It is very well structured and Dr Krishna Garikipati helps me understand the course in very simple manner. I would like to thank coursera community for making this course available.

Well worth the time if you wish to understand the mathematical origin of the FEM methods used in solving various physical situations such as heat/mass transfer and solid mechanics

This is a good intro course which introduce the Finite Element Method step by step, which suited me perfectly since I hardly coded in c++ nor did FEM before.
Nevertheless, as a graduate student, the pace is very slow, and the outline and motivation unclear, which would likely have discouraged me if I did not review video in x2, and stuck to second week lectures and onward.
I would advise to introduce more outline and motivation at the beginning of the week lecture to keep students motivated.
Apart from that, I recommand the course !

The course is a nice and well structured from theoretical point of view introduction to Finite Element Methods. The computational part is a little marginal in the course, but is the main for the grading. If the course had a perfect division between theory and computational part it would've been perfect. The only problem is that in theory, one does the same kind of calculations over and over again, and it's boring after few times.

In principle, it is a good course and taught in a very understanding manner. For a five star rating, I would like to suggest that there should be additional physics, e.g. convection problems, or turbulence, featuring a CFD chapter for example with heat transfer.

A good primer of the theoretical fundamentals of the Finite Element Methods. The coding assignments were good too but could have benefited more with support from the mentors via the forums.

The course is really deep and I have to say the professor really inspired me to keep learning.It might be a little slow but the course is in general pretty good.

The course was was great. However, illustrative examples solving real engineering problems could be introduced in lecture.

Really recommend it. There will be times when you think you should give up, but just finish it. It is worth it.

Well structured course. It builds up from the basics of finite elements to more complex problems.

Good content, not easy for beginners. It may take much longer to fully understand the content covered in the lecture.
Programming exercise is somehow difficult as you have to watch dealIii tutorial videos on YouTube yourselves.
One particular drawback is that the presentation skill of the instructor should be improved as there are a lot of repetitive unnecessary and redundant writing and explanation.

Okay for learning the basics of FEM outside of a real clasroom setting. Focused too much on using their own software for actual FEM analysis. I understand that creating an actual FEM from scratch is too much to ask for an online course, but a lot of their program isn't well documented and detracts from the learning experience.

You will need much more time than the time listed (expectation time listed). Although you can learn
a lot!!!!! I feel grateful!

Unfortunately i had to drop from the course during week 3 because in order to follow the coding assignments one needs to download the virtual machine. However this software is not compatible with current Mac computers (or at least I have not been able to install it).
I strongly recommend the organizers to add in the description all the requirements in order to prevent people the waste of time.
