Pracs (or labs) let you apply the ideas, theories and techniques you have been studying. They can reinforce your lecture work, help with your subject revision and teach some key hands-on skills. Even if you don't do much hands-on work as a professional engineer, it is important that you understand the techniques relevant to your work.
