    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It doesn't matter if you want to take it or not, it is required. However, this class isn't that bad if you take the time to do all of the work.

    Course highlights:

    I had to take solids twice. When I took intro to design the following semester, having a good understanding of solids really helped.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try taking it in the summer, the professors are usually better.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this professor for this course specifically, because he does a great job in class to make sure you understand the material. He also makes his self as available as he can be if you need extra office hours for help. You must attend class to get the best learning experience, but it is not mandatory.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would be learning about stress and strain on materials that you will work with in the future. You learn how to find the different types of strains and stresses along with deformations. Being able to find the yielding stress/strain and fracture stress/strain are very important when designing machines and buildings.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to devote time to this course. Do not just look up answers for the homework. Understanding every aspect of the homework is crucial to passing the tests and learning the material. You must go to office hours for help, because at some point you will need help whether you want to admit it or not. Pop quizzes are a thing in this class, so that's another reason to know the material. You will need either the PDF version or a hard copy of the book to succeed.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course of your an engineer because you have to take it and it helps in other courses down the line

    Course highlights:

    What I gained was a better understand for materials as well as its applications, some of these things helped benefit me in later engineering courses

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The course is tough but it is very doable it will get confusing at times but always try and get help from others to better understand you get what you put in.
