    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    EF 151 gives you all the tools and background you need to be any kind of engineer you want! The professors are beyond helpful and engaging, and the resources they provide you with are indispensable! The class is fun and enriching!

    Course highlights:

    EF 151 covers all of the basic principles of physics and teaches you to think in productive, critical ways that lead to unique solutions and innovations to complex problems. No matter the field you go into, these tools are stupendously helpful in many situations!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    As with most courses, it's pretty important to always attend class, play vigilant attention, and try to work on the homework on the same day you review the material in class. Some of the stuff can be complex at times, so reviewing the same day reinforces the material and minimizes the chances for misunderstanding or forgetting material. You can get extra credit for doing homework early and it's all online. I'd recommend getting every point you can from this. Other than that, enjoy the class and welcome to the college of engineering!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I LOVED EF 151. I enjoyed doing my homework because that is how I learned. If you study the material, take practice tests, and use the resources offered, you will actually learn the physics of engineering.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was the last Module (4 total). It was all about forces in motion, drag, and friction. Seeing the sciences of how the world works to a specific decimal excites me and solving problems as well as finding solutions to real life examples is what drives me through this course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students that understanding concepts is very important. The equations are given to you and they won't change, but if you don't understand equations, then you won't understand when and how to use it. I liked trying to visualize the things happening in real life to see what answers would be like.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I found this course rather enjoyable with the large lectures to throw the information at you quickly and then the smaller lab sections to help learn and apply these skills with real life application and graduate teaching assistants to help with any problems you might have.

    Course highlights:

    The team project at the end of the course was tons of fun being able to apply a little bit of everything we'd learned all year in a group setting. Quite a few of the labs were really enjoyable too.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the homework for 110% credit, it can lead to a major boost in your grade. Keep up in lectures and don't be afraid to ask your TA's questions. Making friends to study and do homework with will help a lot and make the course much more enjoyable.
