    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I learned a lot of valuable information in this course. It was interesting, engaging, and challenging. I developed my problem solving skills and advanced my knowledge of thermodynamics.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was the analysis of different cycles. For example, we spent several weeks analyzing Rankine Steam cycles. This topic was highly relevant, as most power plant still utilize the Rankine cycle. Some of the other cycles that we talked about include vapor compression, diesel, Brayton, and Otto cycles.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course you have to go beyond just memorizing the equations. You have to truly develop your problem solving skills. My best advice to understand the subject and to do well in the course is to thoroughly do the homework and really understand the problem solving methodology. On the exams they won't give you problems that you have seen before; you will have to take what you have learned and apply it to a new situation.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was explained to me by a mechanical engineer as a form of accounting. You figure out what you do know, then using the basic equations fill in your blanks. If you can do that, then you are golden.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that it isn't going to be as stright forward as you think if you aren't a mechanical engineer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework and then redo the homework before the exam. Usually the porblems in the homework are really similar to those in the exam.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You really need to understand the concepts to do well on the exams. Can't get away by bullshitting the exams or the homeworks. You really need to pay attention in the classes!

    Course highlights:

    Apart from this class being difficult, you learn a lot of new things from this class. Which I am sure you'd use later in your life if you choose to be an engineering major. It also depends which professor teaches this course, so make sure you get a good professor because a bad prof + thermo can be a fatal combination!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do you homeworks on your own and pay extra attention in class!
