ミシガン大学(University of Michigan) による Introduction to Thermodynamics: Transferring Energy from Here to There の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



COURSE DESCRIPTION This course provides an introduction to the most powerful engineering principles you will ever learn - Thermodynamics: the science of transferring energy from one place or form to another place or form. We will introduce the tools you need to analyze energy systems from solar panels, to engines, to insulated coffee mugs. More specifically, we will cover the topics of mass and energy conservation principles; first law analysis of control mass and control volume systems; properties and behavior of pure substances; and applications to thermodynamic systems operating at steady state conditions. COURSE FORMAT The class consists of lecture videos, which average 8 to 12 minutes in length. The videos include integrated In-Video Quiz questions. There are also quizzes at the end of each section, which include problems to practice your analytical skills that are not part of video lectures. There are no exams. GRADING POLICY Each question is worth 1 point. A correct answer is worth +1 point. An incorrect answer is worth 0 points. There is no partial credit. You can attempt each quiz up to three times every 8 hours, with an unlimited number of total attempts. The number of questions that need to be answered correctly to pass are displayed at the beginning of each quiz. Following the Mastery Learning model, students must pass all 8 practice quizzes with a score of 80% or higher in order to complete the course. ESTIMATED WORKLOAD If you follow the suggested deadlines, lectures and quizzes will each take approximately ~3 hours per week each, for a total of ~6 hours per week. TARGET AUDIENCE Basic undergraduate engineering or science student. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - What are the prerequisites for taking this course? An introductory background (high school or first year college level) in chemistry, physics, and calculus will help you be successful in this class. -What will this class prepare me for in the academic world? Thermodynamics is a prerequisite for many follow-on courses, like heat transfer, internal combustion engines, propulsion, and gas dynamics, to name a few. -What will this class prepare me for in the real world? Energy is one of the top challenges we face as a global society. Energy demands are deeply tied to the other major challenges of clean water, health, food resources, and poverty. Understanding how energy systems work is key to understanding how to meet all these needs around the world. Because energy demands are only increasing, this course also provides the foundation for many rewarding professional careers....




Great course. But I was also hoping to get an in-depth analytical understanding of the second law of thermodynamics and the zeroth law as well. But I really enjoyed it and definitely learned a lot.



Courses from the University of Michigan are always awesome. Hats off to Margaret Wooldridge, mam. Thank you so much, Coursera and the University of Michigan for making this outstanding experience.

I started learning courses from online this is so use full to me.I also recommended my friends to learn online.THANKS FOR PROVIDING THIS COURSE.

by Tejaswini G


An amazing course. The instructor does a really good job of explaining all the concepts very clearly. Please upload more classes to Coursera!

It was very helpful and well explained course. The information was very precious and the teacher Miss Margaret Wooldridge taught very well.

by Yaknesh S


This course really gave a good idea of the basic thermodynamics and tutor is really took good measure in brining the subject to the viewer.

by Amrutha c


Best lecture i ever had in thermodynamics, also the basics are introduced and explained in easily understandable form.thank you professor

by Christos M


I very well structured and interesting course, with simple and easy understandable learning methods for the principles of Thermodynamics!

by Dwayne C


The lessons were explained clearly and are intuitive to the learner. This course gives a solid foundation in engineering thermodynamics.

by Nichole A B


This helped me a lot because it is my requirement in my chemistry course. Ms. Margaret is a good professor and I learned a lot from her.

by Ankit S


This course had alot of unnecessary discussion about fuel consumption which I think is not needed here.

This wanted almost 80% of week 8.

by Gioele B


I really appreciate the number of excercises in this course. This helps me a lot with the theoretical topics that have been explained.

by J. A J


Helped in understanding the basics of thermodynamics,gives a clear picture about the fundamentals .

teaching style is very impressive.

by CJ


Nice course. Clear concepts to learn the fundamental concepts of thermodynamics. Should go in-depth with steam tables for analysis.



One of the best course to learn thermodynamics. but there are so much more in thermodynamics which has to be covered for beginners.

by R R R


All the lectures delivered by the faculty are nice, it would be better to provide more practical examples related to thermal field

by Sathvik V


Very interesting course. I understood much about thermodynamics. Thanks to Professor Margaret Wooldridge for this amazing course.



In a crystal clear way, all the concepts were explained. I enjoyed and learned a lot through the eight weeks of this course.

by Andrew E


Exceptional content. First rate course. Strongly endorse anyone in the scientific/engineering fields to take this course.

by Chandrakant G


The course was good and helpful, I also like to appreciate Dr. Margaret for her work and and willing to attend more course.

by Deleted A


Very good for starters that want to learn the basic of thermodynamics especially for mechanical engineering undergraduate.

by Sayli G


Loved it. Didn't talk much about entropy but still, amazing because i am a beginner here. Really strengthened my concepts.

by Mansoor A


Though I have not yet competed all the lectures, but I am impressed with the level of effort put in this course. Thank you



Thank you for the training course. this course is very interested and my favorite topic, also useful for my current job.

by Paresh G


Very good in terms of the overall structure of the course, instructor, and the kind of knowledge she delivered. Super.
