Comment:
This man is a master of his subject. You will learn to be a system solver (not a problem solver) and understand what complex systems are and to use different lenses to analyze them. No required textbook, but expect to read ALOT of pdf files relating to topic. If you are struggling, he will zoom meet with you as he cares. 6 hours study a day A

Comment:
Pre-recorded lecture modules that aren't edited, could really use a public speaking course (lots of filler words (uh, so, um), audibly sucks his teeth), refers to himself in the third person. Expects a huge time investment every week. Obviously knows his stuff, but miserable in a distance learning environment.

A LOT of work and prep. Weekly readings and video lectures to watch, as well as a graded assignment, on top of a case study "midterm" and course project "final". He grades fairly in my opinion, but I also put a lot of effort into the course. Nice guy, knowledgeable and passionate about systems. Gives help if needed. An A is possible.

This course made me realize life is a "System" and as all systems, it has its own purpose. This course simplified the world for me and led me to focus on the solutions. I recommend this course not only to Engineering students but to everyone. It may require a lot of preparation but that's the only way to learn. Enlightening course, two thumbs up!

Comment:
For a 3 credit hour course the expected workload is borderline ridiculous, even for a graduate course. No textbook and readings are largely busy work providing little clarification or insight on lectures. Great topic but incredibly disappointing course - averaged 25 hours per week on the course and can't say I'm that much more knowledgeable.

Comment:
Challenging course due to the heavy workload. Grading was generous as I suspect everyone got a B who turned in all of their assignments on time and followed his instructions. Content was interesting but I did not care for the video lectures. Assignments were long for this department but plenty of guidance was provided.

Comment:
An excellent Professor, one of the best. He has obviously put a lot of work into this course, which is really a rigorous exercise in critical thinking. Only complaint is he is very late with grading. I think half of my assignments went ungraded, and never got any feedback on the final project (only a letter grade)

Comment:
Considerable amount of reading and viewing of taped modules. Students must write reviews of each reading and each taped modules even when the material is repetitive. I was disappointed at not getting more "hands on" systems analysis class instead of more theory.

Comment:
VERY tough & demanding course. Professor is very nice & experienced w/lots of valuable material. No book but LOTS of reading. Out-of-class modules (video-taped lecture) make it more like a 4-5 cr/hr class. No tests but case studies & project are VERY hard. Spend most of my energy worrying about meeting his high expectations rather than learning.
