Explanation of timetables

Timetables are published on School of Engineering and Natural Sciences website.  Drafts of timetables are published in August.  A few days before school starts final drafts are published. 

A timetable could look like this: 
JAR103G f Steind.1 SS, SG, N-132
First there is the code for the course, (JAR103G), then the type of teaching f= lecture. Some courses also include a practical which are marked either d or v (there you can be split into groups which can be from d1-d5 or v1-v5). The teacher will decide which group you will belong to.  Then a short version of the name of the course, then the initial letters of the teacher and then class room.
