"One thing that was appreciated were the words Dr. Nasab chose when responding to questions, affirming students. Difficult to explain, but he had a higher level of care and interpersonal skills than most people or professors. Overall, impressive course. Dr. Nasab works extremely hard and his efforts did not go unseen."
"This class was my favorite class this semester by far!! Everything that Dr. Nasab taught was very valuable, and he makes his classes so much fun because you can see how much he cares about the subject. I would not ask for anything different!"
"The teaching method was great and effective and the instructor explains things clearly and encourages questions."
"Dr. Nasab explained the goals he had in mind for the course at the beginning and end of the course, in which he defiantly achieved. I thoroughly enjoy the way he teaches with the slides and examples."
"Dr. Nasab does a great job with going through material and an example in class as well as having a homework problem similar to what we are doing in class. I really like having one homework per night to feel like I can keep learning and continue to understand what is going on in class."
"I can tell he cares a lot about his teaching philosophy and how to go about material, and it pays off. I always enjoy having him as my professor."
"Dr. Nasab is an excellent teacher and one that I consider to be the very best out of the Civil Professors. His superior organizational skills and devotion to learning makes classes easy to follow. Dr. Nasab is not afraid to challenge his students to learn, and students who put the effort in to engage with the material excel in the class. Dr. Nasab is adaptable and tenacious in teaching, and I count myself lucky to have him as a professor. I thought the class was organized very well. I liked the setup of exams where it was both in person and take home."
"This has surprisingly been the best engineering class I have taken at St. Thomas. Not because the material is easy, it is not, but the way the class has been structured and relates to my daily environment is incredible. This class has also given me an idea of what career path I will pursue, design engineering or hydrology. Being able to use all the software that are used in the workforce in the classroom gave me an edge in the internship I was taking at the same time. Not just one software, several resources with videos on how to use were posted on Canvas for our own good and use. Collaboration with Mississippi Watershed Management Organization gave us an idea of what our role is in the natural environment and how responsibility falls on us as Engineers. Also, providing a solution to a real-life problem with them made the class even more realistic which was incredible to say the least."
