It is very well structured and Dr Krishna Garikipati helps me understand the course in very simple manner. I would like to thank coursera community for making this course available.
Well worth the time if you wish to understand the mathematical origin of the FEM methods used in solving various physical situations such as heat/mass transfer and solid mechanics

I like this course it is useful because have theory and the application part.

excellent course , explains stuff right from the basics.
great job overall !!
I think this course is very good for the students who first learn the fem.

While quite mathematical in nature as opposed to a purely applied view of the method, Prof, Krishna Garikipati's teaching style and clear explanations make the material accessible to practicing engineers outside of academia. This is a great course to take for a strong introduction to the theory of FE method. The TA's explanation videos, while being helpful can sometimes be too verbose. This is a long course, and took me nearly 4 months to finish the videos. I had to go back and watch each of the videos at least 2 times over these 4 months, since some ideas are a bit mathematically dense. Upon second viewing, the ideas become clearer. Overall, a highly recommended course!

This is a good intro course which introduce the Finite Element Method step by step, which suited me perfectly since I hardly coded in c++ nor did FEM before.
Nevertheless, as a graduate student, the pace is very slow, and the outline and motivation unclear, which would likely have discouraged me if I did not review video in x2, and stuck to second week lectures and onward.
I would advise to introduce more outline and motivation at the beginning of the week lecture to keep students motivated.
Apart from that, I recommand the course !

The course is a nice and well structured from theoretical point of view introduction to Finite Element Methods. The computational part is a little marginal in the course, but is the main for the grading. If the course had a perfect division between theory and computational part it would've been perfect. The only problem is that in theory, one does the same kind of calculations over and over again, and it's boring after few times.
