Undergraduate Program

I do not keep much stuffs from the undergraduate program so I cannot describe it well.

AE 223 - Statics

(Description) This is one of the most fundamental engineering class. Things will get 100 time tougher in upper classes. If you don't understand the materials in the class, you should change your major to something else, like, business. The materials covered in this class are, basic matrix operations, force, moment,

AE 227 - Engineering Digital Computing

AE 324 - Fundamental of Atmospheric Flight

Learns very basic idea of flight. If you are in AE major, you must take this class. This class is very interesting and helps you prepared in the field of study. Since I am a pilot, the knowledge here is very important too. The instructor, Dr. Rohksaz is also a great person to learn from.

AE 333 - Mechanics of Materials

MATH 243Q - Calculus II

(Description) Some says this is harder than Calc III, and I agree. I suffered a lot from Dr. Wang, who hates to see students getting 100%. In fact, there is no known student who got 100% in all of the exams yet. (And he died before someone ever done it.) The other instructor, Dr. Zin was easier.

ICT is Instructor Candidate Test and required for people who wants to be an instructor. WSI test is to become certified. This will take up whole semester, but you can have this one done in one week if you take it from ACAS offered by the American Red Cross in June-July every year but will be VERY tough. You will

PE 750V - Lifeguarding

(Description) Students in this class will get trained to become an American Red Cross certified lifeguard. This class is the beginning of how I started to earn money. When I took this class, requirements are tougher than current one. I did not know how to swim sidestroke so I had to take a private lessons to learn how. Sucks to be a Japanese. I also had a hard time

SOC 316 - The American Male

(Description) Another class taught by Dr. Ron Matson. Learns about traditional American Male. This is more detailed so you will have to understand what is the typical American Male. Just let you know the definition of the male in Japanese will not work so I felt some cultural gap.
