來自ENERGY PRODUCTION, DISTRIBUTION & SAFETY的熱門評論
I truly enjoyed this specialization and it has prepared me for my future in the energy industry.
Best course from Energy Production, Distribution & Safety Specialization
This is a great specialization course, and helped me so much.
What an Extraordinary Course, I really appreciate meeting with such a skilled professor and a tutor too.\n\nThough his main focus was on the USA and quiz were mainly focusing on the USA not globally.
Interesting course to understand the basics of electricity and the grid. I think that the facts related to renewable energy should be more up to date since this is a sector that evolves very rapidly.
It's a great course. I've learned a lot here. I've learned how to protect Myself while working from electrical hazards or other hazards. I've learned how to protect workers if you're an employer.
I had a great time and got alot to learn. Each and every topic was covered in detail and instructors explanation was beyond everything. Each and every concept was delivered in a proper manner.
well, Thank you very much learn this course for electrical engineering i am now able to understand the power system after finish this course . I hope in future i learn more course like this
