EE 231 Labs

Schedule for Fall 2006

Click here to see an overview of the lab, including the lab grading policy.

You are responsible for preparing for and completing the labs, including material which may not have been covered in class. This is a university environment, and you are expected to have the maturity to research and read all material you will need. If you don't understand something, ask for help. There are numerous resources available to you -- faculty, TA's, lab manager, etc. -- and we are all eager to help you succeed. However, you must take in initiative to seek help when you need it.

Note: The lab handouts are in Adobe Acrobat format. You need to open them using a PDF reader program. A free program is available from Adobe:
