    I have taken all the mechanics courses from Dr. Whiteman and enjoyed each one. They were a great to recap on from my University modules.
    Dr. Whiteman explains the material very well. Would definitely recommend.

    I highly recommend the series of Mechanical Engineering courses offered by Dr. Whiteman. The courses are self contained if taken in order, and all the theorems given are developed in the class, no formulas are thrown at you, so you can understand where...

    A fundamental course best suited to learn and polish your solid mechanic's concepts.The course starts with basic of physics and mathematics which are core to any solid mechanics course, after the course takes off and almost covers lucidly all the solid mechanics basic structure. I took the course in my third year of Civil Engineering and it was one of my best online learning experience.Dr. Wayne Whitman's way of explaining the concepts adds to the color of this course.I would recommend this to anyone who is starting his college as a freshman in Civil or Mechanical Engineering or other related branches.

    Dr. Wayne Whiteman,

    The course "Mechanics of Materials II: Thin-Walled Pressure Vessels and Torsion:" was again a very nice refresher course. I appreciate your video lectures.
    Please keep these types of classes going!

    Really good lectures. Loved taking it. It was a good complement to my graduation, since I did not got it so well the first time. My only complaint is that the question on the forum are never (or it take to much time) answered.

    This course and the book on "Mechanics of Materials" by Gere go side by side. So, if you are going through book and taking this course as well, you will definitely find yourself at good position.

    Dr. Wayne is a great teacher. I enjoyed the course a lot, however, more examples and more difficult problem solving approach should also be taught to students during the classes.
