Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class was very interesting and fun. It's about medical implants and material properties. We went over a lot of examples relating to stress and tension. At first, I was overwhelmed since I did not know much about stress, tension, or material properties in general. However, Professor Wynarsky did an amazing job teaching the class. He made it seem so simple, and in reality, it was pretty simple. All you need to do is pay close attention to his lectures and do the homework. There's a lot of formulas and calculations involved, but its very straightforward and fun.
The highlight of the course is the project that is turned in at the end of the semester. Each group is allowed to pick some sort of medical device. Once the group has their device, they are suppose to do research on it and look at the material properties and the medical problem it helps treat. This project includes two oral presentations that include the medical device and its features, as well as a design recommendation. Additionally, the project includes a 15 page research paper that talks about the device and its properties.

Advice for students:
I would highly recommend getting a head start on the project so you have plenty of time to recover if something goes wrong. The reason I say this is because Professor Wynarsky will look at each group's progress occasionally and he might make you go back and correct something. I just want students to be aware of their time because it can cost you a lot of points if you run out of time or if something goes wrong.
