Comment:
He's actually a pretty interesting guy, full of knowledge, definitely has his own way of doing things, grading is entirely based off of how you do compared to others in the class. You have to put a lot of work in but he's not nearly as bad as everyone says. Has a lot of insight into the chemical engineering industry.

AVOID HIM IF YOU CAN! Do not take a class with this professor. He likes everyone to have a failing grade so you don't know if you will pass until the very end. He gives out only a few A's. I actually tried very hard on the final and I got a 10% on it.. Literally failed everything in the class and somehow got a C.. so there is hope? Still, avoid him

Comment:
this man is very old school. He doesn't have much respect for his students and believes his way is the right and only way. He doesn't teach the material at all. You have to pick up the book and learn how to do it, even the book we purchased doesn't really help. Exams are ridiculous but luckily he curves. Avoid him as much as possible.

Comment:
Be aware that prof. Wilcox is old and very old school as well. Rewards those who research already proven designs and not those who spend the time crunching the numbers making designs themselves. It doesn't matter to him that you may have optimized a design for productivity, if it hasn't been already proven in journals then you are wrong.

He does not teach at the level Clarkson says their education is at. I didn't learn a single thing from him. Quietly reads word for word from pre-made slides from a 3rd party (wiley plus). Puts questions on tests that only he would know. Often brags about how students don't do well on his tests. Doesn't do any examples. The class is useless also.

Useless teacher. Had him for materials science. He talked at you and went through his slides so fast, if you blinked you missed them. His tests are impossible too. Everyone in my class only passed on his curve. Avoid at all costs

Good guy once you get to know him, chem e's don't ****him off, he can make you fail at life! As far as teaching, when he stops telling stories of the fortrand days and actually teaches he's an easy prof. to learn from

Doesn't give lectures as much as rambles on about his brothers job, yet he requires attendence. Hard to get in touch with because he does keep a busy schedule with NASA. If you present yourself as a near equal though, you will have no trouble with him
