Comment:
Professor Makrakis focuses on making learning AS STRESSFUL AND IMPOSSIBLE as it can be. No examples were solved in ANY lecture. Lectures were just him reading the slides. To top this, his slides were just copy paste from a textbook. Midterm was tough. Luckily the French section's prof will buffer him in the final.

If UOttawa gave an award for worst prof in engineering, him and Aziz would fight for it every year.

Comment:
One of, if not THE, worst prof at university of ottawa. This guy is giving us exam questions that do not appear anywhere in his slides, and he takes assignment questions from GRADUATE level courses and expects us to solve them. Hence why the average for the first midterm was a fail. STAY AWAY from this professor. AT ALL COSTS.

Comment:
He is worst than Aziz, at the very least you can say that Aziz is incompetent. Dimitrios is a petty, vindictive little man who enjoys teaching nothing, while expecting the moon on his exams. Best advice, do not take him under any circumstance. If you have to, read the book and the practice tutorial. They're a better teacher than he'll ever be.

After COVID he seems to have gotten a lot harsher. Perhaps he is just trying to "prevent cheating" but the midterm was murder.

Comment:
He can be a little intimidating at first since the class size is small, and he wants everyone to participate, lots of questions. Also, his lecture style is more like off-book discussion, trying to let you think about it rather than he does all the talking. Nice prof in general, smart, easy marker(know your material)

Comment:
This is the most unstable professor that I have ever seen. During the midterm, he does not care if you cheat or not, that makes all the students cheating obviously. After that some students make the formal complaint against him, then he revenges the students randomly using unreasonable final marks. You will learn nothing in his course.

He is caring and good person. But there will not be much in his lectures. We have to find resources and learn from them. Practical approach is needed for exam. If we concentrate we can learn.

Knows the material extremely well, ready to answer any question. He gave whatever we need to understand about Wireless Networks. He get rid of all the old unused stuff and explained to us the current and future technology. Very Helpful and reliable. If you like networking this guy is a GURU.

Perhaps the only reason that you rate him favourably, when all others rate him negatively, is that it is YOU, prof Mak! You just HATE teaching, that's all!
