This class was tough.
Kurwitz's ENGR 111 class is definetly tough, in fact, many people said that he had one of the hardest foundations of engineering classes offered; however, he cares. Kurwitz did not make the class hard for the sake of making it hard, but because he wanted to be sure that we were prepared for the rigors of engineering, one of the hardest majors offered.
I absolutely loved working on the class projects, even if there was a lot of work and frustration involved. There was no greater feeling than when after hours of fine tuning and trial and error, our robot finally performed as expected. I also enjoyed getting to work with a single team all throughout the same semester because it allowed the team bond to grow and eventually the team became a well-oiled machine.

Advice for students:
Be prepared for the seemingly endless frustration developing and putting together your semester project. You will need to put in the late nights if you plan on doing anything besides classes, which I also recommend. Finally, it is very helpful for the team effort if every member has a specialty. For example, my team had one member dedicated to the building of the robot and I was the teams dedicated programmer. It helps the team run more efficiently than if everyone is general.
