Introduction

SE Reflection

The Cohort

Courses

Course Reflections

CS138 (Introduction to Data Abstraction and Implementation)

ECE106 (Electricity and Magnetism)

ECE124 (Digital Circuits and Systems)

No offence to electrical engineers intended.

ECE140 (Linear Circuits)

In case you were wondering, this is an operational amplifier. We learned about it in this course :P

MATH119 (Calculus 2 for Engineering)

It’s so cute. Like. So cute.

Takeaways for this Term

🙃 Take-home exams expected to take 2–2.5 hours will rarely (if ever) take you 2–2.5 hours.

📖 Study, even when you think you don’t need to.

Narrator: It was bad.

💡 ECE students are champions

💖 Find things that give you joy.
