Fall 2020 - Professor Goorsky is an amazing professor. He explains everything clearly and doesn't rush through the topics. After having a bad experience in 104, his passion for the subject material was refreshing and got me excited about materials science again. He genuinely cares if the students in his class learn the material and is always willing to help kids out. The practice exams matched up really well with the tests so they prepared you for all the types of questions you could see on the exam. The TA was also super helpful.
Spring 2021 - You get to do some cool stuff with silicon wafers in this lab. Reports are easy and experiments are pretty fun. There is a group presentation and a final quiz as a part of the course evaluation, but both are easy enough if you've paid attention in class. Recommended.
Winter 2016 - Excellent professor. I heard he won a best teacher award...I'm not surprised. Dr. Goorsky gives engaging lectures and his exams contain very insightful questions that tests the most crucial key concepts. I walked away very inspired, so inspired I left my old research interest to pursue semiconductor research. Silicon and GaAs are so cool!
