I took a similar class at my local community college about 10 years ago. We
didn't do a class project, but I was only auditing the class and skipped the
TIg section at the end and did my own project instead. This was the
instructor's recommendation, figuring I was unlikely to be buying my own TIg
welder. That may have been a mistake, since Tig prices have since come down,
but with his help I made a custom tow bar for my Sunbeam Alpine.  That is a
nice thing to have, but with hindsight I might have been better off using the
time to practice sheet metal welding. The class focused 100% on work with
thicker steel and we never worked with sheet metal.  Working on it with the
instructor probably would have been a good idea.
