Pop-Up Classes

Pop-up classes are taught to supplement knowledge or to teach EIC equipment use, an EIC process, or how to use a piece of software. The EIC also maintains a standing reservation on Monday evenings for any student organization to host a corporate or organizational training session in the EIC. Please contact the EIC manager directly or use the google form (EIC Room Reservation form) to request this space.

Wednesday, 3 p.m. is the weekly date for popup class in the summer.
