“I was very impressed with the instructor’s ability to help students if they get stuck,” says one student. “I’ve had many technical classes over the years, but this class was probably the best yet. The instructor was very skilled and capable of communicating difficult concepts with simplified examples. The off-site lab equipment was easy to use and performed well for my labs. Overall, I felt this was the most worthwhile class I’ve ever taken.”
