[MSAE 4132] E4132: Fundamentals of Polymers and Ceramics

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

BORING is the word that comes to mind. He's a horrible teacher with a very boring teaching style. He repeats word for word (I kid you not) whatever he put on his slides and notebook.

The course is split into two halves: polymers up to the midterm, and ceramics for the remaining time. Tests are heavy on the theory side. Memorize his lectures is the only way to do well on the test, as questions are very very detailed.

Workload:

Weekly problem sets, two papers (one for each class of material), a midterm and final.
