Before you take Engineering 98, you need to have honest expectations about the class. He will share with you about engineering careers, advantages of getting an engineering degree, and some practical tips about engineering in industry. It is not his goal to be your academic adviser and walk you through the different majors and help you decide between them. The class grading is simple: go to class, work on his one project, you will get as much out of it as you put in. So if you are curious about engineering careers in general, good class; if you already feel like you know that stuff or dont need it right now, not the class for you.

I came into this class an undeclared engineering major, and was told it would help me decide what to choose. It did not help much, sadly, but this class was still fairly interesting. Just one group project that takes like half an hour per week. His lectures aren't really eventful, but this guy has had a cool career. Just show up and you'll be fine. Oh, and unless you want to waste like 15 bucks, don't buy the book. I didn't open it.

I was really disappointed with this class. I was told it would help Undeclared engineers choose a major, but it didn't do that at all. Most of the time, he was just talking about what he thought we should know to have a successful engineering career, but that's the kind of stuff that you have to learn on your own. The guest lecturers were sometimes interesting, but not always. Unfortunately, he took attendance as part of the grading, so you had to go most of the time. Also, there was more work than necessary for a class like that.
So I'd only suggest this class if you have to take it. Oh, and don't waste your money on the textbook.
