COSC4370 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Nice instructor that wants you to succeed. He helped explain the algorithms in the book in a clear manner. He demanded full attention and participation, but with good reason. Homework instruction needs improvement as it was not very helpful and need some guidance on reading material. Overall good quality.

He rarely comes to the classes. Instead, he sends his students. Ioannis is very harsh person. Neither take a class nor work with him.

COSC6391 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Kakadiaris can be demanding and no-nonsense to the point of offensive, and his lectures are so-so. However, he pushes professionalism harder than other profs at UH. which is good prep for the academic job market, and he practices what he preaches. Take him if you value being pushed and don't mind a bit of ego.

COSC5000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If you get an offer from Ioannis, you should be very careful before you accept it. Because most of the students at University of Houston do not want to work with him, he tries to find and hire innocent students all around the world.

He is the worst PhD and postdoc advisor ever. He is always stressful and aggressive at his office, on the other hand, he tries to smile and make joke in public. Although you are PhD student, you can hear from him: "You are not a student, you must do what I say", "I am paying you, you should do this, otherwise you can leave now". Stay away from him!

There is no need to take his classes or to work with him. I really wonder if there is a worse advisor than him or he is the worst.

In his class you are expected to learn a lot by yourself. You will be a powerpoint master by the end of the semester. The grades are not bad, but you need to work to get them.
