Comment:
He is one of the best profs ever. He made class very fun and his style of learning is out of this world. He is the best prof I have ever had and he doesn't even use any notes for teaching, which clearly proves how much he knows the subject. He is always willing to help and if you study hard, you will get exceptional results.

Traditional teacher who teaches very clearly. Tutorials give at the end of most lectures to reinforce material taught as stated below help tremendously. Multiple choice is actually hard for this course. He's a pretty nice person who wants to help.

Comment:
He gives out tutorial questions immediately after teaching the material when it is fresh in our minds. This happens almost every class so we get plenty of practice. Rajinder is clearly very passionate about thermodynamics. Overall, exams are fair but the multiple choice can be brutal and requires thinking.

Only attend if you want to train your arm muscle because all you can see is a nerdy doing his own work while covering his writing all the time. In the middle of the course, the prof said we need to do a project so called a substitute of lecture. Seriously, I learn more from wikipedia than doing stupid useless project, and paper projects are useless

This professor was really awesome. One of the best professors I've had in my academic career attending the University of Waterloo. 10/10 would recommend someone to take this course. His OCBD game is on point.

Bet most clear course I've taken. Examples, tutorials and assignments is relevant to the lecture taught. Practice makes perfect. I enjoyed being a little bit challenged in the course concepts with the confidence I'd completely understand after an example. Easy 100%'s in assignments, tutorials and high midterm grades.

Professor has a good understanding of his material. Is a good teacher. Willing to help you in his office even on weekends. Very enthusiastic about what he teaches. Stresses on memorizing core concepts so they are in the mind even when the course is done.

Awful professor. Accent is very hard to understand and he has no interested in helping students succeed. Content is easy but exams don't reflect material taught.

Comment:
Taught us both Thermodynamics and Heat and Mass Transfer and was by far one of the best profs we've had. It always amazed me that he didn't use any notes in class. No textbook wasn't a big deal because his notes and examples were so well done. The finals were a bit rough because it was multiple choice, just make sure you know your stuff!

Fantastic. Absolutely one of the best profs I've ever had. A "guiding light" in the study of thermodynamics. Hope he teaches me again. His exam was not difficult but not easy, 5 cheat pages allowed. His surprise quizzes are open notes and motivate you to attend class.

Comment:
Not a very good prof. Teaches the entire course as a mechanical problem solving course and then tests you on theory on the final instead with true/false and multiple choice. The exam was not representative of what the entire term of course work actually was. Not willing to engage with students.

He is a good, clear lecturer. I found his examples too easy, and not representative of the exam. There's also no textbook, so although lectures are good you are in the dark for the exam. You can do well if you REALLY know your stuff and go to class. I didn't :S

Comment:
Excellent lecturer and gives many good examples. However, does not help out much if you need to talk to him outside of class. Discourages out-of-class contact. Also, a fluid mechanics final exam with 88% of the marks multiple choice/T,F seems extreme. It is an indication of laziness.

This guy is rude. I think someone must let his smart head known that he lives in a civilized country and he is not a king.

Really knows what he is talking about and saves you money by not making you by a textbook. If you go to class and take good notes you will do really well in his class.
