    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is incredibly fun and teaches a lot solely through projects and group work. It is a big departure from the way many engineering courses are taught and is a welcome change.

    Course highlights:

    Each of the projects is fun in its own way, but the last project, if it works out as intended, is incredibly rewarding and fun.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work on projects as far in advance as possible and work on your own or with whoever is available whenever you can

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    EGR 121 is a great course for preparing students how to work with their peers to accomplish tasks and how to think creatively in order to solve various problems.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course, I worked with various groups of my fellow students and learned how to best contribute to each project and utilize my strengths. This class builds skills in communication and planning while also requiring students to use various tools and equipment safely with sufficient training. Seeing our creation's and projects work successfully (though often not perfectly) was a great experience.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For all projects in this course, make sure not to wait until the last minute to finish both write-ups and building or testing your designs. Also, make sure to test things very extensively before presentation days!
