I'm an international student looking to come to UVA for the fall semester. I've organized with my home institution to receive credit for a number of courses. The list of units I have arranged to receive credit for do not include the associated lab courses.
Is it possible to do a course without the associated lab? Will I struggle in the course if I do this? For example, if I did the course ECE 3250 Electromechanical Energy Conversion (I know this doesn't run during the fall), would I be forced to do ECE 3255 Electromechanical Energy Conversion Laboratory? Would I be at a significant disadvantage for not doing the lab?
