My teaching philosophy has been shaped by the sum of my experiences Teaching as TA and Assistant Professor in Mansoura University and the belief that the objective of an engineering education is to develop broad based problem solving skills and to learn the facts, methods, basics, and other tools necessary to solve modern engineering problems. In my opinion, solving such problems requires that students have command of the fundamental content of their engineering courses, as well as advanced tools and an ability to effectively communicate with people of varying backgrounds, and the skills to know how to independently learn new things. My philosophy on how to best meet these goals consists of three parts: 1) the teaching method, 2) class assignments, and 3) assessment of effectiveness.
