Guy doesn't know what he's talking about and still somehow talks down to students. I didn't learn a thing from him.

Comment:
This professor has no respect for his students. He thinks that all of the students that don't meet his expectations will become garbage collectors in the future. BFI, is his motto and it stands for Brute Force and Ignorance, it supposed to mock those who do things wrong in his class. I think it is fittings as he is very ignorant.

I took ME 4322 with him and he is a good teacher. He speaks really fast at times and sometimes yells a bit. He is a nice person though. As long as you do your work, you will be fine. Quite a reasonable person and grader.

Excellent professor. If he knows what he's talking about he can explain it very well. If he doesn't, he will try to BS his way through. Extremely easy grader as I got A+ or A++ on most of my projects and papers (though we worked really hard on them) would recommend him to everyone. WPI better keep this guy.

Do your work and you will get an A. If you don't understand what to do ask him in class and he will tell you (even during the class where it is due). He grades very lightly so don't worry about it you will probibly do fine.

He likes to do this thing where he jumps up and grabs thin air. He's a crazy man, but awfully understandable. He wants to make sure you get it and calibrates his class accordingly. Homework is really reasonable.

Really helpful guy, ES1310 was not very hard, if you attend all the labs and periodically attend lectures you will get an A

Wonderful professor, interesting class. Very understandable, and if the class doesn't get something will take the time to go over it again in a different way. Brought examples of gears, cams, etc. in to show the class. Projects were interesting and not too much work to complete in the time allotted (about 2 weeks a project). I love this proffessor!

He's a good guy, always easy to interact with. At the beginning of the term I think he was trying to play hardass, but that didn't last long (except for some of the freshmen.) Labs are basically there for the Prof and TA's to hold your hand.
