Great professor, not too sure why there aren't any reviews for him. I took him over summer so the course went by really fast but he honestly made it really manageable. Every lecture was clear and for what others say is one of the hardest undergraduate upper div in mechanical engineering, it was probably my favorite. That isn't to say his class was easy, the midterm and final average were in the mid 70's and low 60's respectively, but he obviously curved so it was nice. But the key to acing his exams is to just really understand the Hw and to do the practice problems he gives you.
Overall, I felt like I learned A LOT from him. If I were to take this class I would definitely take it with him again.
This is a decent class that is taught well by Kim, but the material is just so challenging. Its a LOT of material that feels really rushed through at times, and requires a lot of outside study in order to fully understand it. Kim writes VERY quickly and it is a challenge to keep up and get all the information. The homework assignments are challenging but are the most important way to study and understand the material. The midterm was pretty rough because it relied on a lot of principles that weren't stressed in class (like principles from EE 100 or conceptual proofs we hadn't discussed). The lab sessions were kind of a joke because it would be a pre-written Matlab script where we had to change 3-4 lines and then upload a report with screenshots of the resulting plots. The TA you have for this can make or break your experience with the labs. Overall, a rough class but there is good support available.
