Practical and experimental laboratories

The School of Engineering is not able to provide access for taught students to practical and experimental laboratories in Semester 1. This is due to current physical distancing requirements and the high level of occupancy required in many laboratory classes.

Safe access to our practical and experimental labs is not currently possible for teaching and so we have adapted our Semester 1 courses to reflect this.  If your taught course involves practical and experimental laboratory classes, these will be delivered digitally.  More information about how these courses will be delivered will be explained for each course, on its Learn page.

If you are an undergraduate or postgraduate taught student who is undertaking a final year project, it will unfortunately not be possible to carry out work in our laboratories.  You will work with your supervisor to develop a plan to complete your project without the need to carry out any experimental work in a laboratory. 

The School will review this situation in Week 6 of Semester 1, taking into account University and Scottish Government guidance.
