After the first three weeks of classes, I think we’re all getting settled and getting a good feel for what things are like at MIT. I’m pretty happy that most of the coursework in the Master of Engineering in Manufacturing program is group-based. This enables everyone in the group to really concentrate on what interests them, as well as learn from other people’s experiences.
It’s too early to draw any conclusions about the program in general. But, so far, it’s off to a good start. All of the professors are energetic and excited about what they are teaching – in my experience, a rarity at engineering schools – which adds a lot to the classes’ material. The examples they cite in lectures from their industry experience really supports what they are teaching and emphasizes its importance.
All-in-all, this should be a fun (yet busy) year!
