200 Level Project Descriptions

Fall 2023

Collected here are the links to the assigned laboratory projects for the current semester. To find your projects, first locate the table for your course.

To print your own copies of the project descriptions, simply click on the desired project and print it from your browser. No project description is more that 10 pages long.

The projects and/or the descriptions may change during the course of the semester. To avoid unnecessary printing and ensure that you have the correct, up-to-date version of the project description, don't print them all at the beginning of the semester. Print them as you need them, a few days before the beginning of each cycle.

If you have any questions about your projects, contact your laboratory instructor. For more information about the course, see the Syllabus.
