This class was tough.
This course showed me what the design process looks like. More than that, it is fun! Dr. Rickard is a fantastic professor. He designs the course in clever ways each semester. My project was creating a full mechanical artificial heart, and I learned so much.
I learned the process of design, learned immensely about prototyping with 3D printing, a valuable industry skill which I am still refining, and good parts documentation.

Advice for students:
Put in hours. If you don't you won't gain a lot from the experience. There is a deep well of learning to be had here.
