Welcome to General Engineering 1003
Happy Benchmark A week!
As the benchmarks roll around, we just wanted to remind you that as a requirement for Benchmarking, all non-RAD groups must submit an initial 3D print design on the website. This can be for your logo, course modification, or robot part.
This must be submitted and will be checked when you attempt Benchmark A.
For Benchmark B, you must get your design approved in the protolab, and by commissioning you must have your 3D printed design.
The presentation slides and the video recording for the Writing Workshop that took place on 09/24 are now available.
The slides can be found on the "Lecture" tab while the video is available here.
The final decisions for your approved RAD projects are linked here. Please note that some projects have additional comments about them.
Also if you are a RAD or BMD group you MUST schedule a weekly meeting through this calendar if you haven't already. All group members must be present, this meeting will determine important aspects of your project such as benchmarking.
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.
RAD Applications are due on Sunday, 9/22. Click here to access the application. Potential topics and ideas can be found here. Additionally, you will need to sign up for weekly meeting slots during open lab for the week of 9/22. All groups members must be able to attend the meetings every week. You must sign up for a meeting by 9/22. The sign-up link can be found here.
Also, EG 1003 will be hosting an extra credit workshop during Exam Hour on Tuesday, 9/24. You will receive extra credit for attending this workshop.
Do not hesitate to reach out to your recitation TA with any questions or concerns.
Since a lot of students have expressed a need for greater assistance with Lab 1C - Introduction to 3D Printing (making the keychain in Fusion 360), the deadline for the task is postponed. The file will now be due for submission on the website the night before your Lab 4. The keychain will be considered part of the Prelab component for Lab 4.
Starting next week (September 16 onwards), you can go into the Open Lab to get assistance from a TA if you are experiencing issues with the CAD software. More information on Open Lab will be provided in Recitation this week.
For lab 4 this semester there is a pre-lab component. This lab's pre-lab is to visit the Makerspace and complete the Safety Orientation. IMPORTANT! You cannot attend regular Makerspace Safety Orientations, EG 1003 has organized special training for our students. Follow this link: https://orgsync.com/163395/events/2766542/occurrences/6662459 to sign up EG 1003 Makerspace Tours (make sure you are signed in to your NYU account).
ONLY SIGN UP FOR ONE TIME SLOT, DO NOT GO TO A REGULAR SAFETY ORIENTATION (YOU WILL NOT GET CREDIT IF YOU DO SO).
If you have already attended a Safety Orientation please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/ZagRSWf5qJsrJnAC9 and we will check it against the Makerspace Database. Fill out this form by 9/11 if you have completed a Saftey Training. If none of these times work for you please let your recitation TA know. MAKE SURE YOU SIGN UP SOON AS SPACE IS LIMITED!
If you have any questions please reach out to your Recitation TA for assistance.
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
- Introduction to Arduino
- Introduction to Raspberry Pi
- Advanced Arduino
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 September 10. Please sign up here if you are interested in attending.
Enjoy the semester!
For staffing information for the course you may click on "Sections" found on the left menu portion of this webpage under "Course Information" heading. Room numbers for recitations and labs can also be found on the same page. Lectures will take place at the Dibner building, in the Pfizer Auditorium. Recitations and Labs are mainly run by TAs. You may familiarize yourselves with all of the EG TAs by clicking on "Teaching Assistants" and looking up your TAs by their names.
If you have any further questions regarding the course, assignments, staffing, or anything else you may direct them to email@example.com. Have a successful semester!
