Offering a unique style and philosophy in teaching. It is based on not only presenting and teaching the theoretical part of the subject, but also emphasizing engineering applications and constructability. The latter is achieved by presenting related slides and videos of similar projects including site visits. My method of teaching became very popular and students greatly appreciated it. Department records show that the courses I teach capture the most attention among the students and enrollments are always the highest. As a result, over the years, I was privileged to get the highest rating in the students’ evaluation . My course plan has been implemented and successfully passed the latest ABET accreditation cycle.
