Peer & Student Evaluations
“Professor Czypinski was beyond prepared and dedicated to the course subject and its intent. His passion for the coursework transcends to us/ me as a student to the point at which doing the handson assignments were fun. We would learn in detail every aspect of each tool that we would use and it made me feel safe and supported. He was always available to explain or breakdown certain challenges met at the shop; enhancing the overall feeling of trust and confidence as a collaborative team. Teamwork makes the dream work. I was fortunate to have such great leader such as professor Czypinski.” – Anonymous Student, Fall 2017, TA 4540P-01
“This is the third course I have taken with Professor Czypinski, I would definitely take another one of his courses. He creates a friendly environment, engaging with his students. This class has a great amount of workload but it is all beneficial to the understanding of the subject and it is a fun experience. All the assignments and projects coincide with material we learned. Daniel Czypinski is a terrific professor!” – Anonymous Student, Fall 2017, TA 4540P-01
