Giving an early evaluation just because he's going to teach CE 251 for summer 2017. HIGHLY RECOMMEND- TAKE THIS PROFESSOR!!! For ENVE's who have yet to take CSC 231, CE 251 is a MUCH BETTER alternative, so much so that the new flowchart is going to implement CE 251 instead of CSC 231. Took CSC231 for a week before dropping it as a sophomore. There are weekly labs and reading you turn in, but they're not busywork and really do help you on the quizzes. He teaches you exactly what you will need to know for the quizzes, no vague bullshit. Usually lectures for the first hour, but honestly it goes by so fast, and the other hour, you work on the lab and he's helpful in answering any questions. Final is like 6-8 projects you work on with a group to turn in.

El Badawy was a great professor for ENVE 331. He understands that it is an intro course, and teaches only the basics (which is good if you are not super interested in the environmental side of engineering). And even if you are, he still covers enough to give you a good handle on the material for future. His homework and quizzes were very straight forward; it looked like most of the class was getting high A's. He is a very nice guy who wants everyone to do well. His accent is a little hard to understand at first, and he lectures and writes quite quickly. This was definitely the easiest 300 level class I have taken, while still learning a lot. Would recommend!

Amro is one of the nicest professors I've had. He really wants all of his students to do well and will always take the time to explain things that are at all unclear. I wasn't too excited about the class because I've never been too interested in the subject, but I ended up loving it. At first, Amro went a bit quickly and it was difficult to get used to his accent, but after a couple classes you definitely get the hang of his lecturing style. His quizzes are very fair and pretty easy. No midterms, just quizzes and a final, which ended up being great because the quizzes were a good way to review lecture material while getting easy points. Definitely would recommend!!

Dr. El Badawy is the sweetest and most straight forward teacher I have had at Cal Poly. He always gives a general overview of the topics he is going to cover at the start of every lecture and a brief recap on what was talked about during the previous lecture. If you miss class get notes from a friend because he doesn't have powerpoint notes or anything, but quiz questions are always straightforward and based off of topics covered in class. I took a nanotechnology course by him after having taking this class just because I knew it was him teaching it. He if very modest and respectful and is a great human being.

This guy is amazing and represents what a professor should be in every way. He was extremely well versed in the material, he recognizes if students are struggling, he gives fair exams and grades almost too fair. Take this guy for any class you can, you will learn a lot and most likely get a good grade.

Took him for Nanotechnology and it was really informative and interesting. it gets a lil dry just cause he's p soft spoken. There was no book/ hw. straight up lecture, but this class made me actually consider doing something with nano-tech in the future. He is one of the best professors I've had and one of the best CE/ ENVE professors. I take classes depending on if he's teaching it. His classes are not super difficult but you will feel like you learn so much more from him than other professors who just give a shitload of hw and bullshit. He sincerely wants you to learn and when you ask questions, he is simple and direct.
