    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While simplistic in theory, actually practicing teamwork and project design is difficult. The class gives a small experience of how to conduct one's self in such situations.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that prototypes are an important stage in the design process. Without them a team cannot truly decide if their machination will be functional or not.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Plan ahead for meeting times, because last minute scheduling causes frenzies and anxiety.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I learned to work as a team and fill out paperwork but it was required so if you don't have to take it I wouldn't sign up for it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to work with a group of strangers and also how to fill out various memos and other engineering paperwork

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it and get it over with freshman year so that you are working with people your own age

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to put in a lot of work if your group does not contribute.
