Students: BSC 411 has 1 hr per week of lecture/computer work from 1-1:50 on Fridays, and a separate 75 min of training per week at the SP8. The lab section schedule will be determined once we know everyone’s availability. There is limited space, so please email email@example.com if you plan to enroll.
