    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You have to take it, so there is no other option. I am not a quantitative type, which made it very hard for me. Professor DiLellio makes it seem so easy, and he clearly explains how to do the work.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much! I learned everything from queue theory to regression analysis. It was hard, and I didn't do the best, but it is well worth the Excel and statistics skills you'll learn.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Strong math background is huge for this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Kamran is an excellent professor. He really knows how to break down the material in a way that is clear and concise, yet full of useful information. What you learn in class can immediately be applied the next day at work.

    Course highlights:

    One of the best parts of this course was the group project. While challenging to get through, it was extremely fulfilling to finish it. It also opens up an avenue for many students to receive promotions at work. And that is Kamran's aim. He hopes that the work we do in class is of such a professional level that it allows us to advance in our careers!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this course, take it with Kamran. You will be challenged, but you will feel prepared and you will grow. Try to do the homework immediately after class if possible, then spend the time between classes practicing and reviewing it for deeper understanding.
