Comment:
The professor is rigid, and the worst part is that he holds a stale education concept in mind. He does not use the learn system and refused many good recommendations from students including using the forum like learn or piazza to discuss questions. He trained his TAs to be killers who gave you lowest grades, and not respond to your request.

Comment:
The worst professor I've ever met. A lot of work loads, which form a huge contrast with last year. He is harsh to us. I've never seen a professor who'd like to run away when student wants to ask him a question. He tries his best to make our study more difficult. His course lacks transparency, not using learn, hide the grade until the very last.

The workload is two heavy. Three individual project, and you need to demo your project to TA and write a report every time. 10 pages IEEE paper and a 10-minute presentation. And! Here is a final exam which weight 50%... And professor speaks with a strong accent.

Pretty good prof. He explains the material clearly (tings + a bizarre array of circles)... and is helpful. ECE 355 is boring as hell but it's NOT his fault.

Comment:
Professor Naik is very friendly and knowledgeable. We all know that the 355 course is boring but we can't blame Naik. He did an excellent job making the course more interesting by making topic links to industry. Very helpful if you run or plan to run a software business. The project was pretty cool too - VOIP!

Comment:
First of all, this is the worst course ever (ECE dept. knows this too). Software "Engineering"? It's basically an entire course on documentation. As bad as the course is, Naik (who's a nice guy) somehow makes it more cryptic and seem more useless. He refers to everything as "tings" (things) and draws random stick figures and boxes on the overheads.

Hey, Naik's not as bad as these comments would have you believe. He does know his topic matter, and gives straight-forward explanations of network protocols, with helpful diagrams to boot. Makes you think about broad design decisions instead of the nitty-gritty of packet headers.

Comment:
Dry course. Naik can't teach! His teaching approach is to write out his notes that he has prepared ahead of time onto the transparent lecture slides. With his notes he is pretty lost, take away the notes and the guy would be stranded.

This guy was just trying to experiment his new book on us. The stuff he was teaching was useless and was taught in the most confusing manner. He really screwed us on the final exam.
