Office hours: meet in front of class after lecture or by appointment

Asking for recommendations and references.
We enjoy helping students after their completion of MAE3, but please organize recommendation requests to make them as easy to complete as possible and submit them at least 3 weeks before they are due. If you submit a LinkedIn connection request please add text to the request describing what class you took and your connection. Recommendations to graduate school typically require performing research in a lab for at least an upper division course.
