Spring 2020 - Professor Lorenzelli is nice and professional. He provides well written (as in organization but maybe not in handwriting) notes. He would try his best to clarify things in class, and he can be easily accessed outside of class. Perhaps more importantly, he is a very kind human being, that he would try to accommodate everybody's needs and you could always talk to him if you need anything special (ddl extensions and etc).
MY FAVORITE PROFESSOR OF ALL TIME. He is the BEST. He is such a nice person and he is fun. He was the first professor who actually made me think that EE is a very interesting subject to learn and studying EE can be really fun. Midterm was easy but the final made me think but wasn't bad at all because I studied. I went to all the lectures for the first time in my four years of UCLA. I am so glad that I took his class before graduating. I see someone wrote about him mumbling but come on, if you can't understand well, you were probably sitting in the back and not paying attention. I was at the front seat all the time and I found nothing wrong in his lecture skills. Someone mentioned about mistake too. He did make some mistakes in lectures but they weren't even crucial mistakes and he caught his mistakes all the time and fixed them too. Anyways, I hope I took 102 with him, then my UCLA life would have been changed because I had terrible and arrogant 102 professor who basically made me lose interest in EE. He truly cares about students learning materials. He was very eager to help students if they didn't understand something. Grazie Professor Lorenzelli!
Spring 2021 - Do not take this Professor at any cost. Nobody could follow anything he's doing and when it came to exam time I was extremely under prepared. the HW is not helpful and the lecture notes are a mess, the TA discussion notes are somehow worse. He doesn't post solutions for his exams so you won't have the option to review what you did wrong on the midterm while preparing for the final. I alway fall asleep during his lectures, yes they are that boring and it's all theory. There is an extra credit project that im unsure as to how much its worth but that too doesn't depend on your knowledge from this class but rather your knowledge on Python and machine learning.
Fall 2017 - Very interesting class if you are into linear algebra and MATLAB, that was the cool part. It's also a pain in the ass, homework took me anywhere from 5 to 15 hours to complete each time. Lectures are hard to keep up with, because the professor mumbles and often seems uninterested. For example about seeming uninterested, on the first day of class he suggested that if you are genuinely interested in the subject that you should drop out of the class and take it with the other prof named Vandenberghe. I think he is sort of overrated on this website, not sure how. Anticipating I will get a B, not sure how the curve for tests goes.
