    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As a freshman, it’s difficult to tell whether engineering is right for you. This course shows the process that real engineers use, allowing you to confirm your passion for engineering.

    Course highlights:

    FED 101 is a basic intro to engineering where students learn the process of designing and constructing real life structures used in the industry using real equipment.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice would be to pay attention in class. The course is three hours once a week. Pay attention to all the small assignments and keep them because they are all involved in the final project.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend FED 101 to all freshman mechanical engineers, because it inspires innovation and creativity while understanding the principles of engineering. By taking the class you can understand how the parts in an object work and it can inspire you to make better improvements to that original invention. I believe that with this class it can lead freshman to develop big ideas for the future.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the concepts of reverse engineering, which I believe is an essential for mechanical engineers, to develop better innovations. Reverse engineering is basically taking apart an object and understanding how it works. Its a skill engineers do to make improvements or create something new by understanding a previous model. I have also learned CAD modeling, a skill that is required to master for this major.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course you have do the homework. If CAD modeling is brand new for you I would suggest try playing with it and looking up tutorials to help you with the homework. Only practicing and perfecting your skills in modeling, will help you get through this class.
