[MSAE E4101] Structural Analysis of Mateials

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

To save you time, I will say this in the first line - DONT TAKE HER CLASS! For me, the 2 reasons you want to take any course are:

1. You learn something.
2. It helps your grade.

In her course, 1 wont happen. Her teaching is extremely disorganized. She wastes 20 minutes ( I am not exaggerating) in every class talking about the weather, her student's national cultures and such things. She teaches out of old, incomplete notes. She tried to teach us lattice defects with notes, that had no diagrams.

Also, if you are uncomfortable holding the hands of strangers and dancing in front of the class - this course is not for you. To explain wave motion, symmetry, etc. this is what she will make you do with your classmates.

Grading: You think you are doing very well in the class, and you will get a C. I wont go into details here, because that will surely reveal who I am. But if grades are important to you - you are taking a gamble by choosing her class.

Workload:

Workload is very light. Late submission of HWs is tolerated.
