According to other learners, here's what you need to know

mechanical engineer in 35 reviews

I am a Mechanical Engineer and like most of them engineers, I had very weak concepts of basics of Mechanical Engineering.

I would highly recommend Dr. Whiteman's online courses to everyone who is interested in pursuing mechanical engineering as his/her profession.

This class presented very clear formatting of simple, but important ideas that every mechanical engineer should be aware of, with great step by step instructions to teach us.

I was quite rusty when i came back to school for my graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering.

I would recommend this course for anyone interested in Mechanical Engineering.

It includes the main basics of mechanical engineering with practical modules which help for more understanding with record for lectures materials for better reference.

This course was very understandable at the same time challenging, I have taken a few of the Mechanical engineering series but definitely I want to finish the complete series.

engineering mechanics in 31 reviews

I have also completed Applications in Engineering Mechanics and had a great deal of fun with that course as well.

If you get yourself a copy of the recommended text - Engineering Mechanics by W.W. King and D.J.

It was as if a revision and a strengthening course for people that already understand the material Great course that helps one get familiar with the lingo and the methods of engineering mechanics.

I was struggling in my Engineering mechanics class, I started taking this course and it's Sooooo much easier to understand.

I would recommend this course for people who want to learn basics of engineering mechanics.

It’s an excellent course to start learning about engineering mechanics; the examples given and exercises help reinforce the theory given during the course.

All courses on Coursera by Dr. Whiteman are perfect if you want to get your basics in Engineering Mechanics clear.

real world in 12 reviews

Dr. Wayne is an outstanding teacher and the course covers the whole basis for an Engineer to solve real world problems.

The course addresses the modeling and analysis of static equilibrium problems with an emphasis on real world engineering applications and problem solving.

Good real world examples.

I have been studying calculus and was bored with math problems that do not have real world application.

You'll learn a lot and you'll be totally happy if you can apply the knowledge from the course in the real world.

i learnt in this course how to apply statics in the real world problems.

The course is a very real world focused, but can be even more.

highly recommend in 12 reviews

It was a great experience to do this course with Dr. Wayne E. Whiteman ( from Georgia Institute of Technology-a great institute too), I highly recommend these types of courses, at least you summarize the important ideas, and get familiar with e-learning.

It's a very useful learning tool, i also highly recommended it to a couple of my buddies.

Thank you I highly recommend this course for those who want to form a solid background about mechanics.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and highly recommend it.

Highly recommend.

Highly recommend to anyone interested in mechanics to refresh or consolidate concepts.

would highly recommend it Application based teaching.
