Comment: Prof. Carey has a good overview over alternate energy sources. Lectures are usually well planned, and the quizzes, assignments, and final exams are heavily reliant on the equations written down during lecture. This class is mainly project based, so a good understanding of MATLAB or another programming language is recommended.

Comment: I actually took this in the summer of 2013 with another lecturer, Dr. Rich. For a lecturer, he's alright. He owns his own company that deals with problems concerning thermodynamics such as the causes of fires. So it was pretty interesting to learn about how these topics relate to situations encountered in industry. He was a bit unorganized at times and I felt that some of his lectures were winged, but nevertheless, he still did a pretty good job. I learned quite a lot. HW was ungraded. There were 8 quizzes and one final exam. A lot of material was covered so that's why it was a 10 week course.

Comment: Great teacher, ties in a lot of real world situations and comes to class very well prepared. Exams are not too bad because they are open book, but don't rely on that too much. Homework usually only consists of 4 problems, but make sure you do them carefully.

Comment: ME40 has a steep learning curve in the beginning, then starts to really make sense. The problem sets were usually 4-5 problems long and took only an hour or two to complete. The exams were very similar to old exams and problems.

Comment: Explains the topic very well and has good real world connections with the material. Very interested in the topic and he absolutely loves gas cycles, so be sure to study those for the midterms/final. Tests weren't bad, homework is good prep.
