Professor Park is a nice lecturer and cares about his students. He tries to have fun in class and does not make it too stressful. However, his tests and homework assignments were still difficult enough to encourage students to learn. I would take thermodynamics with Professor Park again!
Being a chemical engineer, I don't know if it's possible to avoid a professor but if you can, please don't ever try to be in one of Park's classes. He doesn't try, doesn't care, and is overall just disorganized and unprepared. Unprepared meaning he literally did not even think about what he would lecture on/how he would structure the class. The only potential benefit of this is that you could negotiate due dates/assignments but overall the disorganization is too messy to actually gain any beneficial learning from the 10 weeks with him, which to me is just sad. I would give Park a 0 if possible. As a person, he seems alright but it's obvious he doesn't want to be in the place of a professor. However, he does seem quite petty since one time he called me out with the hopes of trying to catch me not paying attention even though I was perfectly aware of what was going on, despite the lack of substance to his lectures. Prepare for one of his classes by looking for previous quarter material and creating a schedule to self-study. Wishing anyone who comes across him patience and the best of luck.
