All Ratings and Reviews for Marta Pozuelo
The class material is very manageable, but her grading unnecessarily picky. Even if you get the right answer on your homework or midterm, you might end up with a low score because of wrong graph readings (if you read 550C instead of 560C on a super rough scale, for example). Or, your short answer doesn't hit the specific vocabularies she is looking for. You will have no idea what grade you have the entire time. The rubric is not clear at all.
This is a review for MSE 104, which isn’t listed yet. I thought she was a decent professor, but not super engaging and sometimes hard to understand. Her tests were tricky and often focused on tiny details. A lot of the information on the tests came directly from lecture and were really hard to find anywhere else, so it was pretty important to pay attention in lecture. She was super nice and tried to learn everyone’s name. If you’re super interested in materials science I would definitely go to her office hours and talk to her about the detailed stuff! If not, you can probably take this class and just read the textbook and do just fine. I thought it was a little harder than I would’ve hoped for this class. The grade scheme was very nice (2 quizzes, 1 midterm, HW, final).
This is the most chill MSE lab, but it is definitely the most boring and most useless. The exams were pointless and the lab section was just basic MyDAQ wiring and coding to turn on a LED light. Nothing really spectacular or life changing. I do not feel any more enriched by the class, but at least it was easy AF. Little to no effort required in the class and lectures are a waste of time. Would recommend to all seniors or as a filled lab class during a hard quarter.
