    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is definitely a good introduction to the general ideas needed for engineering. The professor may have a hard time to answer our questions in an understandable way, but overall, one should be able to get by with a good intuition and work ethic. Personally, I never needed to attend office hours, but the TAs at the Tech. Center can be very helpful with deep analysis and comprehension of the material - but don't expect them to give you all the answers.

    Course highlights:

    The course provides an overview into Forces, Mechanics, Equilibrium, Statics, as well as the the branches underneath those concepts. We look into shear, torsion, torque, beams, levers, bridges, and other important material. The projects involve working in groups to design and test out an actual bridge design.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Homework is about one every two weeks, but don't think you can do it easily even after understanding the material. It will, regardless of how good you are, take some time, een for the most tedious steps and procedures. But this won't stop people from doing the homework with the TAs (as I mentioned before) the day before homework is due. Still, make sure you take notes and pay attention in class as well as set time outside to learn more deeper into the topics.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very interesting course because you are able to learn about real-life structures!

    Course highlights:

    I gained better knowledge on equilibrium of forces. Most interesting part was learning the software Dr. Frame

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to work consistently, because with engineering of bridges the only work you need is practice.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Excellent course that lets you know if you really want to continue on to engineering. Very passionate professor with a lot of knowledge on his courses and with a great interest on teaching and doing research.

    Course highlights:

    We created our own prototype of a bridge that was evaluated and compared to many other. This kind of projects shows our interest, creativity, and background logical thinking connected to the learned materials.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time with the projects because you will want to perfect them by the end of the semester.
