“I liked that I got to do research and apply my knowledge from the past few years to solve a problem. Every day I had to reference my past classes/textbooks to solve problems."
"I had not been feeling confident in my engineering skills until this course. It has shown me that I will be able to approach a problem and logically think through it and determine what needs to be done to solve it. Also I believe I am better equipped to check the solution outcome for accuracy."
"This course taught me so much about the engineering field and gave me a sense of confidence in my ability to make critical design decisions.The poster presentation format for discussing the project gave the students and visitors time to focus on interesting key points of the project.”
“Really enjoyed this course. It was really well structured and really made me eager about joining the engineering workforce.”
“This was the best course of my entire curriculum!”
