the instructor are really helpful, replies to question are really quick and the lectures are really clear... over all a good course indeed.

Excellent course overall, and one of the best resources available for beginners. Do not expect a walk in the park however. This course expects maximum effort, which will ultimately help in the long run.

Very helpful, challenging assignments, prompt response from the mentors. This course helped me to gain confidence in coding. In the beginning I have no knowledge on Matlab, by the end of the course I can say that I am proficient in Matlab.Thank you so much for the mentors for providing such a wonderful online course.

Prof. Mike Fitzpatrick is excellent in his way of teaching and makes us to understand the difficult concepts with ease.
