Great Intro to the Subject
Math-heavy
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This class is required for all freshmen engineering students, but Professor Lea has been a great professor for both freshmen engineering classes. He genuinely cares about the students and while he makes the class difficult, he also will help students in any way he can. The class is a basic overview of engineering topics that will be discussed in later engineering classes at the university, so it is important to pay attention and practice the skills that are being taught in the class. For future engineers, the class is intriguing and fun, as there are design/building projects that cover topics in statics, aerodynamics, and electrical circuits.
Course highlights:
In this class, topics such as engineering economics, engineering ethics, statics, digital logic, and basic physics are covered. Since the class is an overview of other engineering courses, there is a broad spectrum of topics in the class. The class is also designed to help students decide which kind of engineering they would like to pursue: mechanical or electrical and computer engineering. I also learned in this class that it is extremely important to study a lot for engineering classes, as they are the most important classes that engineering students take.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Study. All the time, every day. It is important to take this class to better understand engineering so that students will be able to know if they are right for engineering, and it is important to do well in the class. If a student completes all the homework and studies for the quizzes/exams, they will succeed.
