Teaching Philosophy

Teachers need to make classes interesting to students. Our students have the talent to be successful engineers, but sometimes students they do not excel because we use monotonous teaching methods and they lose interest. I think we need to offce exciting classes, but at the same time we need to keep the academic rigor to provide the quality and quantity of the material presented in the course. In civil engineering, the professor also has the responsibility of making connections between theory and real applications.

Also, we cannot teach everything in class. I think a course is successful when students learn the fundamental concepts, and start to think independently. If they get the passion for the profession they will keep learning after their “formal” education is complete.
