Help us try and figure out just how hard ECE courses are at UT Austin 🤘


This is a system that works using pairwise comparisons and ELO. In the background every vote affects the overall ELO of the course using the Glicko2 algorithm. You can read more about it here. With every vote, we become a little more sure of the subjective difficulty of these courses. An ELO system is better than a simple rating since individual's scales can drastically differ.

If you can't compare the two classes for whatever reason just refresh the page it will spit out 2 new ones.

EE362S - Development of Solar-Powered Vehicle

Analysis, design, and construction of a solar-powered car for national competitions involving other universities. Study of electrical, mechanical, and aerodynamic systems.

M408D - SEQUENCES, SERIES, AND MULTIVARIABLE CALCULUS

M408D is our standard first-year calculus sequence. It is directed at students in the natural and social sciences and at engineering students. The emphasis in this course is on problem solving, not on the presentation of theoretical considerations. While the course necessarily includes some discussion of theoretical notions, it s primary objective is not the production of theorem-provers. M408D contains a treatment of infinite series, and an introduction to vectors and vector calculus in 2-space and 3-space, including parametric equations, partial derivatives, gradients and multiple integrals.
