Equipment and Supplies
Enrollment is being expanded; non-engineers with an interest in film, photography and fluids are particularly welcome. This is an upper division course, not suitable for first or second year students. Mechanical engineering students are expected to have had a course in fluids. The class is cross listed. Everybody will work together, and what each person brings to the table will be valued. My expectations will be tailored for students’ different backgrounds, but this is really a fail-safe course. What you get out of it depends on what you put in. See Is Flow Vis Right For You? for more info.

Office: ECME 220
Office hours: Right after class, in ECME 220 or nearby. Or email me for an appointment in my actual office. Monday and Friday afternoons and early evenings are best, and Tuesday Thursday via zoom. I love to look at student work and hear about your setups and plans! I won’t edit for you, but I’ll counsel you through your own editing process.
TA: Shrey Naresh Solanki (firstname.lastname@example.org) can help you with WordPress, Canvas, photography, video editing and administrative stuff. He’s a grad student in Creative Technology & Design.
