Each student will be allocated to a tutorial group,
which will be held once a week throughout the semester.
Demonstrators will be available at the labs to help with the course.
Some lab scripts will be provided, designed to help with the coursework, and you are strongly encouraged to go through them, but they are not formally assessed.
Four items of assessed coursework are associated with the course, two each for the Software Engineering and Computer Systems threads.
