Each instructor was very knowledgeable and infused the lesson topics with real world examples. CFS is a great program taught by excellent instructors. This course helped me gain a solid understanding of mechanical engineering and develop the technical knowledge important to this field. It also makes me realize the complexities and challenges we face, and that makes the work even more interesting.”
