TA for “Introduction to Sustainable Engineering”

Introduction to Sustainable Engineering: ECS 400/600 (3 credits)

Teaching Assistant for Fall 2011, 2013 and 2014

Syllabi (produced by Cliff Davidson): 2011, 2013 and 2014


I have served as a teaching assistant for this course three semesters while at Syracuse University. The course is taught by my advisor, Dr. Cliff Davidson. It is a graduate level course, though several senior engineering students received special permission to take the class as well. There are generally 30-40 students enrolled in this course, and there is only one TA. The class meets twice a week for 80 minute lectures. My primary responsibilities have included holding office hours twice weekly, grading homework and exams, and keeping track of grades and progress in the course. I also lecture three to four times during each semester.
