Others may find this course of much greater value. I do know quite a bit about 5G, but wanted to see what the course was about. So, if you are interested in a 50,000 foot overview of 5G, this course is for you.

The other issue I have is that this course is a big advertisement for the Qualcomm academy. I am priviledged to have been offered a Coursera subscription through an employer program. I would not be pleased if I had to pay for a certificate to hear about how what Qualcomm is doing in the realm of 5G.

I did learn some things about industrial IoT. Being that I am a technology instructor, this course allowed me to consider ways in which I can be a better presenter of the 5G System. Hopefully, there will be more in-depth courses available on the 5G System in the future. This is a good start.

As mentioned it is at beginners level but not really until you have done 6 semesters in engineering background.

The course content was comprehensive and informative, and I particularly appreciated the focus on the technologies that make 5G possible, including mmWave, Massive MIMO, and RAN. The course also provided me with a clear understanding of how companies can take advantage of 5G Private Networks and Industrial IoT to transform the way they operate on a daily basis.

The materials were well-organized and easy to follow, and I found the quizzes and assignments to be challenging and thought-provoking. The course also gave me a solid foundation in the standards and protocols that govern 5G networks.

Also, 5G technology is transforming the way businesses operate in the 2020s. With faster speeds, lower latency, and greater capacity, 5G is set to revolutionize industries such as healthcare, transportation, manufacturing, and many more. If you're interested in learning how this next-generation wireless technology is changing the business landscape, then look no further than this comprehensive course. thank you!!

5G 101 course in reasonably understandble language with good analogies examples!

Itgave the great insight about 5G. As a newbie engineer could relate a lot of the theoretical materials that I learned in the university with practical use cases in 5G world. However, the last module about security was too high level and without much technical stuff.

Thanks Qualcomm and Coursera for providing this great course!

The course content is too shallow and didn't give us the technical details that we need at our jobs as RF engineers. I know that this course for beginners but it should goes from zero to hero or at least contains valuable information that can be classified as RF engineering details not just the concepts names. To be honest this isn't acceptable as I was severely mislead by the course outline at the very beginning of the course since it seemed very strong outline elements but it turns out to be an empty outline with no real information added to me.

The best highlights from the course I wanted to share: 1. Nakul's delivery, 2. Content design, 3. Q&A with Hsin-I, 4. The analogy of roads & transport for wireless understanding, 5. Weeks 5 & 6 are a little less than my expectation but that's okay, and 6. Finally, the Qualcomm additional links and its history in the wireless domain motivated me.

I am thankful for the 5G Course. It did solve me connect the dots across the whole stream and now I am able to choose my project, thesis (in my university studies) according to my interests as I got a gist of the whole.

Very well-designed course that is easy to understand, takes you gradually up the technical and application stack, taught through easily relatable examples. Nakul has really made it easy to understand and retain complex tech into our memories. Hsin-I Hsu has coordinated the course, key takeaways and Q&A sessions very well.

One of the best 5G fundamental course i have enrolled for. Nakul is a excellent teacher and the way he compares 5G to normal real life cases is so easy for us students to grasp and understand. I wish coursera will add more courses related to 5G/4G like this one. Overall outstanding course and mentor.
