Why you’re going to love my class
In our Senior Design class, you’ll produce a robot that can be entered into the Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition, which receives entries from schools all over the world. When people come back 5, 10, 15 years after graduating, the course they invariably talk about is this one. It’s a lot of work. But it’s work that you’ll love doing.
Great things in store after UDM
When you graduate, you will be in a fantastic position. You’ll be able to choose where you want to work. For one thing, you’ve already worked a full year in industry in a co-op program. You’ll know what it’s like to work in industry, and you’ll have a tremendous advantage over other people just coming out of school.
“We want great things for you” means
If I see on a quiz you’re not doing well, I don’t just let it go and say, “Well, see how you do on the next one.”  I ask you about it. We find out what’s going on. The main goal is to have you learn the material and be successful while you’re here.
You might like to know that
I went to UDM myself before going on to do graduate work at MIT.
