IMPORTANT LAB INFORMATION!!

This week is the Introduction to LabView & Digital Logic lab

You will NEED to have NI LabVIEW installed if you are taking the lab remotely.

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: 

If you have any questions regarding the installation of these softwares, please visit the open lab. Timings for the open lab are as follows:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 12 PM- 8:30PM

Wednesday: 2 PM - 8:30 PM

Writing Center Resource

Hello Everyone!

With upcoming lab reports and SLDP projects, the NYU Writing Center is here to help with all your writing needs. Schedule 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.

 

Appointments are available this Fall from Monday to Thursday, 7:00am-10:00pm (EDT), and Friday, 7:00am to 4:00pm (EDT). To make use of this amazing resource, please access the Writing Center Portal to make an appointment!

Welcome to EG1003 - Previous Communication

Hello all,

In case you missed our previous communication about the structure of the course for the Fall 2020 semester, below are the two emails sent out prior to start of classes:

Email 9/1/2020

I am reaching out to clarify and emphasize a few points from the email below and to ensure that everyone has received it. Please see the email below for additional details. 

Important Clarifications About First Weeks of Class

  • Tomorrow is the first day of class on Wednesday, September 2nd (lecture, lab, and recitation will be remote)

  • Thursday, September 3rd and Friday, September 4th classes will be cancelled for EG 1003

  • If you have any questions that do not get addressed tomorrow we will be holding a virtual Q&A session on Friday, September 4th at 12:00 pm (noon)

  • EG 1003 will meet remotely (including tomorrow) for lecture, lab, and recitation from Wednesday, September 2nd to Friday, September 11th

  • Lab and recitation will resume in-person after Friday, September 11th

  • Lecture will be remote all semester, and anyone can choose to take lab or recitation remotely (see details below for how)

  • If you have not done so please fill out this survey, you must attend class synchronously unless you have prior approval, Professor Li has reached out to those who have requested a time zone exception to attend asynchronously

  • The following week Wednesday, September 9th you will attend your Monday schedule of classes to account for the Labor Day holiday (see image below), so you will not attend any EG 1003 sections on September 9th

A Few Clarifications Regarding Software

  • This is a reminder that all of the Zoom links are available in NYU Classes. The Zoom recordings will also be available after the meeting video processes on NYU Classes (sometimes there is a delay). The lecture link and all Wednesday, Sept 2nd classes are accessible now. Any missing links for next week will be added soon. Please remember that there is no class for Sept 3rd or 4th. The lecture link was added this afternoon and is not specific to the Letter-Number section. It is just the EG 1003 lecture. There are separate links for the Letter-Number Lab and Recitation, for instance A1 Lab and A1 Recitation. You must make sure you access the correct lab and recitation one based on your enrollment. They are chronological so you might not see them until the day of the Zoom meeting, unless you go to the next pages. Below you can see what your NYU Classes - EG 1003 - Zoom page should look like. On the day of your class your links should be on the front page.

Email 8/25/2020

Dear EG 1003 Participant,

Welcome to EG 1003! The entire General Engineering Program, especially the 110 plus members – faculty, writing consultants, and undergraduate teaching assistants (TAs) – extend a warm welcome to your first semester at NYU Tandon. We write to assure you that your EG 1003 experience will be as much "like always" as possible as we respond to these COVID-19 circumstances that are "like never before". This information is subject to change and we request that you read all of these details thoroughly.

We recognize that EG 1003 students and teaching team members face many uncertainties about what the Fall semester is going to be. NYU and EG 1003 are dedicated to providing a safe and healthy environment for you to learn and collaborate on campus. This message is intended to describe what you should expect. Please be assured that while the lab is in-person, the recitation is in-person, and the lecture is online, you will have the opportunity to participate in every aspect of the course remotely. Every week, you will receive a weekly update with information about what to expect, what is due, and what you need for the course. 

Next week will be the first day of class on Wednesday, September 2nd. Lecture, labs, and recitations that meet normally on this day will meet remotely. Thursday, September 3rd and Friday, September 4th classes will be cancelled for EG 1003. If you have any questions (and we are sure you do) we will be holding a virtual Q&A session on Friday, September 4th at noon EDT to supplement the first lecture on Wednesday, September 2nd at 12:30 pm EDT. Both the first lecture which will introduce you to EG 1003 and the Friday Q&A will be recorded. The following week Wednesday, September 9th will be a Monday schedule to account for the Labor Day holiday. Tuesday, September 8th, Thursday September 10th, and Friday, September 11th will run their normal schedule, but with all REMOTE ONLY meetings. After this peculiar start to the semester the remaining weeks will return to the NORMAL MEETING PATTERN and IN-PERSON labs and recitations. 

In order to help us better prepare for this semester, please fill out this MANDATORY survey. Please submit your concerns in response to the final question of this survey and they will be addressed in the Friday, September 4th Q&A session if you cannot make it at noon.

If you are a remote student, you will join the Zoom call during your section’s scheduled Lab and Recitation times. Your Professor, Writing Consultants, and TAs will be available during the times listed on Albert. Lectures will be in a remote Zoom webinar format for all students. 

=== Lab ===

Lab sessions have mandatory attendance, whether this is remote or in person. All students may attend each lab in person; however, you will be provided and required to wear extra personal protective equipment (PPE), which includes a face shield and gloves in addition to a face mask that everyone must wear on campus. Labs are engaging, interactive design activities and experiments that introduce you to different fundamentals of engineering. If there is a time zone conflict, you will not be required to attend the regular lab session. Instead, you will be required to perform the lab exercises on your own time (we will be providing TA support, more info to follow).

Lab Quizzes: 24 hours before your lab meeting time, we will send you a link for a lab quiz. This quiz will be due at the start of your lab session. The quiz will cover the material from the lab you are completing that day so you are prepared to perform the procedure and the last week's lecture. There is no quiz for the first lab session.

=== Recitation ===

Recitation sessions have mandatory attendance, whether this is remote or in person. All students may attend each recitation in-person. In recitation you will be practicing your public speaking skills and presenting on your lab and project designs as a team. You must adhere to all physical distancing (see below) and cleaning protocols in accordance with NYU. If you are unable to attend in person, please call into your Zoom meeting during your scheduled class time through NYU Classes. If you cannot attend the recitation due to time zone conflicts, they will be recorded for you to watch at a later time and you will record your portion of the presentation beforehand. Your Recitation TA will download your presentations on the room computer and share their screen with the class. Since the Recitation TA will be controlling the slides, you will need to give them an audio cue to advance the slide. To maintain social distancing, presentations will be given from your assigned seat which will be maintained throughout the semester. You will be entering your seat assignment in NYU Classes in the first in-person meeting.

=== Lectures ===

Lectures will be held using a Zoom webinar found on NYU Classes during the time designated on Albert. Lectures will bring speakers from departments at Tandon and professionals from industry to talk about their areas of expertise. If you cannot attend the lecture due to time zone conflicts, they will be recorded for you to watch at a later time.

=== General Course Resources ===

  • NYU Classes (coming soon) will be used only for Zoom links and seat assignment

  • EG 1003 Lab Manual is the free textbook for this course. You are welcome to read ahead, but please note that some of the information is subject to change

  • EG 1003 Website is the portal for the gradebook and assignment submission. Your account will be set up in the first lab


Here are some answers to frequently asked questions: 

"Do I have to be on campus to take the EG 1003 course?"

No, there are alternatives if you are not on campus. However, no matter where you are, you will need sufficient computer or tablet technology, reliable high-speed internet connectivity, and video conferencing capabilities. For the EG 1003 labs there will be an online alternative available for any in-person lab activity. You will be engaging in real time with the course. So, even if you are remote you will have the experience of being in the recitation or the lab and working with other students. 

"Is special software required, and how can I access it?"

Students will need access to Duo Mobile; Zoom; Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, and Excel); Microsoft Project; Solidworks eDrawings; Autodesk Fusion 360; Autodesk Revit; Autodesk Tinkercad; Arduino IDE; Ultimaker Cura; Fritzing; and LabVIEW. Students can download the required software for free and install on their computer or access it remotely through the NYU Virtual Computing Lab or EG 1003 computers. The links below provide assistance for much of the needed software. On Thursday, September 3rd and Friday, September 4th we will hold office hour sessions to assist with software installation issues. If you are taking the course remotely you must install or have access to the software before your first lab meeting time. If your first lab will be Wednesday, September 2nd and you are having trouble installing Microsoft Office, Autodesk Fusion 360, or Ultimaker Cura please contact gecentral@eg.poly.edu.

Please visit the EG 1003 Lab Manual Software Requirements page. Some useful references are:

"Will I be able to use a Mac computer, or will a Windows machine be required?"

Yes, you will be able to use a Mac computer. In fact, about 20% of engineering students prefer to use Mac computers. However, some software used by EG 1003 does not have a Mac version available. Fortunately, students using Mac computers can access all necessary software through remote desktop software or they may consider using BootCamp to run Windows on their Mac for software that is only available on Windows.

"What happens if I become ill or need to care for an ill family member?"

We are all aware that the current conditions are not what any of us envisioned a year ago. In EG 1003, we have made it a priority for faculty, TAs, and students to treat each other with flexibility and compassion. If unexpected events impact your ability to participate in the course in any way, we ask that you contact your instructor as soon as possible. We will work with you to provide you with the best possible educational outcomes within the constraints of your situation.

The University requires students, faculty, and staff who are exposed to or have a confirmed case of COVID-19 to notify the NYU COVID-19 Prevention & Response Team immediately. Students are required to quarantine or isolate until cleared by the NYU COVID-19 Prevention & Response Team to be able to enter NYU buildings. Living spaces for isolation or quarantine are available for students residing in university housing who test positive for COVID-19 or are exposed to a positive case as an option if students elect not to or cannot return home to their permanent residence. Meals, medical attention, and support for facilitating academic accommodations will be provided. 

"Will I be required to participate in activities during the scheduled class time if I am remote?"

Yes, this is what is meant by the term synchronous online delivery. EG 1003 asks that all remote students be “present” (via Zoom) during their scheduled class time. This is best for your educational outcomes and for fostering connections with your fellow students and faculty. The experience will not typically be a simple Zoom call, but will involve collaborative activities and frequent interaction. This will also allow students to receive real-time help as they complete course assignments. We ask that, if possible, you keep your camera on for the best learning experience. If some constraint prevents you from participating in this way, we ask you to communicate with your instructor early in the semester in order to make necessary arrangements. Note that if an illness, an internet connectivity/technology issue, or excused absence such as a family emergency arises, there will be alternatives for catching up on the missed class time.

"Will I be able to get the full EG 1003 experience if I take the course remotely?"

Yes, although the class will be offered remotely, we have been working to create a new experience with new opportunities. We have emphasized the opportunity for virtual collaboration to maintain the in-person experience. You will still have faculty, writing consultants, and TAs who care about your well-being and growth throughout the semester. The TAs in particular recently went through EG 1003 and will be there to help you work through your first-year experience, both in and out of class. There will be activities that challenge you and support will be provided from the entire instructional team to help you succeed. You will also develop a network of outstanding peers that you see nearly every day to form lasting friendships. There will inevitably be challenges as we work through this hybrid Fall 2020. As we’re ironing out all the kinks, we ask for your patience and understanding. We’re doing everything we can to support you and maintain the fun aspects of this course. You can help us by asking questions, providing feedback, and maintaining open communication with your TAs and professors. We may not have all the answers right away, but we’ll strive to get you that answer.

We admit, the conditions of the Fall semester are not ideal. This course aims to introduce you to the exciting parts of engineering through teamwork, communication, and hands-on experience. While conducting this course in a hybrid mode is not how this experience was delivered in the past, neither were our counterparts’ experiences working in the industries of engineering, computer science, and technology. Just as real-world practicing professionals are transitioning to the new normal of hybrid Zoom and in-person experiences, we hope to develop your skills in this regard and make the transition as seamless as possible. NYU is doing everything first and foremost for your safety and the entire EG 1003 team feels that there is nothing more important than your health and safety.

For answers to other common questions, please refer to Tandon communications regarding COVID-19 and NYU Tandon Your Way or email us at gecentral@eg.poly.edu.

We plan to be in touch with you several more times before the start of the Fall semester. Please check your NYU email regularly. Stay healthy and be safe!

 

With kind regards,

Your EG 1003 Teaching Team
