    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a required course for a chemical engineering major, so if you're on that path you don't get much of a choice. But, if you're a student exploring majors, this is an interesting class that opens the door to what chemical engineering is all about, without being overwhelming.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Richards is a invaluable professor at MSU! Her genuine interest in the subject and her students shines through when she teaches.( And this is a common phenomenon for professors in the department!) Specifically the lab portion of this course was my favorite part. Every lab is a different and interesting; you get to dip you toes into the huge pool of opportunity that chemical engineering offers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class! Use office hours! Ask questions! If you aren't comfortable asking in class, use office hours or ask your lab TAs. Learn about your TAs, learn what they're doing at MSU now, its usually really cool research! Make study groups to work on homework with.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Heys is an amazing professor, he really cares about you as an individual and teaches you how to think like an engineer and utilize programing in your problem solving.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to use Python which will be a very helpful tool for the rest of my college career.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework promptly and take advantage of the computer lab hours, it will help your homework grade immensely.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    As a freshman, I was not sure what pathway I wanted to take. This class is a simple (and rather easy) introductory class to chemical engineering. I decided to stay with the major, but many of my friends did not. So many people drop from chemical engineering later on after wasting time and money, I very much recommend taking this class to see early on if you are interested in the subject matter.

    Course highlights:

    Great professor, I learned that I am very interested in chemical engineering; many of my friends did not and were able to switch their major before wasting a lot of time and money.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Great intro course! Do not judge the difficulty of chemical engineering courses down the track based on this class; it is quite easy. However, see if you are honestly interested in the subject material; this is what you may be doing for the next four years!
