    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very interesting class that you learn a lot in. While being a very challenging class, it is still a lot of fun learning what you learn. I would recommend this class to anyone that wants to be proficient with real life skills.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to program with java, CAD, build rockets, 3D print, and how to think like an engineer. In this course, you are an engineer and it is much like how I expect real life will be once I have a job in this field.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you pay attention, this is a very fast moving course. Also, use all of your time in class, it is harder to find the answers to the questions you may have online and in class you can just ask Mr. Supal.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is by far the most unique class I've ever had. Mr Supal is a genius, but can be a bit scatter-brained at times. But at the end of the day he cares about his students and wants the best for them

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the past few years with Mr Supal, I've gained a lot of knowledge about how to CAD items and parts, and how to program in java. He has also taught us a few odd subjects such as ARDUINO programming and electrical resistance.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be able to organize yourself. While Mr Supal knows a lot about his subject, he can sometimes go too fast for someone who is just starting java and CAD.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would 100% recommend this course if you are a number crunching, hands-on, and a visual person who enjoys using AutoCAD and SolidWorks. CAD can be taken as an alternative class for math, meaning if you hate Algebra, Geometry, Trig, and so on, you can still get the math credit from taking this class. Not only that, but you can also get the VPA credit as well, so no need to take Art Foundations or Painting if you needed to. My CAD class was placed in another building called the Career Preparation Center (CPC), so I needed to take a bus or drive with a friend to get to this building. Reason being is because CPC is like a small separate school filled with other career building classes, such as: Dental Associations, Mechanics, Business, Bio-Mechanical Engineering, Computer Information Systems, and so on. If your school has CAD as an option, take it!

    Course highlights:

    Looking back, I learned how to correctly dimension 2D sketches on AutoCAD and on paper. I then transferred my 2D drafts from paper to 3D objects on the computer using SolidWorks. From entering CAD, I had a great experience traveling to other buildings because of the field trips and learning how businesses use SolidWorks to make new products. I've learned how my designs can be 3D printed. Best part, I got the great opportunity to be entered into the MITES Competition. I placed 8th place of the State. CAD has helped me determine what career I want to go into, which is Mechanical Engineering. If I didn't enter, I would still be trying to find out what career I want to make. If you enjoy seeing numbers everyday, sitting in a classroom where everything is hands on, visual, and entertaining, you will for sure walk into this class everyday with a smile. However, if you hate math, angles, or sitting in a chair for almost 2 hours everyday from being on the computer, I would not recommend this class. I loved CAD 1 so much where I signed myself up for CAD 2 and 3. In CAD 2, I get to use NX engineering software and in CAD 3, I get to learn aviation through the online program. You truly learn something new everyday from this class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have any questions don't be shy to ask, especially if you are new. I nearly asked more than one question a day. The only dumb questions you have, are the ones you aren't asking. Who knows, your question may have helped another student who was to shy to ask. From the beginning of the year, I knew nothing. I didn't know how to draft, dimension, nor did I know half the terms we used. But by the end of the year, I was helping other students with their work. As long as you truly try your best in the class, you will do a superb job I guarantee it. Also, another helpful hint, most often you will be staring at a computer screen most of the time if you want your work to be turned in on time, so if you get dry eyes, bring artificial tears if you have to. If your back starts hurting or you haven't stared away from the screen in 30 minutes, get up for 2 minutes and walk around. And the last helpful tip, SAVE THE WORK! If the software happens to crash and you did not save the work, that is on you, not the software. I've had that happen where I lost an hours of work because I forgot to save, my mistake. CAD is an all year class, so get along with your classmates. If you're shy, just ask the one question, why did you sign up for this class? That will get a conversation started.
