    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Statics is required for most engineering students because it incorporates the basic fundamentals of physics and mechanical properties. Statics involves the introduction of free body diagrams and shear/moment diagrams which are later used in upper-level courses.

    Course highlights:

    I built upon previous knowledge of physics to solve applicable problems involving static equilibrium. I learned about 2 and 3 dimensional analysis of structures like trusses, cantilever beams, and bridges. I learned about shear forces, bending moments, moments of inertia, and instant centers.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice!! It is easier to understand the material when it is constantly used in examples. Do not get intimidated or give up because it seems impossible. There are plenty of examples and help online, so be resourceful. Go to office hours for your teacher or TA if you are having trouble, most teachers genuinely do not want to see anyone fail a class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course due to how easily you can relate this course to real life. The professor does a fantastic job teaching this rather difficult material in a very simple way.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course had to be the study of internal forces in machines. The only word I could use to describe this section of the class is absolutely astonishing.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say do not fall behind. Also if you don't get the material you should take to the internet to learn the material on your own. I recommend the YouTube channel 'statics the easy way'.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Zaurin is one of the most fair, caring, and interesting professors you can take at the college of engineering. I would always recommend to take him in every class he teaches.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to work hard and manage time in his course. He taught us that there are no shortcuts, and if you put in the time you can learn. He is a big advocate on learning more than what is taught in the classroom as well with his extra credit project he offers to his students in the class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Complete all of the homework that he gives out, and attend the SARC sessions. The SARC sessions were a great help, and the teacher assistant usually has a good idea what will be on the exams. The sessions also help students learn from one another.
