Careless, inconsiderate, and unprofessional. No constructive criticism. Held Zoom classes, which turned into YouTube videos. What a waste of money......

Comment:
Rehabilitation engineering is a great subject, but she was not. Professor Ault has no understanding for this subject area. She was never around for questions outside the classroom or for most of the labs. Lectures were boring..

Comment:
Beginner level Solidworks course and she was giving way more advanced assignments than necessary from day one. Grades way too hard, and gives pop quizzes. Do not understand why she assumes we knew Solidworks because it was the Intro course. This professor made my life miserable. Boring lectures.

Careless, inconsiderate, and unprofessional. Does not offer constructive criticism, regardless of giving your best efforts, unless you are succeeding. Gives blatant insults and takes your mistakes and questions personally.

Comment:
Awfil. Lectures from old powerpoint slides which she created years ago. Labs - endless work. She will ask you to do items that she does not even know how to do. Never around for help. Comes to school, teaches and then leaves. Good luck if you have her in any subject.

Comment:
The class itself it really useful and you learn a lot. The classes themselves aren't too great. She grades really hard though.... .like super hard. Think you did it perfectly? Well no, it wasn't how she would've done it so there go most of your points. But I think she scales the class decently at the end, at least the term i took it she did.

She provided little or no direction on the MQP. Does not care for the students or the WPI. I agree with the other student when he stated, "needs to be more practical, intuitive and well-rounded in mechanical design."

Comment:
I don't mind being criticized. But I do expect her to give us directions on solving the problem rather than she pointing out and complaining obvious mistakes, and reiterating the project destinations which we all know. She needs to be more practical, intuitive and well-rounded in mechanical design and analysis essential for prototype development.

Comment:
Absolutely terrible! Following the course schedule, you've got about a week to construct the prototype and write your final report. Sure, if you had no other classes, you could compose the perfect report she expects, but come on, this is a 2000-level class! It feels like she grades this MORE strictly than most professors grade IQP's. DO NOT TAKE!!!

Not so good, unless you have no option just take her but try to go for someone else. Not so clear, expects so much in your project. There is not so much guidelines with her. She expects way too much!!!

Good as an academic advisor, crappy teacher ME2300 was a joke One lab session we spend two hours learning how to use the Internet for research The project topics were stupid and not worthy of being called "engineering" and the only conceptual stuff of value (i.e. patents or the design process) you would just as easily learn on your own

Comment:
Everyone seems to hate this professor. I think the problem is essentially the quizzes that has a decent amount of questions only covered in the assigned reading. Sometimes her assignments are a bit vague. However, whenever I needed help on anything, she was willing to give whatever help she could.
