Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because students can have a chance to make a design as a group and experience themselves any machines and tools in the machine shop. Moreover, its is helpful for students to learn in advance in order to get ready for their future job about mechanical design. Therefore, students can learn not only working on a design, but also interacting with teammates.
This course not just includes the course materials, but also requires a mechanical design that we have to make outside the classroom. I learnt that building a design requires a lot of carefulness and preciseness. If we want to make a design firm, we have to make sure the calculations are accurate and the building materials are right.

Advice for students:
I suggest that you can ask more questions on the course materials because they can be hard most of time and hard to understand by studying yourself. While making a design, you have to participate more with other teammates so you can know exactly what you guys are making since it requires team work.
