    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a required course for Engineers, and is entirely a group project.

    Course highlights:

    It was interesting because you have to build a hovercraft, and are tested on how well it performs. We learned the engineering design process.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Since it was a group project, it gets really discouraging when the group doesn't work well together. Our problem was that some members just didn't do much. Deal with the problems immediately or they'll last all semester. Also, don't procrastinate on the project.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In this course you can build a hovercraft! It's an amazing course and you will walk away with many skills.

    Course highlights:

    How to build a hovercraft. You'll learn how to build the hovercraft, solder, circuit wiring, and use fans to create a plenum chamber.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard, pay attention in lab, and try to get along with your group members.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a crash course in engineering with a lot of different facets but it was very interesting and I really enjoyed.

    Course highlights:

    We worked in teams throughout the semester and built an autonomous hovercraft. It was very interesting to see what different minds brought different ideas to the group. It was a great exercise in team building as well as basic programming and construction of a craft. I enjoyed the hands-on nature of the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to spend a lot of extra time working with your teams. It is tricky finding times during which all members of the team are available; that was without a doubt our biggest obstacle.
