    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Atkinson is an amazing teacher! This course would be difficult if it wasn't for her teaching skills. She presented the material in a way that everyone would understand and made sure that everyone knew what they were doing. Machine design is a combination of dynamics and statics to put it simply. If you do not have a good base in those subjects then the class will be very difficult. I did not have a good base understanding of these subjects at the beginning of the class, but had a very good hold on the subjects, plus the machine design subject very well by the end of the class. The material itself was very interesting and is something that I will actually use in the manufacturing industry.

    Course highlights:

    It's a class that teaches you real-life manufacturing information. It is definitely a huge learning experience. The class covered subjects such as gear ratios, stress and strain on different tools and object, the life of a certain material when being used at different levels of stress, and other manufacturing-related topics on the life of tools and materials. It also partly covered how to make a tool stronger or to last longer.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you have a very firm grasp on statics, solids and dynamics. Otherwise this class will be very difficult. Also, make your own formula sheet that is organized by topic. It will help greatly when it comes to the final project and exam.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep all your notes, quizzes, and exams. They are perfect for study material. It's good to have it all to be able to look back at it during different classes.
