The time commitment for "Quantitative Methods in Systems Engineering" is approximately five hours per week. This includes activities such as watching videos, reading course content, completing practice activities, and working on application or project assignments.
While there are about 10 videos per week, the course is designed to be more focused on active learning rather than passive video-watching. It encourages learners to engage with the content and apply the concepts in practical ways.
The course is self-paced, allowing learners to go through the content at their own schedule. However, there are specific assignments that have deadlines and require coordination among students for submissions.
A message board is available for learners to use, and discussion is encouraged. While the professor may not directly respond to questions, there is a team of teaching assistants (TAs) who will moderate the discussions and provide support.
