ECI 146 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Bombardelli is the best water resources professor at UCD. He genuinely cares about his students' learning and well-being. Had him for 141, and his teaching and grading style is the same. Encourages students to do their best and not worry about grades. Take him and you'll learn to be a better person.

ECI141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He really wants his students to learn. He truly cares about the students and will go above and beyond as a professor/teacher/lecturer. He's always in his office and you can ask him for help anytime. group hw assignments, midterm and final was tough. but he makes up for it with a generous curve. avg was 71 and he said it was an A-!! e103=eci141

The professor is incredibly generous and wants people to understand the material regardless of getting the right answer or not. The material is ENG 103 review but if you don't pay attention in class, study or do much of the homework then its easy to fall behind. The class average must be around a B+. A with a little bit more work

Yawn, yawn, yawn .... very boring class. Mostly revision of material already taken in ENG103. Seriously dumbed down class but professor makes up for it by being nice.

ECI146 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

One of the very few professors in UC Davis that actually cares about his students' learning. Sure, the class may have been a bit on the easy side, but that's because he hammers the concepts into your head prior to the exams. He is also willing to have lunch with his students and talk about career paths, etc.

Professor Bombardelli really cares that you learn the material. The material may be dull at times, but it is not difficult. Also, he gives midterm and final study guides so you know what to expect. Overall, great professor.

Basically EAD115 all over again except this time it is: 1. clearly explained and actually makes sense!! 2. applied to real-world water resources examples!! 3. dare i say...interesting. prof b. cares that people learn and is helpful in and out of class. sometimes the material is tedious, but he adjusts the pace to make sure everyone gets it.

Very dumbed down approach to the subject. Gave out sample test which turned out to be identical to the Final. Confused presentation and makes lots of mistakes in class but makes up for it by being nice.

He was by far the only professor I thought was worth rating. He is the nicest man in the Civil department and cares so much about how much u learn in his class. I never understood fluid mechanics till I took 141. he made everything so simple; group hws, gave sample tests that were practically the actual exam, really helpful office hours. GREAT GUY!

Explains everything clearly and in detail. Expect to copy alot of things from the board. Tests are very much similar to the practice ones. He really likes to give alot of handouts, such as supplemental journal articles about hydraulics, etc. However, he doesn't require you to read these handouts, they are just FYI.

I didn't take 115 so the material of ECI 146 was new to me and very clear. I learned a lot in ECI 146. Younis and Bomardeli made me understand fluid mechanics.

Excellent teacher. I had him in a seminar series and based on his enthusiasm and 146 and I decided to go work in water resources and go to grad school. Take classes with him

Ah ... that was supposed to be "DON'T expect to learn much". I agree with the previous - very much a repeat of 115.

Extremely extremely nice guy but I do not recommend ECI 146. The first half of the class is a less illuminating repeat of EAD 115. About half of each class is spent repeating (verbatim) the material of the previous class. "Plug and chug" best describes the homework. Sure it's easy, but I can't say I learned much.

One of the most enthusiastic and helpful professors that I've had at UCD. He is even willing to go to lunch with groups of students to talk about civil engineering professions... In terms of the class: he gives you a list of questions before tests and then selects a few to give to you on the actual test, and he allows you to work in groups on hw.

If you want to know what 'dumbing down' means then take this class. Very boring too.
