    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Make no mistake - this is a difficult course. Soil mechanics are harder to grasp because they involve moving parts and tiny elements not easily imagine by civil engineers. But it's also a great course, with a great teacher. You can learn a lot from Dr Ooi, just keep an open mind. Definitely pay attention in lab - that stuff WILL show up on exams.

    Course highlights:

    This course (and CEE 455) made me want to be a geotechnical engineer! I love learning about soil and foundations because they are so important in the real world - structures are founded in the ground and it's important to have geotechnical engineers make sure those foundations are safe.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in lab - stuff will show up on exams. Make sure you understand concepts, rather than memorize equations. Go to office hours. Dr Ooi is really nice and he'll help you out.
