    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Unfair grader but useful information and something I tend to use everyday now.

    Course highlights:

    I can now code really well in VBA

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely practice coding. It doesnt do well to not have any practice. Also the only test we had was on the math so dont become distracted solely on coding make sure you know the math behind what you are doing.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Unfortunately, petroleum engineers are required to take this course. It is one of the most difficult classes I have taken, and it is very time consuming. It is a two hour credit, but the projects and codes take a very long time to do and understand.

    Course highlights:

    You learn that Excel is a programmable system that can do many functions other than making lists and charts. As well as how to be very patient, because it can take a while before you understand the coding or the language of VBA. You definitely need to get your hands on old codes, especially ones that work.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read over your code after the lab because that is when it is the freshest. It gets incredibly difficult if you wait to look over the code and try to understand what the function is actually doing. Go to the TAs because they are filled with useful information, and they are usually really good at explaining the process. Be sure to go back to LearnSmart for the final exam because Tyagi likes to pull general questions from homework, and the reading.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is brutal. Programming can be incredibly difficult, BUT being able to program in VBA is one of the MOST useful skills you can take away from this engineering program. Although the computations may seem obnoxiously tedious (because they are), they are actually exceedingly useful, and this is something the teachers fail to mention.

    Course highlights:

    VBA coding in excel. This along with competence in using Excel are skills I use VERY often in my work place.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work your tail off and don't give up. You can make it through.
