Assistant Professor (FTC)
Department of Mechanical Engineering
My area of interest is computer assisted manufacturing and thermodynamic. I had taught engineering students for 10 years in Bangalore and Andhra Pradesh. I believe that it is my duty as a teacher to make students understand ‘how to learn the subject matter’ and not merely to deliver the class material. I avoid ‘spoon feeding’ the knowledge, but try to motivate and guide the students to learn more. I also believe personal touch is essential for a healthy teacher – student relationship. With the diversity of our community reflecting in our classroom, it is also critical to identify ways to reach out to each individual. I conduct my class with a personable approach and put adequate emphasis on out-of-theclass interaction with students. I believe students must be treated with respect and the classroom must be free from undue tension and anxiety. Openness, honesty and ability to maintain trust are highly conductive to effective learning. I welcome feedback from students, which help me to organize my sequence of lectures. Particularly, for higher degree classes, I have found that, feedbacks from students about what knowledge they currently possess and problems they face with learning in the new system is essential to plan lecture material as students come with diverse level of back ground preparations.
