Comment:
Very hard class. She wants everything to be proven from first principles (from the ground up) which means you have to really know the material. Extremely caring and values education. Wants to see her students do well and move on to a four year school. Gets concerned if you miss a single day and makes sure someone in class gets in touch with you.

Dr. Lutz is the best professor I have ever had. She genuinely cares about her students and is dedicated to their success. Her classes are difficult, but they teach you how to be meticulous and think critically. If you take her classes and put in the work, you will be prepared for university courses and a career in a STEM field.

Comment:
Dr. Lutz's classes are probably one of the best primers for the workload required at 4 year universities. She has very high expectations for her students, but if you put in effort in her class, she will become one of your biggest supporters. She is extremely passionate about her student's success, and her history of successful students shows this.

Dr. Lutz is one of the best instructors I've ever had. She is tough, and you have to put in the effort, but she is always willing to help if you have questions. The engineering program helps you learn to approach problems in ways that allow for them to be broken down into more solvable chunks.

Best instructor at Solano and perhaps the best professor youll ever have. High quality, passionate lectures and a very intimate class. Deeply cares about all of her students. Shell spend hours with you outside of class to help you find internships and plan your academic future. Dont pass this opportunity up. Youll never find another Dr. Lutz.

My advice: Criticism is not a personal attack. It is a demand for you to raise the standards you've set for yourself. She demands excellence, but is looking for growth and potential. Most people will never encounter another person more interested in helping others better themselves. Be sure to communicate with her and your classmates.

Dr. Lutz was the best professor I think I will ever have. She taught us how to think critically which is essential for an engineer, I learned how to truly manage my time and how to work excruciatingly hard. She truly cares about her students and as long as you work hard she is an amazing resource for both your academic and professional future.

The best professor at Solano. If you want to succeed in STEM, she is the obvious choice. Do all the homework, study your notes, and take your time with the lab reports. It's worth it.

This is the best professor you will ever have, with the most rigorous courses that will leave you more prepared for the topics when you reach university than people who have gone straight to 4-years. The work ethic required to get an A in this class is on par with professional work and she puts her heart into making sure you get the material.

In Dr. Lutz, Solano Community College has a professor of the highest quality. Her classes are tough but you will finish them 100% prepared for the university level. You will not find a professor who genuinely cares more about the success of her students than she does. You should consider yourself very fortunate if you get to take her classes.

She knows what she's doing and she is a great lecturer but her tests are super hard, she's rude, and students have to write about 20 pages of lab work a week. I would not recommend her unless you're a genius

Immensely rigorous instructor, will be the toughest you've had to date. I highly respect her and believe her style of lecture is an art. However, of a class of 30, over 20 students got a C. It is possible to be successful with her, but very difficult. Don't fall into the hype of taking her. You have options, consider going elsewhere for an A.

If you truly want to be an ENGINEER then LUTZ is the professor to TAKE! She is tough to get use to if you slack-off, but come prepared to learn and do all your work and you'll be fine. Taking her for PHYS 6 & 7 as well as ENGR 17, 30, 45 is crucial to your future success. She will become your mentor and guide you to internships and your career.

Dr. Lutz is the greatest professor I have ever had. I took all of her courses. She is passionate about the subjects cares so much about her students success. She doesn't just teach you the subject matter, she changes the way you think and approach problems. Her classes are not easy, but you will learn more than you ever thought possible.

She can be extremely hard, rude, and she'll force you to be meticulous. She only GUIDES you through the course material and will NOT break it down to an easily understandable level. With that being said, Lutz has been the greatest contribution to my engineering education. Although you will hate life in her classes, she'll make you a great engineer.

Comment:
Lutz is very tough. However, engineering is a tough field and she does her best to prepare you for it. Statics will reinforce the stuff you learned in PHYS 6. All work must be shown clearly because she wants you to prove to her that you know what you're talking about 100% of the time. You will work excruciatingly hard in and out of her classes.

Physics 7 is the hardest class that you will take in your academic career while on the path to becoming an engineer, even at the university. Lots of reading and asking questions. A 15-20+ page lab report every week is the norm. The final is much easier than the 3 exams. She really cares about the material and the students.
