Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted March 14, 2011 Grade Received: N/A

I am finishing up his Nanoscience and Nanotechnology class, and I felt compelled to write about this guy. He clearly puts zero effort into the his lecture and literally copies and pastes text and images from textbooks. He offers a very sub-par explanation of the subject and when you try to ask him a question about the material, he just stares at you like he doesn't understand what you're saying, and then offers a response on a completely unrelated topic. The class is very easy, too easy. I came to graduate school to learn and instead we're being spoon fed the most trite and watered down explanation of nano-technology. Not once did we delve into detail into the true physics behind any of the technologies we discussed. Instead of explaining the material, he just hands it to you to memorize. Yes you can regurgitate it, but you don't truly grasp it. I've learned way more on wikipedia that i've learned in his class.
Bottom Line: Easy A, but that's not why I came to grad school.

I took "Nanoscience and Technology" class from him. He does not speak perfectly but it is understandable. The course required lots of work but not very tough work due to its being multidisciplinary class. There were weekly hws (20%) which were generally not very difficult but required to review the lecture notes and some google search. I mean they took some time. Other than, there were totally 4 quizes (25%) which were multiple choice 5-6 questions. Although I was fine, I will not give good feedback about these since they were a lot tricky. In one quiz, I was the lowest of the class whereas in another I was the highest. So, if you need to be lucky. Also, there were more than 1 correct answer; but the Prof. said "select the most correct" :) It was really weird. There was not a midterm but a final (30%) and a class project(25%) that required a team work and a class presentation but not any additional report. Final was composed of analytical problems, multiple choice questions and concept questions. It was not easy also not hard. Class presentations needed to be mainly based on a new idea that you would purpose. You need to organize your team and propose a novel idea to solve a scientific or technical problem. Finally, the grading seems not bad.
