"When I’m teaching, I’m not just there to get the job done. I’m passionate about engineering and my research."
Dr Omid Yeganeh teaches on the undergraduate Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering programmes which are part of the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering at City. The School has excellent placement opportunities for students because of its well-established links with industry - students have been able to take placements at City since 1903.
Omid studied for his Bachelor of Engineering at Sharif University of Technology and for his MSc at University of Calgary, before being awarded his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Queen's University.
According to Omid
"When I’m teaching, I’m not just there to get the job done. I’m passionate about engineering and my research.
“For me, teaching isn’t just about telling students the facts. The course I teach isn’t easy, in fact it’s very demanding and in order to pass students have to work really hard. My role as a teacher is to push them, to support them and to make sure they finish the course with strong, well-rounded knowledge. When I’m teaching, I’m not just there to get the job done. I’m passionate about engineering and my research. I care about what our students are learning and what they go on to do after City. That’s why it’s important to me that they push themselves, my colleagues and I make this happen through the way we teach.”
