A special note to those that are running MacOS:

  • Please use this link to download LabView. It should take about an hour. You should make an account.

  • The NI-ELVISmx and NI-DAQmx drivers that are required by the sub-VIs (available on the drive folder) are not available to MacOS users. In the case that you are using a Mac, you can still test the heating or cooling system before adding the sub-VIs to your project. The purpose of the provided sub-VIs is for the code to be able to interact with hardware (and hence the need of the drivers), but since you will not be using any hardware component for the lab, you can add these at the end to complete the lab procedure.

To those running Windows:

  • Download LabView here.

  • Please download these additional drivers as well: 

The lab quizzes will be emailed to you the day before the lab by 5 PM. The quizzes will be due before the lab session. If you have any questions about labview troubleshooting, you can get help from the open lab TAs tomorrow morning from 8 AM to 10 AM. We highly reccomend you attend.

=== Semester-Long Design Project ===

The early benchmark deadline is Thursday at the end of your lab period; benchmarking early does result in some extra credit for the course. The regular deadline will be the end of your Monday lab session (Modelshop Session 3). 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your recitation TA. They will be able to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.

Weekly Update [CORRECTION]

The lab 6 rewrite and the lecture form are due next Sunday (7/26) at 11:59 PM EDT.

The lab quizzes will be emailed to you the day before the lab by 5 PM. The quizzes will be due before the lab session.

=== Semester-Long Design Project ===

The early benchmark deadline is Monday at the end of your lab period; benchmarking early does result in some extra credit for the course. The regular deadline will be the end of your Thursday lab session (Modelshop Session 2). The DFR will be due with benchmark A (Thursday).

=== Extra Credit Lecture ===

There will be a special intensive workshop on writing lab reports by Professor Duncan Osborne.  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. To gain extra credit, you will need to fill out the associated form on the lecture tab of the website. If you fill out this form, you will be able to rewrite your first lab report for a better grade. The rewrite and the form submission are due at 11:59 on Wednesday night.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your recitation TA. They will be able to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.

Lecture 2 UPDATE

Hi All,

Due to the confusion with lecture 2, everyone will be receiving full credit for the lecture. The video for lecture 2 has been updated in the lecture attendence tab to watch, but you do not have to fill out the questions. Lectures 3 and 4 are on the website and are due at 5 PM on Friday.

Keep up the good work!

This week, you will need fusion for the labs. Please make sure that fusion works on your computer. If you have any questions about fusion troubleshooting, you can get help from the open lab TAs tomorrow morning.

Regarding Modelshop Session 1:

Your second lab session of the week will be your first modelshop session. This is in class time to start working on your semester long design project and to ask and troubleshoto with TAs. There is no quiz for this session, so you will only have one quiz this week!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your recitation TA. They will be able to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.

Stay safe!

Have a nice weekend.

Lab 1 Survey

Hello Everyone!

Please fill out this ANONYMOUS survey on lab 1. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and helpful on improving the EG 1003 lab experience, especially during remote times. The survey link is: http://bit.ly/eglab1summer.

Thank you for filling it out!

RAD idea deadline extension

The deadline to submit ideas for RAD is now July 10th at 11:59 PM.

Additional Resources

Hello Everyone!

With upcoming lab reports and SLDP projects, please note some resources available to you:

1.) Underneath the Open Lab Schedule tab on the EG website, we provide open lab times with accompanying Zoom links for additional TA support.

2.) The Writing Center at the Polytechnic Tutoring Center (PTC) is here to help with all your writing needs. Our Writing Consultants are available for individual, 45-minute appointments to assist you with brainstorming, drafting, and editing projects such as:
• EG lab reports
• Academic essays
• Cover letters and resumes
• Personal statements for scholarship, internship, and graduate school applications

As a student in EG 1003, you will be asked to write a series of lab reports. These lab reports are a key component of EG 1003, and their purpose is to inform the reader of your research results clearly, precisely, and concisely. Lab reports are organized in a very specific way that may be new to you, and while they can be initially tricky to figure out, the Writing Center is available to help you from start to finish.

Unlike a proofreading service, our Writing Consultants will work with you one-on-one, helping you to improve not only your grammar and spelling but also organization and clarity.
 
Appointments are available this summer Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:00am-4:00pm, with the last appointment at 3:00pm (EDT).  All appointments are up to 45 minutes in length and are conducted via Zoom.

Appointments can be made over the phone at 646-997-3425 email at polytechnictutoring@nyu.edu

We look forward to working with you!

John Paul Cleveland, Director
