examples used were quite nice but the method of explanation could have been better.

extremely unsatisfied. Although the content is great. The lack of details, the missing results in the training exercises and the extremely arrogant coments (like: "Make shure you know how to do this" - Well if I did, I wouldn´t enroll in a course), making it extremely dificult to keep the pace. The quality in preparation is very deficit, and the interest in teaching even worse.

The course was a concise overview of the key concepts in statics. The approach was no-fuss and yet detailed enough. Overall, I am happy with this course, but there definitely can be improvements.

However, the course could have used more example problems as home-work problems. Having enough worked out examples is a must to grasp any concept in Engineering or Physics. Fortunately, I studied this course with the help of Hibbeler's book on Statics, so there was no shortage of worked out examples. I didn't make use of the textbook suggested by the lecturer, though that too might have been sufficient. But it still would have been nice to have these examples worked into the weekly lectures and problem sets.

Also, I am not a great fan of the cool-off period of one week after trying the quiz once. This simply made me more hesitant to take the quiz for the fear of ruining my shot, and delayed my clearing the course. This was a lot of unnecessary pressure of the kind that make real-world courses in Universities such a chore.

I took the the Introduction to Engineering Mechanics by Dr Whiteman. I would like to give feedback that the Dr Whiteman is awesome, his way of teaching shows great subject knowledge. The practical examples with scaled models is superb and I could understand different support conditions with the help of his models. Hats off to Dr Whiteman who made understanding so practical which no professor here would teach students in India. Hope he takes several courses especially Civil Engineering, most importantly the Design of Reinforced Concrete Members in the future, which will help interested students around the world like me. The way he talks about beams, columns and structural members is giving us a lot of confidence. I would love to take Theory of Structures and RCC (Reinforced Cement Concrete) structural design courses from Dr. Whiteman/COURSERA. Thanks from my heart to Dr Whiteman of Georgia Tech.

Excellent course and I highly recommend it to people who are currently doing A-Levels - final year - and applying to universities. I know its very difficult to balance commitments with A-Levels studies and doing this online course but it will give you a better outlook in which type of engineering courses you want to pursue in university or if engineering is something for you at all - it will give you a good outlook. I also recommend it to people who want to sharpen their knowledge in engineering if they have not gone over the topic after a long period of time. Dr Whiteman is an excellent online instructor (unfortunately, I have not met him in real life).

I enjoyed and liked this course, even though I did not have some required previous knowledge like trigonometric functions and algebraic operations. I'm a bit sad because in the W3 and W4 exams I didn't get a 100% score, because of small details like forgetting to divide by 2 the product of b*h in the triangle area or walking a vector in the opposite direction. However, this course has encouraged me to continue learning and to be more careful with details. I look forward to the next course: "Applications in Engineering Mechanics". Thank you. Best and kindest regards.

A quite good course. As someone who graduated in mechanical engineering long time ago but has not seen mechanics since then I wanted to review the basic concepts and the course fulfills perfectly what is expected from it. Professeor Whiteman explains everything very well and the recommended book is very, very good and, quite important, free. I am quite satisfied and I intend to do the next courses taught by professor Whiteman at Coursera.

Learned the things I needed to learn. I easily understood the lessons and I was guided by the videos when I am answering my exams. Dr. Whiteman definitely did a good job explaining the lessons. I can see he is very knowledgeable of what he teaches and he is clear in delivering it to students. I do hope this message gets to him. Definitely worth my time and I will be able to apply my learnings in my field. That's all I can say. Thank you!

I learned a lot during the course. Thanks Dr, Wayne for the great course. One recommendation would be that sometimes Dr. Wayne would explain some new topic, assuming that student has background knowledge. It would be better if Dr. Whiteman would elaborate more on newly used techniques and explain in depth or at least mention a little bit about new technique/concept (for example integration, vector product, center of mass/force).

I am from Pakistan. I recently started this course. The best Course Outline, best techniques and methods i have ever seen with practical examples as well. Really appreciate Dr. Wayne Whiteman his ways, techniques. Its my dream (my God fulfill it) to complete my Master's in Structural Engineering outside Pakistan. I hope may God help me and fulfill my desire to come and study in Georgia Institute of Technology.

Dr. Wayne,

It was really a wonderful experience to attend your classes. I teach this subject for undergraduate students at Christ University, Bangalore and wanted to take up one myself so that i can understand how to define the learning outcomes. I could also learn some topics which are not part of our teaching curriculum. I am eager to take up more classes under your guidance.

An excellent course; it helped me to learn the most fundamental topics of Engineering Mechanics conceptually and with clarity.

One of the major things that I liked about the course was that Dr Wayne made the otherwise seemingly difficult topics very easy and simple to understand.

Questions (of lecture modules as well as quiz) were also very nice.

Thank you very much Dr. Wayne!

This is a great introduction to Engineering but make sure you know your physics (and some maths)

As someone who hasn't done physics and math for about ten years I was struggling and I spent many more hours studying and watching other video's on the internet to get the hang of the questions.

After things clicked for me I found the video's of this course easier to understand.

This was a really fun reinforcement for different topics that are of use to me in my day to day life, is also really fun in the way that the videos keep you engaged and the topics are illustrated nicely, only problems I had was on week one, too many mistakes happened and I wish they made a video with everything correct to avoid stoping the class to explain what was wong

The course was very nice. The professor's explanation was very clear and easy to understand. So I am very satified with this course. The only thing I see that can be improved is that the homework tasks in the pdf is difficult to find in the document and sometimes there is no answer and I could not check my answer is correct. But the rest of the things were very nice.

This course was amazing it was easy and very very informative, Like for a student who always though Engineering mechanics was tough after attending this course I actually can't believe that its this easy and like I was engrossed the way of delivering the content I absolutely loved that and I'm actually gonna learn more and attend few more courses

I would say, Dr Whiteman is the one of the best professor. He explains everything in very detailed manner, so there is no chance of confusion. Thank you so much professor for your hard work and your commitment for making this course. The pace of the course is perfect. i'm really glad that i found this course. Thanks to coursera and Dr Whiteman.

I am a mechanical engineer but lost the hold of basic concepts because I am not working in field of structural mechanics. I took this course to revisit and learn those concepts again. Not only I got a thorough revision of the underlying concepts, I also learned some new techniques. I thanks Prof Whiteman and Coursera for bringing this course.

Dear Professor,

I love the way you taught me since last month. Your way of teaching, using real life examples, helped me to better understand and solve the problems. Thank You for sharing your lecture in Coursera and making it available so that a distant student like me can take advantage. And THANK YOU one more time Professor.

I initially enrolled in this course with an intent to refresh my basics and as the course progressed further, I got a good understanding of the vectorial method of solving the problems of mechanics. Now I can able to follow both methods with ease. This course is more application in nature with examples of real-world problems.

I'd like to recommend this course to my fellow student who study aerospace engineering in South Korea. This course is full of interesting stuff and it's really helpful when you review what you've learned. I really enjoyed this course and I'd like to thanks Georgia Tech and Coursera for high quality online course like this.

I really can't describe how awesome this course is, Dr. Whiteman was always linking course content with real world examples, which was an amazing idea that helped me understand concepts deeply. I enjoyed every single lecture, now finally I have strong fundamentals about engineering mechanics. SPECIAL THANKS TO DR.WHITEMAN

Interesting course, great video lectures - brief and yet they include examples covering all aspects of the course topics. Online tutor participates actively in discussion forums and so does Dr Whiteman himself. Exciting and thought provoking quiz questions. You begin to feel like an Engineer/Problem Solver in action :-)

Thank you sir for the making this course. I had a lot of doubts before starting this course. My main problem area was centroids which you explained very beautifully. And the vector part of the course is also very good I came to know when to use cross product and dot product.

Once again thank you for making this course.
