While working as a Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics Tech Lead, David Gomez participated in the online Aeroacoustics Professional Certificate Program. Read about his experience.
What was your motivation for enrolling in the program?
I wanted to gain deeper knowledge about methods of analyzing and studying the aeroacoustics, physics and phenomena of drones. The most appealing elements in this program were:
1) the accessibility and convenience of the courses,
2) the fact that to my knowledge this is the only program on the subject that is accessible outside academia,
3) the structure of both courses that allows students to learn the concepts first from a theoretical approach and then second through applying and reinforcing the acquired knowledge in a practical manner,
4) the content and resources provided by the instructors.
I’m now creating a dedicated aeroacoustics team as well as a basic aeroacoustics laboratory. All this was inspired by and thanks to the knowledge gained during the courses of this program.
How would you describe your online learning experience?
The content was great, the videos made by the instructors are clear and the concepts are well explained. The discussion sessions with instructors are a good way to clear up any doubts or uncertainties and discuss concepts. Sometimes questions or quizzes were vague enough to be open to interpretation which is not ideal when there is just one correct answer.
The real cases used as support on the experimental course are great.
What is your advice to someone who would like to take a similar online program?
Be sure to make the time to go through all the material and dedicate a good percentage of time to the assignments which are interesting challenges and a good way of learning and applying the concepts.
