COR1203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is a very cool person, but his lectures are pretty boring. He just lectures with slides and goes over basic principles, usually things that are self explanatory. Lots of silly assignments and group work, and a quiz almost every day

ce2103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's very knowledgeable about what he teaches but his way of teaching is not helpful. He has slides that he goes over very fast and is hard to follow because he expects you to self learn it. If you have no idea what to do you need a lot of tutoring outside of class. His class is not helpful because he just talks and not really solve problems.

Very difficult course. Demanding, hard core, etc. Nothing different from the real world. He expects you to know the material and keep up. Difficult to meet during office hours. You will learn a lot but you will work for it. Don't be late!!!

He is very strict and can be very rude to his students at times when you ask for help. If you are a min late you can forget about coming into class. He knows his stuff very well but yells at you if you ask a question. Be prepared before class because he has quiz's everyday.You will do most learning from textbook. Only plus is his test are not hard.

CE3103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very knowldegable, however, not very nice. Tends to yell instead of just speak. Lectures go over concepts, not examples. Attendance mandatory because he gives quizzes that total 35% of your grade. Wouldn't recommend if another teacher is available, but he is bearable.

Teacher is very demanding. Students can easily pass the class if homework is done and chapters are read. Very interesting, also, in Russia you get shot!!!! "Did you read the bloody book?" makes class interesting.

EGR1303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I haven't gotten anything out of this class.. everything's common sense stuff. The quizzes at the end of class are the only reason probably 1/4 of the class of 250 show up and even then 1/2 just sleep. And the quizzes are trick questions that have nothing to do with the lectures. I pay attention and come to class, but I have no idea what my grade i

Intro to EGR Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I thought he was a great teacher. People **** about how he gives a lot of quizzes but they're easy and only the people who don't go to class are negatively affected by them. The class is interesting but don't bother taking notes because there will never be a test on anything from the lecture. It's good for exposure to the field of engineering.

The class was not wat i expected, it was very VERY boring! but the professor is very knowledgable on the subject, even though he tends to go off topic most of the time.. he's a cool professor i'd love to take for another class... because this class is just a waste of time... pick him if he teaches anything else...

EGR 1303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The class is nothing but lectures and are quite boring. The only reason most went for 2 resaons you were in the learning community or you had to drive across town and wanted to avoid traffic. there was the quizes at the end of each lecture and the recitations were nothing but busy work. very easy a but the you only take it cause its required.

Before this class, I wanted to be an engineer. I wanted to do what engineers did, I wanted to build, to design, to research. Now, however, I am seriously thinking about never, ever, ever touching engineering again. For my curiosity, however, I am taking two more classes. I pray they are better than this.

Eng 1303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The only reason for going to this class is to take the pointless quizes during the last 15 minutes of each class. This class would have been better if the work was a little more geared towards engineering and the lectures actually showed what engineers do. Don't buy the book just share with someone else and don't expect to find out your average.

eng 1303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

the first month or so of the class was just lectures on engineering history and examples and whatnot. but then we started doing quizzes. to me the class just seems a little too boring. i wish it were more involved. and with the recitation classes, one thing i would have to suggest is get TA's that actually can carry a conversation in english.

Grow up everyone. This is an intro to engineering class, how else would you prefer Dimitriu to structure his class? Hes a mechanical engineer its what he knows, the same would be true if it were an electrical engineer it would be biased to EE's. Just accept its required so you may as well have fun.

EGR 1013 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Well, hes ok, but still he rambles pontlessly and he structures his classes around mechanical enginnering, its understandable seeing he is a mechanical professional. The problem is this is supposed to be a generalized engineering class and it biased.

the class is easy but he does take role in the class of 250 as part of your grade. the work is simple but timeconsuming as it is a bunch of essays that are really boring and pointless.
