Comment: I'm an engineering student. Ironically, this was the best class I've taken that I felt like I've become a better engineer. I always 'taught' that engineering design is an iterative process and I took a number of project classes, but this was the only class that you really need to go back and forth between the design and the engineering requirements until you reach a happy balance. Even though most of the concepts taught in the class were something I already knew, I still felt like I learned so much.

Comment: lectures are engaging but move very slow... assignments and exams are very easy... the labs are more or less busy work... the projects are fun but very time consuming; they seem to be were most of the practical learning comes from.... this course should be an easy A if you did well in the statics portion of a physics course and enjoy the subject

Comment: Awesome professor. Very laid-back and easy to talk to in office hours. Weekly problem sets are difficult... more so than the exams. Lab projects take forever to do
