Teaching Philosophy Statement


After being a student for
over 2 decades

and a teacher for about 8 years, I developed a
picture

of what I consider as my “teaching philosophy statement”.


Teaching for me is a chance to pass the knowledge that I have gained to students and
enhance my own as well.
It feels wonderful when

the students understand how to
deploy the engineering concepts
to real life applications
; I believe this is achieved

by
introducing various related examples.


I understand that students put more effort when they are inspired by the teacher;
therefore I look forward to motivating my students by providing the required
k
nowledge, guidance and help to solve challenging problems relying on their own
skills. In turn, the student’s self
-
confidence will be elevated. My teaching philosophy
includes assigning short and more frequent homework to keep a continuous follow up
status

with the progress of the course. I also believe that a reliable textbook and well
prepared class notes are the perfect tools for a student to perform better and have a
strong source to rely on for future needs.


Moreover, I believe respect is an essentia
l factor in the classroom. An instructor
should treat his students the same way that he/she would like to be treated. I have
seen that students tend to dislike the class when professors embarrass or individually
address them.


Through my experience as a

teacher I learned how knowledge can always be acquired
even
during teaching, a sign that a person never stops learning as long as he
/she

lives.






















Research Statement


I have done several research works in the areas of Mechatronics, System
Identification, classical and fuzzy control, Parameter Estimation of Unmanned Aerial
Vehicles, sensor calibration and utilization, visual servo control, and Inertial
Measurement Units.

In my PhD dissertation I introduced an in
-
flight method to
estimate the parameters of a UAV’s dynamics model; I also introduced and verified a
low
-
cost IMU that is capable of measuring the angular acceleration information.


In the future I intend to cont
inue researching in the UAV field. Moreover, I would
like to start different Mechanical/Mechatronics based research studied that can be
beneficial to the human life.
