Guideline for students

Dear Students,

Before performing an experiment, please make sure that you:

  1. Have downloaded the relevant lab sheet.
  2. Have read and understood what the experiment is about (such as what will be done, what results are expected).
  3. Have prepared with some theoretical background related to the experiment. Demonstrators will be asking some questions related to the experiment before performing the experiment.
  4. Write something in a log book/paper which is related to the experiment.
  5. Are available on the date and time of the experiment.
  6. Bring along your own printed lab sheet to the lab because the lab has only 1 copy of each lab sheet.


*** Students are advised to keep their lecture notes of previous semesters and bring the related lecture notes along during experiment sessions for reference.


During the experiment, please make sure that you:

  1. Bring along your log book/papers for recording the results.
  2. Bring along the lab sheet (for your own convenience).
  3. Wear shoes, not slipper (for safety reasons).
  4. Come on time.
  5. Do not come later than 10 minutes on the scheduled lab time. Coming late will cause marks to be deducted.
  6. Do not bring any food and drink into the lab.
  7. Work together and communicate with your group members.
  8. Perform the experiment according to the lab sheet and demonstrator’s guide.
  9. Record all findings in a LOG BOOK/paper. They will be checked by demonstrators.
  10. For experiments using PC, save all results on the PC that you have used. This must be done by ALL students in each group. The demonstrator or technician will collect your results from the PC that you have used in the end of the lab session.
  11. Know what you are being assessed by the lab demonstrator (see the Lab and Teamwork Rubrics).
  12. Obey the technician’s and demonstrator’s orders.


After the experiment:

  1. Sign the attendance sheet.
  2. Leave the lab quietly with all your belongings.
  3. Write your lab report only using the Excel file provided in your Spectrum. Visit your lab course Spectrum and look for "Lab report file" to download the file.


Lab report Submission and Deadline:

  1. Students can only submit their lab report after the relevant experiment has been performed in the lab.
  2. Lab report must be submitted ONLINE through Spectrum before the given deadline. Please visit your lab course Spectrum for submission.
  3. No hardcopy submission is required.


Have a nice experiment everyone!!
