Introduction to Programming with MATLAB

Written 2 years ago
This course is the epitome of a perfect online course; everything from the lesson plan, lesson formats, video formats, homework formats and grading. This course does establish you with the basic programming concepts you'll need as a programmer as well as the programming functionality of MATLAB. The professors and assistants of this course definitely know the material, but also know how to teach, as well as how to present the materials. The homework problems tend to be non-simplistic and personally I have found that in order to truly learn anything proficiently you have to challenge yourself.

Also, I truly would like to thank Vanderbilt University, especially for their work in developing this type of online/video learning method. Additionally, COURSERA to me is a revolutionary idea realized and i thank its founders immensely.

Introduction to Power Electronics

Written 9 months ago
This is an excellent course and teaches the latest methods for circuit analysis of power converter circuits. However, the material is difficult in that it would greatly help if the student had some pre-exposure to Switch-mode Power Supply design. The professor is clear and concise but that doesn't make the material easy. You must put effort into this class and the results will be very worth the effort.
