Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I recommend anyone taking majoring in engineering to take this entry level class with prof. Ciocci.
Course highlights:
Static 2D & 3D equilibrium, joints, bearings, and other mechanic devices
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Always come to class and attempt all recommended problems
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I highly recommend this course because it is a basic foundation for engineers. This course either proves whether you are in the right field or not. This course challenges how you think, and as engineers we are faced with new problems, which needs new solutions. So this course helps you look at problems from different angles to arrive at a solution.
Course highlights:
The highlight of the course is Force. I learned how to identify and solve for forces in 2 and 3D. Also, I learned how to distribute forces, either in tension or compression.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Attend every lecture!! Do a lot of exercises. Do not limit yourself to homework, just do as much as you can. Trust me practice really makes perfect. After every lecture, go over the material covered that day, solve the examples, and do at least two problems before next the next lecture. Never wait till the last minute to study for the exams, because I guarantee you an F. Don't be shy, Ask questions. Don't play yourself thinking you know the material.
