2 Introduction Instructor Students Course Asst. Prof. Dr. A. Türker KutayBSc, METU, Aeronautical Engineering, 1996MSc, METU, Aeronautical Engineering, 1999PhD, Georgia Tech, Aerospace Engineering, 2005StudentsMETU Aerospace Engineering StudentsIn top 10,000 among over more than 1 million peopleCourseAE172: Introduction Aircraft PerformanceWe learn how the aircrafts fly!
3 Teaching PhilosophyI will present the materials in a way that is easiest to understand for MYSELFEverybody has a different way of learningStudent participation is very importantMajority of learning takes place outside the classroomAlways look for ways to better understand the materialsShare your knowledge with the classYou cannot lose knowledge by sharing it. You can only gain more!
