    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is the best way to see if you fit in on becoming an aerospace engineer or a general engineer. I have worked on realistic projects in the course. The course offers a real taste of the world to an incoming undergraduate. Plus, it helps you gain experience within the first year in college. This experience allows you to build up your resume.

    Course highlights:

    Experience is the main reason for taking this class. I was able to add realistic projects that real aerospace engineers do on a daily basis. However, the most important thing I learned was the operation of a team and how the team can work on real-world problems under limited time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    From my experience, I highly suggest you have an online calendar to keep schedules updated for group projects and a planner. Always have your binder super organized. Have your EGR 101 book on you at all times. Be sure to read the chapter assigned to you. If you want to become an outstanding engineer, the skills and tips given in this book cannot be found on the internet.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a great introductory course for all things engineering. There were so many hands-on activities we performed and videos we watched. This course was specifically focused towards aeronautical engineering, so we learned about aircraft vehicles-from the ground up!

    Course highlights:

    I discovered more ways of thinking-thinking like an engineer is key! I was taught to think about things more creatively and more "outside the box." There were many things we did to aid in this such as: building a marshmallow tower that had to be supported by only raw spaghetti, watching several Ted Talks, and designing our own aircraft (the end of course aircraft project) that had to have specific features, abilities, dimensions, and more. This course was one of the first that I have taken at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, and it was so far the most entertaining and eye-opening. This college is definitely the top of my list. It is such a prestigious university.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You'll need a good binder to organize all of the papers you will receive. An expanding accordion filer would be best.
