    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Would recommend to any student who has shown interest in the field of engineering because this course helps students to explore the different kinds of engineering disciplines available in the world today

    Course highlights:

    Definitely knowledge on design and structural development of simple and compound machines. One project is called "The Compound Machine" In groups composed of three members, we were given the task of designing and building a machine that followed certain criteria and constraints given by the instructor and as matter of competition, we were challenged to make it reach a Mechanical advantage of 45. Our machine was composed of gear systems, pulleys, wheel and axles and it successfully accomplished task at hand

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    know that this course is not an honors course, yet it has various elements of one. Therefore, close examination is advised prior to selecting this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a super fun course and if you want to be an engineer like I do, then you should head that direction.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to program a robot using "RobotC" and the latest project we finished about the obstacle course was a lot of fun!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not get lazy and let other students do the work for you because in the end it will not work out in your favor. And if you don't understand something ask for help, it's very important to understand the material, like in other courses.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course better prepares the students for the engineering field and has resources that are still used in later engineering courses.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights within the course was that was a decently easy course as long as you paid attention and did the work that expands your knowledge of engineering. In the course a subject that was easy to pull out of the class that is used in physics and other engineering courses was electricity.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to understand some basic geometry and algebra before going into the course since you have to use a lot of equations to solve out for different values like when solving for truss forces, electricity(Resistance, Voltage, and or Current), and thermodynamics. This basic knowledge really will help the student succeed in the course. Pay close attention to subjects being taught.
