Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content
This paper is taught through tutorials and laboratories. The students are required to attend three laboratory sessions and the sessions place and time will be advised in the first two weeks of the semester. The covered laboratory sessions are combined bending and torsion, motor controller and thick cylinder, and each laboratory requires a laboratory report submission. Additional lecture notes and assignments will be uploaded on Moodle.
