Course content was interesting. However, for a course on design, this course was not well designed.

Probably the toughest grader you can get for a supposedly bird course. Her response to questions are weak.

Comment:
For the majority of this course, we wrote papers which accounted for nearly our entire grade, and therefore could not spend much time designing our project. We got all of our grades back for the entire term after all of our papers were handed in, which is not much help because that feedback was too late. Also she took away Symposium.

Not worth any time to speak about her, the worst human being that I ever met in my life. Leave SYDE, choose some engineering program that truly helpful for you in future.

WORST OF ALL PROFESSORS YOU'LL EVER MEET. Only cares about her reputation and doesn't really care about the success of students. My personal recommendation is to choose another engineering program that best fits your skills and appreciate you. SYDE department is completely corrupted by her.

She really knows what she's talking about and makes it interesting. The projects are fun and easy, and she gives you the change to fix them for higher marks, making it super easy to get good marks in the class. Tests are fair and openbook. She tried really hard with our class to make sure it was working for everybody.

Comment:
Very insightful professor regards to design methodology and incorporating systems thinking into design processes. She helps define the 'design' aspect of systems design engineering. Personally believe that she teaches one of the most core values of the program. Great person, helpful and willing to listen to students.

Comment:
Seeing as she comes from a design background, is well suited to teach this course. Very thorough on different design methodologies, though sometimes things will seem easy and obvious. Very helpful when it came to issues with the design project, though it's largely a do-it-yourself project.

Comment:
Taught well for SYDE 101, which in itself is an easy course relatively, being mostly an intro to SYDE and the school (co-op etc.) Was clear covering the broad topic range. Stood out for offering help and advice outside of classes and not just for academic-related issues. Was a good prof.

One of my favorite teachers in SYDE, can come across mean but is actually a really nice person. Takes the time to provide a lot of feedback. Most students don't appreciate what she teaches until a couple years down the road when they actually need to apply the knowledge.

As a biological entity, all MacGregor needs is a mouth and intestines, and both serve the same function in her case.
