Welcome to General Engineering 1003
As the end of the semester wraps up it is time to complete kit returns. This must be done only after your final presentation! You must return your kit to Open Lab by next Wednesday, December 15th. Open Lab will be running at its usual times until next Wednesday. Please follow the kit return process below:
- Disassemble your prototype and place everything inside the kit box. All materials, including the prototype, must be returned at the same time.
- Return your kit to an Open Lab TA.
- The TA will verify that everything put on the contract is being returned in the kit box. If you are missing major pieces (Arduinos, LCD displays, Rasberry Pis), you are responsible for purchasing a replacement part. We will only accept a physical replacement.
With final presentations coming up, this is a friendly reminder to please dress in business formal attire when presenting your final presentations! The following link breaks down what business formal attire is if you have any confusions: https://www.glassdoor.com/blog/guide/business-formal/.
Good luck on your projects and we look forward to hearing your presentation!
Open Lab will be closed from Thursday, 11/25 to Friday, 11/26 for Thanksgiving Break. Open Lab will run as usual from 9 AM-3:30 PM on Saturday and Sunday.

The RAD Showcase gives RAD groups the opportunity to present their projects to the EG teaching staff and members of the Tandon community. 7 RAD groups will be selected to present their final presentations in Pfizer Auditorium on Monday, December 13th during lecture time. In order to be selected, your group must also be available for practice presentations in the Pfizer Auditorium on Monday, December 6th at 12:30-1:50pm. During the practice presentation, 10 groups will present, and the top 7 will advance to present the following Monday for the Nick Russo Award.
First place Nick Russo Award winners will be presented at Tandon Convocation and will be awarded $200 each with second place winners being awarded $100 each. Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
This is your reminder to apply for the RAD Innovation Grant! The Innovation Grant is open to any RAD group needing additional funding to complete their project, or want to improve their prototype beyond the original budget. The deadline to apply for this grant has been extended to this Sunday, 11/07/21 at 11:59pm EDT.
If you previously attempted to fill out this form and were unable to, please use the link below and apply again!
Due to Modelshop this week, open lab will be closed during all EG1003 lab times. This means that on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 2-5pm open lab will not be accessible to you unless you have lab during that time.
Feel free to message your lab TAs with any questions or concerns.
Have a good start to the week!
I hope you're having a nice weekend and a spooky Halloween.
We wanted to inform you all that there was an issue with the % Voltage Change for lab 8 so all the competition scores had to be updated. Please see lab documents for the revised scores.
Don't hesitate to reach out to your lab TAs for any further questions or concerns.
Happy Halloween :)

Dear EG 1003 Students,
Thank you for understanding the late notice. This week's guest speakers are Jospeh Chow, Andrea Silverman, and Chen Feng, from the Civil and Urban Engineering Department. Unfortunately, they will need to be remote for this lecture at 12:45 pm on Monday, October 18th. So, rather than meeting in Pfizer Auditorium we will be holding tomorrow's lecture remotely on Zoom like we did last week. Here is the link you need to attend: https://nyu.zoom.us/j/95499034572. Attendance will be recorded using the participant data provided by Zoom. In order to receive credit, you must be signed into your NYU Zoom account through nyu.zoom.us. We'll see you virtually tomorrow! We do expect that the following week lectures will resume in person. If you would like to sit in Pfizer Auditorium to remotely log into Zoom, you are welcome to do so, but please rememeber to bring headphones.
The combinational logic circuit diagram required for the Lab 5: Introduction to Digital Logic report can be created using any software that enables you to make circuit diagrams. One such free-to-use online resource is CircuitLab. Make sure to include a picture of your completed circuit in your lab report and presentation.
Dear EG 1003 Students,
This is a reminder that next Tuesday, October 12th, is a special day in the NYU Academic Calendar and you will attend your Monday class schedule.
