What's the easiest engineering elective?


MEAM101 is pretty fun! I would say it is easy, but does require some time. It's also very easy to get a good grade.

I would consider NETS213! The assignments are not particularly hard (mostly using Amazon Mechanical Turk and some easy Python), I haven't been to class since week 1, grading is easy, and you get some free late days. All in all I would say it's like 1-2 hours of work a week.

Here is a list of the "30 easiest and hardest classes at Penn": https://projects.thedp.com/2016/04/PCR/article/thirty-easiest-hardest-classes.html  

If you are looking to take electives that satisfy engineering requirements but are not in SEAS, I've heard ANTH238 is an interesting and easy class (counts for SS breadth).
