CIV ENG 70 (Fall 2014)

Comment: Sitar is very laid-back and cracks jokes in this class. However, there is A LOT to learn and memorize like the rock and mineral quiz and the early chapters done in the class. You will need to get on the top of your game from the start, otherwise you will keep going back waiting for time to catch up. This is true for pretty much every technical class. Also pay extra attention while doing structural geology as this is a top hit for exams. The course is do-able but can be dry and boring at times. The dim spot-lights in class can also put you to sleep.

Comment: This class made me love geology and helped me decide to do geoengineering! It's a great class, and Sitar is the professor in the Civil Engineering department most suited to teaching the class. His coverage of the "sustainability" part of this class is hilarious though (although probably not what it's supposed to be). 7 billion people in the world? Nope, not sustainable. The honest truth -- and he's a good judge with justification. I liked this, but some other people might be looking for more...

Comment: Very interesting and knowledgeable guy- but not easily approachable. Fair hw assignments. The GSI's did a great job of prepping us for the mineral and rock quiz. The field trip was really cool.

Comment: Great teacher. He knows his stuff and gives interesting real life examples. Test are multiple choice with a couple short answer questions. He's difficult to take notes from since he uses a PowerPoint that is full of pictures with no explainations.
