Computers continue to shape our modern world.

In a rapidly changing field of computer engineering, learning can be both challenging and exciting. My teaching is aimed at training the next generation of electrical and computer engineers for a demanding and an ever changing work place. Inspiring students’ creativity and promoting students’ engagement in the learning process are key elements to successful teaching in engineering. As a teacher, I strive to inculcate in my students the significance of updating their skills with rapid technological changes, and also understand how their work impacts the world we live in. I believe that problem solving skills and creativity combined with ethical thinking play an important role in producing great engineers of tomorrow.
