Comment:
Well he is now a professor at the University of Alberta. I took a Polymer Reaction Engineering course with him last term. I personally loved his lectures. He stops to clear any doubt you have. He clears your doubt after class. Once he was explaining something really complex but made it so simple I had to hold back my tear because of his brilliance.

His voice puts you to sleep sometimes, but he can be fun too. I'll never forget him saying: "Nature can be a *****". He's also a complete badass. Dresses like a terminator :)

I am the azian dude at back corner. This guy is so well dressed sometimes I wonder if he goes to Brasil to buy clothes. Oh, and I'm not gay or anything, but he's like 4.5^10*4 hotness factor.

Even though I am 90% sure he hates my guts (coz of a loud snoring incident during his class), I actually think he was a good prof and have nothing against him. Little bit strict, but otherwise pretty chilled out. Teaches using powerpoint (ugh!), that being said he covers good examples in class.

Comment:
Heat transfer is easy, Mass transfer is hard. His midterm and final exams were not hard, and the class did well. Assignments were very helpful and I suggest doing them. He is a cool guy, but makes a lot of mystakes and sometimes 4gets to give you the data that is needed to solve the problem. Helpful outside of class. Class wasn't boring.

Greatest professor ever! Makes class interesting all the time with marshmellow icecream, funny slideshows, and laid back, but extremely helpful. Best first year professor!

I like this guy! He obviously knew the class was a joke so he'd randomly start doing more interesting things like play with liquid nitrogen. Dresses super well...mm. Lectures are boring though.

I slept through this class pretty much every day. His monotone voice will knock you out, and you can always read the suggested readings and slides later. There was no real reason to be there whatsoever. Well organized though, and I've heard the other chem profs are no better or worse.

He was ok. The class was kinda boring, but his voice is just like The Count from Sesame Street...everyday I would sit there and wait for him to go "1 mole a ah aah. 2 moles a ah aah." Made things more interesting.

This guy is a f##king hypocrite. Doesn't tell you what he's expecting, acts like you're doing fine, and nails you on the final. Good dresser though
