If you are advised by Prof Banning please note the following:

Appointment Plus is no longer working and the new system is not on-line.

To that end, I am starting the old-school paper signup process for registration for Spring 2018. Early registration starts November 8.

The sheets will be on my door starting tomorrow showing 30-minute time slots. There are 3o-minute slots for early night time students scheduled also.

The date range for signups will be September 18 - October 27 and Early Registration starts November 8.

There are approximately 155 slots for that date range which should be adequate for those students that can remember to sign up.

Senior Project Equipment

09-10-2008 @ 5:15pm,

Do you know what you want to do for senior projects but don't have the equipment or money to buy it? I have acquired many items over the years that can be used for EETH and CETH senior projects (see link below).

I also have a number of computers that can be used by students for senior projects in ET227a for your use in case you need software not installed on the image in the computer labs, or you need Linux or another OS.
