Course Comments
1

The course with a multi-disciplinary perspective. Well presented needed softwares (basic/most important parts). Realizaing and understanding actual control systems. Involved in latest technology (web-enabled control).

2

Strengths: Material well organized and clearly presented. a good introduction to current computer technologies for an engineer - esp html and dll's. Improve: maybe provide some digital control theory in parallel. an overview of operating systems would be useful too.

3

Clear presentaion of material. Some discussion of applications to more traditional control systems could enhance the course. For example, a VB front end to interface with a servo control system, or interface to PLC network monitoring some industrial equipment, etc.

4

The bigest weakness was the computers downstairs. There should be some computers that work for us to try our circuits on. The last couple of weeks, it seemed there was a couple, but I felt that there should have been more available. Also they could be in a little better shape. Most of them looked like they were pulled from a dumpster somewhere.

5

I could taste Visual Basic from the shell to the core. Well-designed course, great instruction.

6

This was the best course I've taken at Drexel. I liked having the ability to work through every aspect of computer interfacing, project design, TCP/IP client/server applications.

7

The hands on experience is priceless. I don't believe I've learned more practicle information in any one class before this one. My only complaint is that this course required a lot of work outside of class. I don't mind the work, I just was not prepared for it. I warning at the beginning ot the course would be helpful.

 

Instructor Comments
1

Well prepared and knowledgeable.

2

The instructor expects a lot from the students, which is good, but it would have been good if the programs that we were entering in class where given out ahead of time so that we didn't have to rush through the typing so fast.

3

He gave us motivations. Those motivations stimulated me everytime. Well prepared, Good communication. Eager to help us. One of Excellent professors in Drexel.

 

General Comments
1

It was difficult work (testing, troubleshooting etc.) with only 2 computers. Drexel should provide at least 8-10 computers for this course(s)

2

The VB book used was not terribly useful unless you actually went through it compeltely. A reference book (with an index and a command reference) might be better for some students than a How to... book such as this one.
