Questions about Microsoft Project?

Microsoft Project is available in the EE Senior Design Lab, the ME PC Lab, and the Gleason Computer Lab, as well as a few other computer labs on campus. While you are not required to use Project to build your team's MSD schedule, it is a fairly straightforward tool designed for just this purpose.

4 Sept 2006 Before class on Friday, September 8, you should do the following:

  1. Familiarize yourself with this website. In particular, edit your user information, review course information, and review information about available projects. This website is a work-in-progress so please be patient as the site continues to evolve. Use the bugtracker to submit questions or problems.
  2. Purchase the textbook and read chapters 1,2,4, and 16. This material will help you get the most from the all-day workshop on September 8.
  3. Attend one of three (optional) "Project Information Sessions." Faculty will be available to provide overviews and answer questions about the four project "tracks" and specific projects within those tracks:
    • Monday, Sept. 4, 5:00-6:00pm (room 09-1129)
    • Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1:00-2:00pm (room 09-1129)
    • Wednesday, Sept. 6, 9:00-10:00am (room 09-1129)
  4. Bid on a project track before 6:00pm on Wednesday, Sept. 6. Each "track" includes several specific projects. Faculty will assign you to a specific project within a track -- you will be notified of your project by the end of the day on Thursday, Sept. 7. (See below)

Classes will start on Friday, Sept. 8, with an all-day workshop (9:00-12:15, 2:00-5:30) in the Xerox Auditorium. All-day workshops will continue on weeks 2&3. See the course syllabus and schedule below for more information.

We are all looking forward to a productive and enjoyable quarter!!
