Introduction to Water Resources Engineering
Winter 2020 - The best professor I have had here at UCLA. Genuinely cares about her students and their learning. It is obvious she has put time into carefully planning her coursework and takes student feedback very seriously. Encourages students to go to office hours. One of the few professors where I do not feel like teaching comes second after research. She has great energy and makes the class feel excited about the course material. Sometimes can be unclear, but if you ask for clarification she is more than willing to put time into clearing it up for you and others in the class. Have taken another class with her this quarter and would love to take another.
This guy is great! His number one priority is making the students LEARN the material. He doesn't care about anything else but his students learning something from his class. His midterm was a little tricky but no worries, he lets you do CORRECTIONS after he hands them back! isn't that nice! The project is more of a trial and error type of thing. He gives you a distribution system and it is up to us to configure something to make it work. And you also have to do a final report for the project. It is not as bad as 121 or 141. So i urge you to take this class! You won't regret it!
Really good professor. He is incredibly fair and will NOT ask you random questions on exams. Margulis is very organized and he gives very thorough notes so you will always know exactly what to study. How well you do is simply a matter of how much time you're willing to put into studying. The homework can get lengthy at times, but if you can do it on your own, you're pretty much set. Every homework has some matlab in it (and homework is worth a LOT), so either know it well, or find a classmate that does. Margulis is a great guy, and is very patient and soft-spoken. Take advantage of his office hours because he's probably one of the nicest professors we have at UCLA. I took CEE 150 with him as well, and all of the comments above also apply. I recommend you take 150 if you're interested at all in water resources because you learn a lot of interesting things that you may not get from your general required classes.
