Too much slack. He let us choose the grading weights, exam dates, etc. Lack of concern for the topic (data structures). I was forewarned when I saw his brief "syllabus" (only a few sentences). Encouraged questions, but either answered vaguely or got upset. I could never tell if he’s joking or …more serious. First time teaching 362, he can only improve. less

The class was not structured at all, and he had no idea as to what he was doing. I passed but it was a grueling experience. Beware of taking classes with this teacher!

Gavriil seems like a cool guy, but he is much more interested in his research than students. He was very unprepared throughout the class, deciding in class what our assignments would be. Harsh grader but must have curved dramatically because I expected a D and received a B. Worst professor of my …more undergrad. Expect great stress in his class(es). less

Shows up to 2 classes all semester, requires a capstone to be research nothing applied is allowed. Sends his grad students to grade presentations with no idea of what to present. Assignments only have a title, never a description. wtf does it mean to write a paper titled "results for motivation". …more No length requirements given less

It was clear from the first day that Dr. Tsechpenakis did NOT want to be there. He is a nice guy when you talk to him directly but the persona he presents to the class as a whole is at best "uncaring" and at worst "above all of this". If you don't have an idea for a research project the first …more day, you're already behind. less

I really enjoyed this class. Yes it was difficult, but if you put in work, you'll get invaluable skills from this class. Gavril is a really cool guy and knows his stuff. I like that he asks for class feedback on things like test dates and how many projects do we prefer. I would take his class again …more for sure. He wants the students to learn above all less

Very laidback, allows free discussion on grading policy which was appreciated. Projects were difficult, but not impossible. The first three chapters were very confusing, but after that the material gets a lot easier. Left way too many lectures up to the TA who was very difficult to understand, …more don't bother showing up to TA lectures. less

You probably want to be familiar with Matlab before taking this course. It is pretty easy overall, but there are a few assignments which are really difficult

Best professor ever. Very sharp and knowledgable. Very helpful. He will go out of his way to help you if you have passion for image processing. He is laid back and his teaching technique is hands off but if you ask doubts he will definitely not shy from helping out.

Curve heavy. His slides aren't great, but they're ok. He isn't terrible at explaining and you can tell he thinks he's better than you just by the way he holds himself. However, he genuinely wants you to learn and pass the class. The assignments aren't THAT hard but do take work. I feel like there …more are better prof. out there, but also much worse. less
