Dr. Hamid Maghzian
Dr. Hamid Maghzian is an engineering Ph.D. graduate of the University of British Columbia with a diverse educational background in Civil/Structural engineering and Mechanical engineering.
During the past 5 years, Dr. Maghzian has taught courses in Mathematics, Engineering and Computer programming. His philosophy in teaching involves engaging students in class and providing ample practical examples as well as problem sets to demonstrate and achieve the learning objectives of the course.
In their future careers, the students would be facing new challenges, which they have not seen in any course before. Dr. Maghzian helps instill a problem solving skill in students so they can think critically when the time comes. Presenting thought-provoking problems in class and allowing students to work on them in groups has been an efficient technique to that end.
"One on one interaction with the students has been a central point of my teaching practice. Each student is unique, hence has a unique way of understanding. It is important for me to recognize their differences and be the guide along their unique journey towards understanding."
