to continue their project after the end of the semester and retain ownership of their prototype, they can fill out this form. Completion of this form doesn't guarantee that the group will get to keep the project. The final decision is made by EG 1004 administration. The deadline for completion is this Saturday 4/27.

Good luck to everyone this submission week!
