    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class requires a lot of group work. You are graded on your "teamwork" skills which is really subjective... For my project I worked very hard and he took off points and when I approached him he just said my team mates graded me. I do not pay my tuition to be graded by other people in class. Rubrics given in class are sometimes confusing, and you will get points taken off on assignments for minuscule things despite following the rubric.

    Course highlights:

    You learn how to work with different individuals. You learn how to manage teams/how to work on a team efficiently. You learn about the engineering design process and what it's like to be an engineer. The service learning project was the worst project ever (hard...) as he continuously makes you go back and redefine your problem definition. When you ask him for help, he won't help you he will just be rude and sarcastic. The most irritating thing about this class is the fact that he will take points off for the most ridiculous reasons and when you ask for help he doesn't help.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just show up for class. Get on his good side. If you can help it, make sure your team is responsible. The first project is really easy, the second project sucks.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it teaches all the nuts and bolts of the design process, that are often overlooked.

    Course highlights:

    building a straw tower able to hold 5kg was the best part of the class. Learning how to think outside of the box in terms of the design process was a great thing I learned

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just keep up on the work she gives you. Its not a hard class if you stay involved.

    Be sure to swap contact information when you first meet your teammates. Communication is key.
