    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Engineering Fundamentals 151 was a class that truly allowed me to understand the beginnings of what the requirements were for engineering. Whether it be aerospace or nuclear engineering, without being taught the fundamentals that I learned through this course, I would not have truly understood the rigor behind what I needed to do and learn. The people whom I have met and the friends I have made throughout my time taking this course has become some of my closest friends for we understood the difficulties and struggles of being engineering majors. Engineering Fundamentals is a pivotal class that everyone should take for they will be better informed and it will become the cornerstone for their engineering career path.

    Course highlights:

    The class’ ability to capture the classroom’s attention was something that was truly impressive. From the professors’ experiments that they showcased in class to the labs that our classes’ had on Tuesday and Thursday made the difficult course of Engineering Fundamentals more enjoyable and educational. Additionally the professors’ humour during in and outside of class allowed me and the rest of the class to have a fun experience as we began our journey of being engineers. Although the class was difficult, this developed my character to work harder and gave me scope of what was required of me as I began my first few steps of being a civil engineering major.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The transition between high school and college is a big one. Whether it be students learning about themselves or learning to be more independent in lack of their parents’ presence, it is essential that students learn to quickly adapt to their surroundings and understand what must be done effectively and efficiently. Engineering Fundamentals 151 is a class that any student could use advice on. Whether it be to study hard or study late into the night, it is important to delegate his or her time each day on working on engineering fundamentals homework. Because without this time commitment, one may become to relaxed and begin to forget the essential equations or concepts that will be later important. From knowing how to use the projectile formula or drawing a correct free body diagram, without some of the core fundamentals concepts that one learns in Engineering fundamentals, it is best to distribute studying across a week. This advice will allow a student to truly excel within his or her career path and teach them the importance of studying.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's necessary for engineering but McCord is a bad professor.

    Course highlights:

    Basic physics and a review of calculus

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't get distracted. It is important to stay focused on this class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is mandatory, but take the normal version over the honors if you can. The work load I. The 151 is the equivalent of a 10 hour class, and 157 a 15. The class is lecture format and has a final project that is different each year.

    Course highlights:

    The final project was by far the most interesting, taking the concepts we learned about all Yar and applying them to a machine built in the innovation and collaboration studios 3d printers and laser cutters. It is a great first semester class at utk.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Doing the homework early increases its value to 110%, use this as homework is around 30% of your overall grade. The professor's also curve one of the 4 tests based on the class average
