    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It does teach you a lot about the properties of materials and how they can be manipulated in the real world.

    Course highlights:

    I was exposed to the different classes of materials: metals, ceramics, semiconductors, and polymers. Each class have their own strengths and weaknesses. Some conduct electricity while others are ductile. This knowledge will be pretty useful in the future.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you attend lectures and all the quiz sessions. Watching the pre-lecture videos and reading the textbook is essential in succeeding this class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr Huang is a fantastic professor. If anyone says they can't understand her accent I think they're making excuses. If you engage and ask questions/participate this class helps you understand how materials behave on the most fundamental level. The TA is no longer there, but Trevor was fantastic. You might think the grading is harsh for sig figs but it's about paying attention to detail and conditioning good habits. One of my favorite courses.

    Course highlights:

    Why materials behave the way that they do on a molecular level, too much to mention. Fundamental course for design of any kind of engineering.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book. Read the book before class. Review the book and notes after class. Go to ta's office hours.
