    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course for starting out learning about engineering. You initially learn how to do Engineering drawings and how to wire a BoeBot with Arduino coding. This is really helpful for learning C++ code and with learning about wiring and the design process. This class also teaches Solidworks which is great for 3D modeling and a great technical skill to master quickly.

    Course highlights:

    The best part about this course was the design projects that we had to do. First, we had to design a jousting robot that could pop another Bot's balloon to earn points. The other two challenges were at the end of the semester and were to make a robot that could navigate a course autonomously that required distance and bump sensor coding and to make a robot to play basketball on a mini court against another Bot. These projects were fun but also taught us how to work in groups and helped us with our wiring and coding for the class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to the lectures in class and make sure that you really understand drawings, Solidworks, and coding. These are extremely important to the class and classes in the future. If you do not understand anything in the class, make sure you ask the teacher for help or get help from the TA.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I think this course was not only an easy A if you took the time to do the work but it was something worth while. The opportunity to network and get more involved on campus, doing group work, and so much more is there. I mean they give you the tools for you to succeed in the engineering major and it is up to you to take advantage of that. Also I think it becomes another learning tool and reiteration of why you are here.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlights of this course is the Freshman Focus, JUNG-MBTI, and the KGI. Theses are your stepping stones to learn more about you as a person and what is require for you to be the best you there is. What I mean by this is this teaches you a lot about your group dynamics and how you fit in with anyone. Also it tells you who you might not fit in well so that you can be more aware of your surroundings. I learned that I need to challenge myself more to step out.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to just do the work, go to class, and do not slack. This class is an easy one but you get out just as much as you put in. I think this class can sometimes be hard to follow at times because there are many heads but ALWAYS keep your FSAs in the loop.
