Awesome professor, super glad I took this class with him. The material is easier than 107 but he explained every concept really well and the workload was a lot less than 107. I thought his midterm was difficult, short problem multiple choice instead of the long 2-4 problems per midterm most of my other professors gave. Final was longer problems and average was a bit higher than midterm (75 vs 73). Gave opportunity for people who did poorly on midterm to take another midterm to boost their grade up to the average. Best advice is for material pre-midterm to really go through all of the nuances and special cases, especially for things like stability, as a lot of midterm problems dealt with cases outside of lecture and needed to be done quickly. Get a good MATLAB script for running root locus, bode, and nyquist plots for the final as it's a very easy way to check your work.

Iwasaki is an incredible professor. He went though everything step by step and made it all super clear, did tons of example problems, and connected everything to actual physical examples. The homework was good practice and reasonable, the only issue was that exams were pretty tough. Still, I 100% taking this class with this professor.

For some reason, professor puts homework problems on things he hasn't taught in class. His lectures are very clear and well-thought out, but it feels like he's setting up students to fail when homework has problems ahead of the current class position.

Super kind professor and clear class! Although I get only A-. If more questions set can be provided before exam, it would be better.

one of the best professors in the ME department. His lectures are well porpared and very clear. He gives many examples which helped me understand new concepts. the exams are multiple choice form, but you really need to know the answers to get the right answers because there could be no answer or more than one answers. also the exams require you clearly understand the concepts, so just having the equations down on your cheat sheets is not enough. I highly recommend him and his lectures for those who are interested in controls.
