    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course if you are studying engineering, because it gives you a hands-on experience through project experience. Your work comes together and you arrive at a tangible product at the completion of the course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to make a quadcopter. I learned to use SolidWorks, a 3D CAD program, to design the parts of my vehicle. I developed my soldering skills to ensure that all wired connections were stable. And lastly, I got to see my quadcopter fly in the end.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You are going to be working in a team, so don't be afraid to ask your team members for help.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    We made something FLY. I think that’s amazing: getting a quadcopter off the ground on your own accord. That's gotta be something worth taking a class for; the satisfaction of what you can do. And you make friends along the way; you'll work closely in a group and help each other out.

    Course highlights:

    I had to learn how to calibrate NAZA controls, how to 3D design copter components in SolidWorks, and, hardest of all, I had to build the structure capable of piloting. Of course, I wasn’t alone; I met with my team biweekly and we were determined to see our creation through to the end.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be decent at math; there aren't many homework assignments, but when there are, they're pretty math intensive. You have to know your stuff. That goes for working with SolidWorks too; stay patient and learn it at your own pace. And DO NOT make your propeller guards out of pink polystyrene —it's way too weak.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an important class in teaching students the basics of engineering. It is a class that gives brief overview of the process in which an engineer does his or her job.

    Course highlights:

    I learned soldering, coding arduino, using mechanical tools, and wiring.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Having effective teamwork is a good way of learning what it is like to be an engineer and to pass the class.
