LaTeX Learning Workshop

The UofM Student Chapter of IEEE will be holding a LaTeX Learning Workshop will be held on Wednesday, October 25th at 4:30pm in ES 218. LaTeX is a typesetting system which can be used to easily create professional-looking documents, and is especially good for making lab reports and resumes. The workshop will run for roughly an hour and a half, with a break in the middle for some free pizza and ample time to answer specific questions.

If you plan on attending this workshop, please sign up using this form. To get the most out of this event, we recommend installing two programs used to work with LaTeX before the event. Instructions for doing so are provided in the signup form.

Teardown Day

Teardown Day has been moved to November 1st at 4:30pm. Teardown Day is a chance to come into an electronics lab, rummage through boxes of old electronics, and try to salvage cool-looking parts to take home with you. It's a great chance to get experience with using soldering irons. We are still working on the details of the event, so stay tuned for things like a room number in the near future.

Peer Tutoring

08-26-2016 @ 8:15pm,

Once again Herff College is offering peer tutoring for our undergraduate students.

Attached is the Fall Tutoring schedule for you (click button below). We have a couple of new things this year.

1) Every student will need to swipe their university ID for check-in and check-out at tutoring. Tutoring is still FREE, but this will allow us to see how many students are using the free tutoring and make sure we are providing the best service possible.

2) Tutoring now has a new home. ALL tutoring will take place in ET236. This means the tutors won't be kicked out of the room due to scheduling conflicts. Also, this room is open for anyone to use through out the day for students to study in groups, use computers, and printing.

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.
