    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    ENGR 141 is so much more helpful than the regular first year engineering class. You learn programming logic and syntax for python3, MATLAB, and C, in addition to robotics. Team dynamics, problem solving, and professional presentations were the main focuses of this class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned three programming languages and consider myself proficient at flow-charting and debugging as a result. I am experienced at team collaboration and decision-making from the countless team meetings that were required by this course. This class also requires field trips to a variety of engineering companies, which give students an experience with industry work.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Work out any problems with your team early on and if you can't resolve problems on your own, talk to your professor for potential solutions. Start on bonus activities and and post activities the day they are assigned. If you wait until the night before, you will not finish! Don't miss any EYMs or IFTs or you will not pass the class!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Highly challenging but worthwhile course. Prepared me for subsequent engineering courses.

    Course highlights:

    Learned the basics of computer programming and engineering project management. Term project culminated in the construction of a robot designed to complete a challenge.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up on the readings and work on the homework before it is due or else the work will pile up and you will fall behind.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great for students who love a challenge and don't mind a little bit of hard work. The type of student who excels in this class is someone who is motivated by their own drive to succeed and is naturally curious about abroad range of topics. The range of topics covered in this class is diverse but you will leave every class feeling that much more prepared to do actual engineering. Some of the topics covered are: -The engineering design process -Brainstorming -Working in teams -Computer Programming -CAD -Problem solving tactics -Quantitative decision making -Engineering Ethics -Principles of mathematical modeling -Statistics -Much, much more

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning new programming languages and having the chance to apply them to projects. Almost everything you do in this class will make you feel like you are doing something an actual engineer would do, and that's because you ARE doing comething an actual engineer would do.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is a lot of work. Don't be fooled by the fact that it is only 3.5 credit hours. Many weeks, it will be the majority of your homework, and you will sometimes spend all day working with your team. The feeling of accomplishment that success in this class give you will make all of the work worth it, however.
