    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is good challenging class that trains you to thing structurally in order to figure out applicable math problems.

    Course highlights:

    The active lectures were the highlight of this cource and learned the dynamics of heat engines, heaters, air conditionres,etc

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to maximize your learning potential, make sure you visit your teacher's office hours for more assistance.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is not only a great introduction to real life scenarios we engineers will come across (like a turbine/compressor engine), but it also clarified some fundamental concepts that I'd mostly just memorized in my CHEE 201 class (y'know, THAT class everyone in which everyone who passed fainted of relief). Energy comes in form of work and heat in the systems we'll deal with- and that was awesome to finally understand.

    Course highlights:

    Practice, reading, and messing around with units were the things I, um, most enjoyed. The textbook is a godsend in that it explains EVERYTHING, and I loved that Dr. McIntyre went to the bare bones of the course and just explained a lot with formulas and pictures instead of scroll-length PowerPoint paragraphs. I know how to avoid exploding stuff like heat exchangers now, and I also designed a gym, which was nice.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book, do the problems in the book, and understand what you're doing in the mountain of homework the professor will give you instead of just looking it up in the solutions manual. If that's done, the tests will not be shocking.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was more of an interactive class. The lecturer gave assignments regularly to ensure the students understood what was being taught. Also there was a lot of collaborative learning involving group works which aided in understanding the subject

    Course highlights:

    My mathematical skills improved by taking this course. I learned to always be proactive in studying the teachers materials before class and to always read wide

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To take it as early as possible especially if you in considering a higher degree in chemical engineering
