ERTH1501 – Earth Processes & Geological Materials for Engineers 81.7

Really fun (and interesting) course taken mostly by engineers. Fairly easy to get full marks for practical attendance and the pracbook. Final exam just reuses questions from previous year, so study them during SWOTVAC and you'll go great.
Sue and Guil were great lecturers, Guil more-so. Emma was new (and you could tell).
The virtual field trip was much harder than everyone expected.
