Welcome to Introduction to Engineering! I’m Professor Sokka, but you guys can just call me Sokka. I’m really excited to start teaching you guys about the cool fundamentals of engineering and to be one of your first professors at this university.
I have attached the syllabus to this email and the Canvas site should be up and running soon, so please check those out as soon as possible so you’re aware of all the due dates and exam dates.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me or come to my office hours.

Samantha: paul has volunteered to be tribute
Samantha: paul we love you
I hope you are doing well. I am Paul Kach, a student in your ENGR 6A class, section 9245. I, along with multiple other students in the class, were not aware that the first homework assignment was due tonight. To help us all be able to start college and the class on the right foot, could you please extend the deadline this one time?
Thank you so much for your time.

Weekly Engineering Department Newsletter
Monday, August 24th
Firstly, congratulations on starting this new semester and new year. I hope that this year is productive both in regards to stimulating the young minds of our students and your own personal research.
Secondly, I wanted to thank you all for being so patient with us as we figure out the issue of offices. Walberg Hall has been closed for remodeling causing there to not be enough office space for each faculty member this year. Unfortunately, admin did not inform us of this early enough for us to be able to come up with alternative plans. We have been forced to share with the literature department for at least the semester. You should have received an email with more information if this change impacted you. Again, thank you so much for all of your cooperation and patience.
There will be Donuts with Professors again.. [read more]
