    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is terrifying but a lot of fun at the same time. I really struggled with speaking in front of a larger class, but once I got comfortable and realized that all of the other students and professor were supporting me, I was glad to have the public speaking experience, especially geared toward a professional environment. The assignments in this class were a lot of work but were very useful because I have needed to use the skills such as writing technical instructions and manuals while working at my internship this summer.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the final project, where each group of students came up with a proposal and had to present it to the engineering department. The proposal had to be something that could be implemented at the school, and even though it was intimidating it was great experience because it simulated a real project we would have to do while working.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are always multiple projects going on at the same time, and each project has very specific details and instructions. Make sure that you plan ahead for all of the projects and start working on all of them when they are assigned so you do not fall behind. It is impossible to complete one project in a day and receive a good grade because it is expected that you do your best work, are prepared to present and know the information on the day the project is due, and have all of the parts completed on time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is great for learning how to present technical information to various audiences. This is not something that comes naturally and is a great class for future jobs in which you will need to express technical information to both informed and uninformed audiences.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course for me was being able to present to a class of people that I hardly knew. I have never been able to present very well, but this course very greatly improved my presentation abilities.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you are staying up to date on the readings, on the projects and upcoming presentations. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. If you wait too long for these technical presentations, it will end much worse than procrastination usually does because you have to present whatever crap you managed to come up with the night before in an hour to a class and a professor.
