Amit Bhasin, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering

UT Austin

I believe that engineering education is not just about learning how to solve specific problems related to a discipline; it is about learning a way of thinking. My teaching philosophy is to recognize and build upon students' past experiences as I teach them new concepts and conventions. More importantly, I strive to use my subject matter as a medium to help students develop the ability to define and solve engineering problems. This is a timeless skill that will prepare future professionals to meet the growing and changing needs of the society.
