I have already mentioned in my previous posts that this semester is more project based than any semester before. What is great in all of this is that some projects are group projects. I think that group projects are very useful, because in the future, once we get to the industry we will have to work with a lot of other engineers and make the right decisions based on discussions. During group project process there were some arguments and difficulties over whose answer was right and whose solution made more sense, but we always managed to come to a consensus which is what matters. The way these projects are different from my previous ones is that it is much more like real life engineering and statistics are all taken from real experiments. Consequently, while working on the projects I feel like I am solving something challenging and important.
Also, in the process of doing all these projects we get to learn new software like Simulink, LabVIEW, SolidWorks etc. so it all leads to acquiring more knowledge and experience with this software so that we can apply it in our future jobs. I also get to find out some interesting facts like Simulink and LabVIEW are pretty much interchangeable programs however they can both be used better in certain situations.
