"Without a doubt, my involvement in the Mr. Ohm project has given me
the skills necessary to create discrete transistor circuits in
the future. I received practical skills and a better grasp of circuit
design through this assignment. I was able to translate theoretical
ideas into real-world situations, which would surely help me in my
"We have a broad selection of circuits we can choose from like RF
circuits, power circuits, and digital circuits. Each module contains
at least two or more of the options. I think students can find
whatever they like in Mr. Ohm to work with."
"This project definitely made me more prepared to design
discrete transistor circuits in the future."
"The open-source nature of the Mr. Ohm project I think is great
because any work that is devoted to this project good or bad, can
still aid others from making the same mistakes the previous group
"On behalf of the entire Iowa State Senior Design Team, I would like
to extend our heartfelt appreciation for your guidance and support
throughout the semester. Your expertise and commitment have played
a crucial role in ensuring the success of our senior design project.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with you, and we genuinely
hope our paths cross again in the future."
"Mr. Ohm is a great project for electrical engineering. The website is
very good since it explains the circuit very well."
"We are incredibly thankful for your guidance in helping us understand
how the sensors and circuits that make up your robot work. We are
happy to have worked on this project and hope you continue to work with
more UVM students in the future."
"The fact that the schematic is built by capstone design students,
and it is an overall multiple-team project is outstanding. I
haven't heard of or seen any other senior design project work
this way. I believe this should be standard and will most likely
pave the way for senior design projects in the future."
"The open-source nature of the Mr. Ohm project is one of the
highlights of the project. Mr. Ohm's purpose is to educate
students and learners. I am happy that any and all improvements,
tips, and suggestions from my capstone report will be there for
anybody to reference."
"The Mr. Ohm project offered so much variety of different circuits
to choose from to work on. There were still so many other
subsystems and circuits to choose from despite there already being
about 2-4 other schools working alongside us."
"It was a pleasure to work on this project and to work with you
through this whole process."
"I love to tinker with electronics but when it comes to analog I
often use op amps or application specific commercial chips because
they are easier. (in some ways) Now that I have worked with
transistor level a bit more I have more confidence to work with
transistor level design. In fact, I recently used transistor
level design in a class AB amplifier. I probably would have used
a power opamp if I had not gained this experience from the
Mr. Ohm project."
"I think that an open-source robot is a brilliant community project.
Especially to students who want to learn by hands on experience and the
communication between the robot's creator, Daniel Walker is amazing."
"Working through building the circuit and simulating them and being
safe to change things to my own liking to see what happens build a
lot of confidence."
"This experience improved a lot of problem solving and research
skills that's needed to build discrete circuits and to actually feel
like I'm an engineer."
"I appreciate all the time you have taken to work with us as a team
as the project adapted and took shape throughout the last couple of
