Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would definitely recommend this class. Its so comprehensive and is a great foundation course for Mechanical Engineering.
Course highlights:
This course starts off in 2D rigid body dynamics and covers multiple coordinate systems. It works up to vibrations and damped responses.
Hours per week:
12+ hours

Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Excellently designed course, with the textbooks written by the professors themselves. You learn a few small concepts at a time, but you begin to combine these at the end to solve fairly difficult problems. It's a great course with fun experiments, simple equations, easy calculations and very doable exams.
Course highlights:
The course teaches the fundamentals of dynamics. You learn equations and concepts for 2 dimensions, but all the while, are given peeks into its applications in 3 dimensions. You learn about straight-line motion, rotation, accelerations, momentum, angular momentum, oscillations and the effects of forces on motion. You deal with a whole variety of mechanical phenomenon and types of mechanical objects, and you'll come out of the course being able to explain most everyday activities.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Do the homework problems yourself. You need to submit 2 per class. Even if your friend is offering it to you, do it yourself. Each problem takes, on average, 15-20 mins to do by yourself. The amount you learn from these will save you from spending a lot of time studying, before the exams.
