I expected uni to be the pinnacle of the teaching profession but OMG it seriously is not! Universities assess themselves, no external bodies ensuring decent and proper teaching here. If you have a 'pal' assessing a lecturer or a rubbish teacher assessing a lecturer then how are they going to improve? Answer is, they are not - and they have not!
More memorable from some lectures are the funny anecdotes from the lecturers who put more enthusiasm into discussing their personal life than into teaching you what you need to know.
Rapidly racing you through the data with lectures that are too long (mind numbing) which effectively gives the lecturer more time off at the end of the semester whilst you spend days and days pawing over any books or you tube videos you can find in a desperate bid to fill the gap the lecturer has left. Some lecturers give too much information for what is required whilst others can't be a***d even putting together a 1,2,3,4 step guide on how to do the stuff they're supposed to be teaching.
Not all lecturers are like this and some are extremely helpful, however, due to the degree being an engineering degree, you need decent, consistent information for ALL modules, not just some of them. It's no good being awesome at fluid mechanics and thermodynamics if your maths and structural mechanics ensure you can't put a building up never mind stop it falling down.
Angry, frustrated beyond belief and waiting to fail due to certain modules being horrifically lacking!!!!!!!
