TOP REVIEWS FROM MATERIALS SCIENCE: 10 THINGS EVERY ENGINEER SHOULD KNOW
I watched all of the professor's videos and it was truly informative. As a Chemical Engineering student, I learned a lot about the different properties and structures involved in various materials.
It was a very good short course. Was very useful and informative. The videos were very creatively made. The shorter duration of each videos was an added plus to get the solid attention of the viewers
A special thankd to Mr.James Shackelford, who guided me throughout this course journey. The way he explain all material science topic is fablous. I enjoyed this course and once again i thank you sir
The course goes through all of the required topics within material science and gives proper information.
Professor's explanation and his description makes it easy to understand.
