    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for any engineering student who is unsure of which branch of engineering to go to and if they want to be in engineering at all. While the bulk of the work in this class mainly focuses on mechanical engineering, everyone can learn from working in a group.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course is working in a group. While some have trouble navigating groups, this is a teaching experience that can apply to all majors. Even if you decide to change branches of engineering, you will be exposed to what other branches of engineering do in both lectures and labs.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do extra credit. Avoid skipping out on assignments. Listen to every piece of advice about navigating groups and group work given by the professors. Reach out for help early. Communicate with your group. Make friends with your group mates, not enemies, because you will most likely see each other again. Remember your teaching assistants are your friends.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This intro class is an easy begining step into a engineering career. It will weed out the most unlikely students to complete engineering degrees, and will encourage others.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the engineering basics, and built an autonomous hovercraft. This course also includes group dynamics that help prepare students for working with other engineers in a work setting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure your group is functional and that all persons are working. Freeloaders try not to freeload to much because your group will get tired of your b.s..

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a tough course, but you get lots of hands-on experience! The coursework includes instruction on basic construction, soldering, and programming, along with first-hand experience on the engineering design process and how to work in a team.

    Course highlights:

    The hands-on skills of construction, soldering, and programming I gained in this course have been extremely valuable in my time as an engineering student. I also gained important skills for teamwork. Working with a team is a huge part of engineering and isn't always easy, but the instructors gave us great pointers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be the best team player you can be! Divide the work evenly between group members and make sure people know that they are accountable for their tasks. Listen to everyone's ideas and weigh the pros and cons; stay open-minded and don't be afraid to ask for help!
