Comment:
We had a final exam at 9Am this morning? Exam was not posted until 9:20. He's always late. I know he's doing other things outside of teaching, but if he can't handle all the load and be organized, he should stop teaching. Being a prof is not only about giving a lecture and going off to do your own things. He never responds to emails or help.

Comment:
A complete clown. Schedules labs OUTSIDE of the regular lab schedule. Never answers questions and cuts a 2hr45min lecture down to 2, and ignores most all questions asked. Just says 'bye.' He signed for this. He signed up to be available for the entire class period. He is a joke for just leaving at his convenience.

Impossible to reach the guy... He never answers his emails ! He's a tough grader and don't ask for explanation because you won't get any. I do not recommend. I took this class as an elective and be sure it was the last time i took a class with that teacher.

He doesn't value your time. Took an online class with him and he would never show up for any zoom office hours or reply to any of the emails. Makes a lot of mistakes in this lecture notes and exams are very lengthy. He is very knowledgeable but not a good professor.

Horrible summer semester with him. He's lost and doesn't follow up with things he says in class. Doesn't answer emails and is very confusing in the material covered.

Comment:
Good lecturer, but it ends there. You cannot rely on him for anything else. No office hours, hardly posts any suggested problems (just tells you to solve the entire textbook as practice yet the exam questions are always 50x harder). He speaks good English and has very high IQ, but it all goes to waste once you look at the difficulty of his exams...

Comment:
Dr. P.Q. Gauthier is one of the best lecturers I have ever witnessed at Concordia. He is truly very knowledgeable and always relates the topics to real life applications. However, his exams are extremely difficult and do not correspond to the level of problems that are taught in class. Mech 370 midterm & final were absolutely brutal, very stressful

He is one of the few gems in this university. The way he explains is really easy to understand and his examples are enough for you to do the tests. My one gripe with him is that his final exam was too long, and he wasn't there to answer questions during the final. Despite that, he is an absolute must for ENGR 391.

Hes is the best professor in the university. You could ask as many questions as you want and as stupid as they could be , he would answer them clearly. All your basics would be strong after taking his class. when he teaches, he inspires and would make understand physical significance of everything he teaches. I highly recommend to take his class.

Awesome lectures. Very reasonable grader. Easy exams. One complaint I have: he walked into the exam and answered questions for the first few minutes, and that was the last we saw of him for the rest of the final.

He marks quite strictly. Provides less practice sheets and expects more in the exams. He's not accessible outside the class.

best professor concordia has to offer! In 3 years he is the only prof that has obviously understood the course material and can explain it flawlessly and comprehensibly. 11/10 recommend taking him wherever it is an option!!

Comment:
In class he solves questions in which all the needed data and numbers are given in the original question. So all he does is simply plug in the given data in an equation. And he says (look class how easy this is). But don't be fooled those questions will never appear in any of his exams. You will have to find all the data by yourself. Study hard.
