My teaching philosophy relies on the following key foundations: Teach only what students are not likely to learn on their own. Foster collaborative learning while maintaining initiative and personal responsibility. And finally, create a life-long quest for learning and knowledge.

I am a strong believer, and this has been a major guiding principle in my courses, that our responsibility as engineering teachers must involve not only graduating students who can think, but also, just as importantly, developing students who can quickly function effectively in the job market.
