### Student Opinion[edit | edit source]

Many will loose interest after the "Wing Geometry" part. There are two options to cope up with the course: 1. if you miss classes, go for video lectures on NPTEL (very boring) and give at least 3 days to this course before exams. 2. if you go to classes and understand the course as explained by the prof, no need to check video lectures. Class notes are perfect if you understood in class.
