Comments on the course

So IDS1940 in person classes are pretty fun and engaging, you spend most of the class presenting or doing group work. However, the homework and larger assignments are a nightmare. The Fusion 360 tutorials are completely outdated so you have to guess half the time where certain functions are and it gets real frustrating real quick. Arduino is a bit easier but still pretty hard. The way the course is set up is pretty slow paced considering you do like maybe 4 big projects the whole semester.

Course Content

You spend a large majority doing Fusion 360, Arduino and group projects that take multiple weeks. If you're an engineering major you'll probably like this class a lot more than your peers regarding HW but the presentations can be brutal.

Comments on the professor

I absolutely adore professor Pollard. She is so nice and loves to handout extra credit when deserved. There was a day I received 5 exc points just for showing up. She is a tough grader but if you follow the instructions to a tee it isn't nearly as bad. All of the HW is complete or incompletely so as long as you do the work (even if it is multiple weeks late) you'll get full credit.


Do the HW, go to class, and collaborate with your group members as much as possible.
