ECE 4070 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I was impressed by the quality and clarity of the lectures, handouts and homeworks. He exceeded my expectations. The course is rigorous and you need a broad background in physics to be able to fully appreciate the content.

This was the best class I have taken at Cornell so far. Rana is out of this world. He is the most eloquent and coherent professor in all of Cornell. Listening to him is like listening to Mozart - not a single word is out of place. Why aren't there more people like him in this world.

Most awesome engineering professor. Teaches very clearly and extremely helpful. Physics-oriented solid state class. More recommended than the equivalent class in the AEP department.

Tough class. Lots of his grad students. Many students will try to take as many classes as they can. Keep up with the mountain of work that you have to do and you'll be fine because he can explain semiconductors to a five year old perfectly.

Best teacher in graduate level Physics. Among the best four professors at any level I have seen so far. Clear and Coherent. Undoubtedly ranks among the finest teachers in EE in the USA.

Farhan is my daddy. Fall 2005 was his first semester being the head professor for a class and it was the best one I've had at Cornell. He should always teach ECE 303 now.

Farhan Rana is an absolute genius. He is always extremely prepared for lecture. His slides are amazing and very helpful. His classes are notoriously hard, but his lectures are good enough for you to do well. Come to class and do the homework and you will do fine in his class.
