    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is offered at UF by two different professors, Professor Crane and Professor Kumar, both of which have two very different ideologies about teaching the class. I took Professor Crane who offers an arguably "harder version" of this class because Solidworks is the life and soul of this class, as opposed to Professor Kumar who I have heard uses Solidworks simply as a tool. Mechanical and Aerospace engineers are required to take this course and it is optional for Industrial Engineers. Besides the point, if you are in a STEM major, this course is very interesting to take because it may be the first computer/software heavy course you will take (and it was for me). This course exposes you to real software an engineer uses in their careers and helps you think creatively. Solidworks is a software that lets you develop parts, drawings and assemblies of machinery parts that can be applicable for many different uses such as 3D printing, stress-tests, etc.

    Course highlights:

    This was by far my favorite course of my spring semester because it was the most "fun" and the material allowed you to experience something you may never have done before. I got a thrill being able to model parts on my laptop and have those "AHA"moments when you figure out the best approach to modeling a part. The highlights of the class were coming to class and being able to work in a group to figure out how to make parts, drawings and assemblies, it made me feel like I was actually in a design team.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although it is harder and more time intensive, if you want more experience with the program Solidworks, take Professor Crane, especially as Mechanical and Aerospace, who need this class as a prerequisite for Design and Manufacturing Lab, which utilizes Solidworks daily (and all my advice will pertain to the class Professor Crane taught). Crane's class also gives you the chance to get certification in Solidworks. You must have a functioning laptop and GET A PORTABLE MOUSE. You have homework at the end of every week and do NOT wait until the day of to complete this homework, especially as the class progresses because despite your skills increase with new things you learn on the program, the homework gets more intensive and time-consuming to complete (which is why although it is a 3 credit class, you just meet Monday and Wednesday because of the time you will need to turn in your homework Friday night, in place of class on Friday). Crane has a set of videos for you to watch before class and he speaks very slow so if you have Google Chrome, get the video-accelerator extension and watch those videos way faster, saves you a lot of time and those videos are the basis of your daily quizzes and classwork you have when you get to class. Be wary of the end of the year project, hopefully you get a good group who is competent and progress fast with your ideas to get that report right.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very interesting for engineers. It allows you to actual apply the things that you learn in the other class. As long as you watch the videos, and do the homework you will be alright. Just make sure for the GDT quiz you study and are prepared.

    Course highlights:

    How to use Solidworks. It allows you to use this program to convey ideas to professors or future employers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do the homework and really try to learn how to use the program because it will be very beneficial.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very fun and interactive! Lots of fun activities.

    Course highlights:

    The course focuses on 3D interpretation. It allows you to bring 2 dimensional items to life. Solid works is a great tool to bring any project to life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not overthink. The class is easy to get through and there is always someone there to help.
