Great course. But I was also hoping to get an in-depth analytical understanding of the second law of thermodynamics and the zeroth law as well. But I really enjoyed it and definitely learned a lot.
Courses from the University of Michigan are always awesome. Hats off to Margaret Wooldridge, mam. Thank you so much, Coursera and the University of Michigan for making this outstanding experience.

A pretty good "beginner" course for the people who are completely new for the subjects (apart from a few basic understanding from their high school classes of physics/chemistry). The pace and explanation are pretty fit for people to receive a better "absorption" rate for knowledge, so to speak. The examples in videos are quite good too, with enough working to guide people through the problems, not to mention the discussion videos where large-scale application of thermodynamics is used.
However, it is not "really enough" for someone who wants more in-depth training to revise for the thermodynamics at any university.

The course is extremely helpful if you already have some prior knowledge in thermodynamics. It helps you to work on your prior knowledge with in between questions and the quizzes after every week help you to assess yourself on how far have you come across the topics covered. the only thing you need to do is read the topic carefully and need some help with the numericals with other practice from some books.

Great course and a very friendly professor :) However there were some mistakes here and there, which are annoying because you do not expect a professor to make such mistakes. Furthermore there could be more up to date, data. Especially data on energy use etc should not be from the year 2004 if we are in 2017. Overall though a biiiiiig thank you!

Overall good and informative course, for those who never get in touch of thermodynamics. I found it little hard since my field is computer science, but in this course I manage to get basic idea of thermodynamics. I can say that I see the world little different now and have explanation of some of the events round us.

Decent course. Goes into enough detail to give a nice broad view of thermodynamics overall, but not too much detail that it becomes boring (although there are some cumbersome moments in the course). I would recommend this course if you want to learn more about this field and are aspiring to study/work in it.

Very good lectures. Clear explanations. I really liked the overview of the current state of energy sources and renewables ones in the world. The only drawback is that I think it should be more practical examples which will clearly show the principles of thermodynamics. Anyway, great work!

This is a very interesting and rewarding course. It would help if the format was broken up a bit more. Perhaps with some video of power plants, turbines, etc. I enjoyed the "excursions" to see the jet engine and internal combustion engine. More like that would liven the material up a bit.

Excellent overview of the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics. I gained insight into how power is generated across the world and became more fluent in working with concepts such as work, enthalpy, entropy, total internal energy, specific heat, and others.

it was really good course i learned lots of stuff during this course . high qualified teacher tough us lost of key knowledge of this particular topic. i personally enjoy to have this course and i took lots of positive from this course
By JOHN R•
A useful course for anyone in chemical engineering. I enjoyed the material. Its well structured. Would be nice if Professor Wooldridge gave more example problems.
Course is great and very useful for thorough understanding of Thermodynamics. But Exergy and Second law efficiency was not discussed. It should also be included
By Ravikumar T•
I strongly recommend this course who wanted to learn basics of thermodynamics. Good understandings of subject and author was explained the concept very well.
By ATHARVA P•
Some terms like entropy and enthalpy could have been explained in detail . Use of the real life problem was one of the best aspect of this course. Loved it.

I really enjoyed learning thermodynamics in online classes and way comfortable to understand the concepts.. thanks a lot
By Oscar C•
Very good for an introductory course, clear explanations and exercises. looking forward for more courses in medium level
By Rodrigo L R•
Nice, but should have explored more the 1st and 2nd laws, and a bit more of pictures and videos of real components.
By Sahil K•
After having thermodynamics course two times in academics, this one was very interesting to take and complete.
By Dipak S M•
This course is best for clearing your Doubts and clear your basics concepts about the Thermodynamics subject.
By Soroush S•
helpful course Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach book by Cengel is good for study beside this course
By Marcus E•
With minor corrections to the course content and the platform, this review would be upgraded to five star.
By Mahmoud A•
very good introductory course but it's quite light, a denser curriculum would have made it an easy 5-star
By Sojjwala P•
the assignments are simply superb which enhanced my subject grip. thankyou coursera! will be doing more
By Hasan F•
While the overall course content was really good, the videos were a little longer than necessary.
