    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    You don't have much of a choice during freshman year introduction courses for engineering majors. Still, if you find yourself in ME104, it is definitely a good intro course with many books and materials. However, attending class suffices for any readings you have to do. The prof. makes sure everyone is engaged and understands the material; you can hear stories from upperclassmen how he asks so many questions on presentation projects.

    Course highlights:

    Tension and Compression forces within beams, Elastic Modulus, and other factors affecting a beam, structures of trusses, different modes of failure in a truss (crushing, tension, buckling), verification of trusses, masonry structures, forces and general physics knowledge, and even cantilever beams. We learn how to use software to design bridges and we verify those bridges for projects. We even create and test it out with real accurate measurements and data.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend class. Going to a 70,000+ university isn't something I can afford to waste. Read the books in the library. Thankfully there is a separate library for engineering and sciences. Attend TA office hours. Sometimes they give more details and feedback on the course material.

    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.
