UG students in the three year program are required to meet with a CT during the first semester of their first year, the second semester of their second year, and to review their final year project progress report during their third year. We anticipate that UG students in the four year program will have similar requirements. An online booking system will be released in October 2012 (for first year students) and March 2013 (for students preparing their FYPs) to make an appointment to meet with us.

You can however, approach us throughout the year to assist you with any work you need help with.
