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!
Spring 2018 - This is a capstone course so it will be unlike the more technical classes you have taken in the past. If you have taken 151 then there will be very little new concepts in this class, just applications and design principles. You'll essentially spend the first half of the class working on a group presentation that incorporates applied design and you'll spend the second half of the class developing a notebook of calculations and simulation results which are basically outlined by Professor Kendall during class. Kendall is very nice and approachable but isn't 100% concrete with expectations for the final notebook; you may be taken aback by how much freedom you have in this class. Generally the discussions for this class are useful because the TA will probably be more explicit about what to do. Make sure to work alongside peers in this class so you know what's going on because it may be easy to get lost. Hypothetically, if you attend class and discussion you probably won't have any outside work for this course, but it's tempting to get lazy in this class since there are no pressing deadlines or exams to study for. A more detailed look at the subject matter would've been nice.
