Les destinataires de ce cours : This class is aimed at the beginning graduate student, or the well-prepared undergraduate in engineering, mathematics or the physical sciences. A working knowledge of linear algebra (matrix-vector manipulations) is needed. Some exposure to partial differential equations would be very helpful. Experience with programming is a must. This could be Matlab or a language such as Fortran, C or Python.

good for learning.

I've encountered very few courses that demonstrate the detailed connection between what we learn in theory and applying them in programming languages. The instructions on programming assignments are limpid, can get through them even with very little programming experience.

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 !

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.
