He is an excellent prof. he is humble with his vast knowledge. I found him very passionate about the topics and he is one of those smart people that can make look simple very hard and dry topics.. He has very strong background in math and other stuff that allows him to talk in a holistic way. His assns and projects are interesting and force you..

Great prof! Really knows his stuff and delves right into the math behind it. Definitely take if interested in the subject - its content heavy so beware - but the assignments help with understanding, as do the office hrs - very helpful.

Not a bad prof, really good at explaining concepts, our final exam mark was scaled for sure cause that final was difficult! Take only if really interested in the subject as he goes into detail, which is good for fully understanding concepts. Assignments felt rushed& theres a semester group project. Wish he gave more practice questions though.

Final Exam has nothing to do with his usual teaching material. Don't recommend this guy

SFU should really stop hiring people like this! I was in love with AI and Biocomputing until I took this course with Ghassan.. I hate this topic now, and it will never be changed again..

His class was a journey!!! We never knew what happens next, and same story for the final exam/midterm. We didn't know what it is about, until 3 days before the exam. He pulled out a sample question list, and guess what!! the Exam was completely different from it!!! I Do NOT recommend, taking any course with Ghassan

STAY AWAY FROM HIM! -- I'm sure he wrote those positive comments himself. He joked about it once during the semester. and that is exactly how he got all of us (students in this class) to register. We all trusted those few positive reviews and took his class. VERY VERY disappointed.

OMG, the final was awful! I think everyone failed it. Those positive reviews down here fooled me and many other people to take this course. This guy is legit the most awful instructor that there is!

HE is the equivalent of useless! Exams are very difficult, and has nothing to do with what he teaches.

Ghassan is the WORST prof in SFU! He doesn't know how to teach. His exams are completely different from what he teaches, and his course material are just useless. There is no book, and no slides to read for the final. He completely screwed everyone up.

He was very unhelpful. Lectures consist of him reading from the textbook and typing out examples IN the book. Tries to avoid answering questions at all costs. He wants you to direct all questions to the TA. This course just seems like it's an afterthought, like he doesn't really want to be teaching it.

He is a great prof, very nice, calm and knowledgeable. If you have interest in biomedics, definitely take his class. I have never received as much feedback or help from any professor at sfu so far.

I always get excited and energetic about my project, when I talk to him. He is very very knowledgeable, patient, super helpful and a nice person. I should say he is one of the BEST.
