1 Spring 2010 AE172: Introduction to Aircraft Performance Asst. Prof. Dr. Ali Türker Kutay Middle East Technical University Department of Aerospace Engineering
Dr. Ali Türker Kutay2 Introduction Instructor Asst. Prof. Dr. A. Türker Kutay BSc, METU, Aeronautical Engineering, 1996 MSc, METU, Aeronautical Engineering, 1999 PhD, Georgia Tech, Aerospace Engineering, 2005 Students METU Aerospace Engineering Students In top 10,000 among over more than 1 million people Course AE172: Introduction Aircraft Performance We learn how the aircrafts fly!
Dr. Ali Türker Kutay3 Teaching Philosophy I will present the materials in a way that is easiest to understand for MYSELF Everybody has a different way of learning Student participation is very important Majority of learning takes place outside the classroom Always look for ways to better understand the materials Share your knowledge with the class You cannot lose knowledge by sharing it. You can only gain more!
