Teaching Schedule


There are two x 1 hour lectures per week (Monday at 15:00 CAST2, Wednesday at 15:00 BURN2). Every student will be streamed to two x two hour laboratory sessions per week where they will work through practical exercises. Typically a student should expect to be able to complete the laboratory sessions more or less within the two hour period - as long as they have done some preparation prior to attending the laboratory.

Assessment


There are three components to the COMP112 assessment package:

  • Assessed labs are worth 1% or 2% each (Total of 22%).
  • A project mark-up plan is due in Week 6 (6%) and the project final submission is due in Week 12 (12%).
  • A final exam (worth 60%).
