Dr. Whiteman is a very good teacher, he makes the complicated physics easy to understand and relate it with real life examples and equipment, which makes the class very interesting. Highly recommended as a fundamental introduction course for those who are interested in mechanical engineering!

I have taken all the mechanics courses from Dr. Whiteman and enjoyed each one. They were a great to recap on from my University modules.

Dr. Whiteman explains the material very well. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent course. Prof Whiteman provides worked examples that help with learning and the quiz problems. His courses provide a good background for engineering.

I highly recommend the series of Mechanical Engineering courses offered by Dr. Whiteman. The courses are self contained if taken in order, and all the theorems given are developed in the class, no formulas are thrown at you, so you can understand where the formulas come from and how to apply them. There are well developed and relevant examples in the lessons, often taken from real life engineering problems. And Dr. Whiteman does an excellent job in presentation, often with live demonstrations so you can get a better feel of the explanations. The courses provide a solid introduction to mechanical engineering, and even if you have taken some ME, these are a good review. What is presented in the courses are sufficient to understand most engineering designs. I have used what I learned here to study further engineering structures, for example, I am interested in the construction of Renaissance cathedrals, and applied what I learned to better understanding how they were built.

Dr. Wayne Whiteman,

The course "Mechanics of Materials II: Thin-Walled Pressure Vessels and Torsion:" was again a very nice refresher course. I appreciate your video lectures.

Please keep these types of classes going!

Really good lectures. Loved taking it. It was a good complement to my graduation, since I did not got it so well the first time. My only complaint is that the question on the forum are never (or it take to much time) answered.
