Teaching


At the FENG, DCEN, I am teaching two courses namely;
1. Soil Mechanics (SMC5118)
2. Foundation Engineering (FEN5127)






1. Soil Mechanics (SMC5118)
Stage: Third
Classroom: F1H7
No. of Students: 29

2. Foundation Engineering (FEN5127)
Stage: Fourth
Classroom: F1H3
No. of Students: 31



My Philosophy in Teaching
My teaching philosophy incorporates two core beliefs: (1) effective communication between instructor and student is vital, and (2) learning in engineering is an iterative process of theoretical study and application. It is through these principles that I reach my teaching goal—to provide an environment that allows students to take initiative in their education, and in which every student, regardless of background, comes away with an understanding of core civil engineering concepts.
I believe that experiments reinforce a student’s learning and consolidate abstract principles. Experiments readily appeal to most students and open doors of enquiry that eventually lead not only to a true appreciation or verification of engineering models or a concept, but also realize their limitations. It is this belief that motivates me to create experiments and demonstrations in every course I teach. Through carefully designed laboratory experiments, I ensure that the students not only develop skills of observation but also the ability to critically assess their observations.
