This is a time-consuming class. It was taught by Simonetti and Sam (Srivastava), but is clearly led by Simonetti. He's a tough grader! Very detail-oriented and will literally "grill" students on past material they should know. But in all honesty, you can tell he's a practiced, experienced engineer who is pushing you to really try.

Organization-wise, for COVID, there are 4 labs where you will be provided with data excel sheets from the TA. You will also be provided with a word-document having you roleplay some scenario that involves the data ("you are an engineer hired to perform an analysis of a distillation column..."). I believe the difficulty of the course stems from its open-endedness. You have the lab manual from previous years, the word doc, and an excel sheet. With those three files, you are to generate a very professional, specific, focused, high-quality report to the best of your ability. Overall, it's a lot like the last ChemE lab, but with more focus on report quality. I honestly felt like the workload is way more, however, since we have way more time to work (there's rarely lectures and lab is not really mandatory...) but I still felt MORE stressed for this class--this might likely be due to the material, which is very 101C and 103 oriented, both of which I'm fairly shaky in.

I ultimately have little complaints with the class. Our group absolutely could have done better with report-writing and time management, and I did feel heavily stressed as the report deadline approached (nothing beats a cold beer after 5pm on those Friday deadlines). Still, we did well enough each time! The class is stress-heavy and workload-heavy, but if you stick it through, you'll find your grade is just fine. This is coming from what I believe was an average group. My biggest piece of advice is to have your graded reports open as you construct your later reports--make sure you don't make any mistake you've made before.
