course comments :Bullshit course.. basically the course is supposed to be about learning about engineering as a discipline overall, and about the different schools of engineering at state. It ends up just being a bunch of busy work.

instructor comments :My section was taught by Peter Kilpatrick, head of the Chemical Engineering dept. Seemed like he had an idea of what he was supposed to be doing there and kinda ran with it. He's a bit of a prick... I just didn't like him. He gave the class a lot of misinformation, especially when it came to Freshman Engineering Design Day.

course comments :Necessary evil to remain an accredited university though. I would MUCH rather have this course restructured so first third is intro to NCSU, second third is intro to COE, last third is intro to major. I would have gotten a lot more out of it that way. What they did teach could be squeezed into an 8-hour one-day lecture and two handbooks.
class :Fall 2001 section 038

class comments :Of the list of topics that was presented, it did do as it intended, provide a very high-level introduction to engineering. Odds and Ends opportunities at the university were also mentioned for those interested.
instructor :
instructor rating :4 - Awesome
instructor comments :Dr. Bullard I have heard nothing but good things about from my ChemE friends. She kept the class highly interactive, so you knew the 2 hours you spent there every week had some merit to it. As far as material, did a nice job presenting it.

course comments :A class where you form groups of 3-5 people and choose, design, and sometimes build a project. Another rite of passage class to be an engineer.
class :Fall 2001 section 043
grade received :A
class rating :3 - Good
class comments :I got a small group that worked well toghther; another Nuke and a CS major.
There are horror stories that go with any other group project.
Our design was fatally flawed, but a few modifications would fix it. Som of the other Nuclear Thickness Gauges were better, some worse (alot worse), but ours was just right.
instructor :
instructor rating :4 - Awesome
instructor comments :Brian Bures was my Teacher. I did summer research under him before. Knowing the teacher helps. The SEL (e101 for student helper) was also a Nuclear Engineer and on officer in the ANS, a club i'm active in. Just a bunch of Nuke's... scary.

class comments :Class let out an hour early usually. Most of the semester was groups presenting information. Not bad. The book is only needed for the WebAssign test that's given half way through the year. That test was open book.

course comments :E101 is like the plague. Once a week is still too much. Boring everything, it's like intro to college. The projects suck too... Just pick the bottle rocket and minimize suffering, you barely have to do anything. The trebuchet is overrated. It too will drive you mad.

course comments :This class is useless. its like 2.5 hours long and all i due is screw around on my laptop b/c the class is so boring. students give rehash information from the engineering new student booklet and go over different engineering things. then the year wraps up w/ a freshman design project that you have to spend your own money to construct for like 40% of your grade. this class sucked and was a waste of my time the only reason i took it was b/c its required for matriculation into the engineering

class comments :read the above. yeah the class is an easy grade but still it wasted my time and is only 1 credit hour for a class that meets almost every week for 2.5 .hours. BTW if you miss class more then once your grade falls half a step. fuck attendence policies. also if you like having hot girls in your class don't take this class. its a giant dork fest

class rating :2 - Average
class comments :8:00 am class, so most of the time I was either sleeping or surfing the internet. Class got out early every week. Freshman Design Day sounded like fun, but all our group did was stand by our table for 2 and half hours doing nothing.
instructor :Anistratov
instructor rating :3 - Good
instructor comments :Anistratov was a Russian guy who really didn't give a crap about anything. The T/A did most of the work. But, when a group was presenting he would ask a ton of questions. He would always leave early; if he was done teaching and we were doing busy work, he would just leave.
