New announcements will be posted here in reverse chronological order.

Fri Apr 25, 2014

  • The Final Exam marks, the overall letter grades, and the updated Verilog labs are now on ePost (these grades are unofficial until approved). The letter grades are based on the weighted sum of the three components: Midterm, Final, and Labs. If you suspect errors in your letter grade, take one of the following actions depending on the type of error: If you see an arithmetic error (i.e. the posted component marks do not add up to the posted letter grade) then email me. On the other hand if you suspect an error in the marking of your final exam, then wait until the test papers are in the Department Office (around the middle of May) and then request a copy of your exam from the Dept Office and, if needed, submit a petition to the Dept Office.
