To be frank, Dr Daoud is a nice, enthusiastic, and quite professional professor. But then, the grade is indeed relative unsatisfactory. Yet, I have to declare that one of my assignments was handed-in late, which was denied acceptance by Dr Daoud, which is a major reason for my relatively low grade.

Back to the course, the lectures were really boring and involved with LOTS OF MATHS!!!!!! There is always a question to ask you calculate the energy amount of the power plant, etc, e.g. how much kwh for a coal power plant, etc. But Dr Daoud is really helpful and willing to ans you with questions raised on the assignment.

There were 3 assignments and 1 quiz on the field trip. Each assignment was given 2 weeks for you to work on, the questions were very difficult and involved lots of Maths. Strangely, all of the assignments had an average score of over 95%, which made it EXTREMELY HARD to get an A range in this course. I personally scored 89% in all of the assignments and got a B. My fd scored 89% as well, but with better class participation, scored a B+. A gpmate scored almost 95% and secured an A-. You can tell the competition is cut-throat. But, at least the course assessment is transparent.

The report is quite complex, which asks you to write 10 pages of report, around 3500 words, to explain the feasibility of developing innovative energy technology in HK. But, it was okay for us. So, I am not going to discuss it in-depth.

The course is really fine, but it is really boring and the competition for grade is CUT-THROAT. And, once you submit the assignments late, you would really not be given an opportunity to hand it back. So, this is what you should be cautious at. But at least Dr. Daoud and the TAs are nice [but quite strict]. So, the course is fine.

There're 3 assignments, 2 quizzes and 1 group project. Assignments are required to hand in two weeks later; quizzes one week later. Group project are required to conduct presentation and report hand-in in the last two to three weeks.

For the individual assignments, I consulted the lecturer and teaching assistants (TA) every time "IN PERSON" for the comments on my answers for every coursework, while the marks are given by TA, except the group project to be given collectively with unanimity of the lecturer and TA. Overall mark of all individual works is 90%, each shared 10% equally to the total mark of the course. It counts for attendance which contributes 10% of the total mark.

For the remaining 40% group project, I am so lucky that I got wonderful groupmates, and I just took up the easiest conclusion part. I subsequently asked the comments from TA for the presentation, which no error was found in my part of the presentation.

By the way, time management and control is very important in the presentation, so as the page count in the final report. Lecturer and TAs are always here to help you, so do consult them "IN PERSON" and by email before the hand-in or presentation of any coursework.

(Actually, before I decided to take this course, I have viewed all comments in this website before-head with the aim to get A range, I just followed what the previous comments said. In addition, I am interested in the aspect of environmental-friendliness and those sort of things :)

One thing I need to mention, Dr Daoud is so friendly and helpful, and I am thankful for his support throughout the course, so as the TA!)

呢科伏到喊!d assignment 每兩個禮拜交一次,many assignments! A bit difficult to get high marks! D人又拉到個mean 勁高。
個presentation 問既問題又超深入,個time limit又唔夠長,好難講咁詳細
自問都好認真做,個grade 竟然咁

想拿好grade一定要自己努力.
評分主要分Assignment同group project
Assignment要自己努力過, 不懂 ,可以send email問TA,
group project 盡力分好工, 要定時間表, presentation 要準備,約出來練
Canvas system 有得check grade, 我自己3份assignment+2份test 各過90%+group project 拿最高分果組.

On the first lesson, I thought I chose the wrong course. But in the end, it is not that bad. As a business student without any science background, I find this course not as difficult as I imagined.

This course mainly talks about different kinds of energy, about their technical concepts, pros & cons and other things related to ENERGY. There will be some physics and calculation, but they are still manageable.

We were given 3+2 individual assignments and 1 group project + presentation. For the individual assignments, 3 of them are normal assignments that cover the topics that the lecturer taught in the class. Another 2 are open-ended quizzes, including a field trip report and a fuel mix proposal. You can do all of them at home, means that you can seek help from experts!

For the group project, we are required to suggest a type of new energy for Hong Kong. We have to do research on the concept, cost, feasibility and drawbacks of the energy. It is strong suggested to finish the report as early as possible to avoid any problems. I am lucky to have great group mates.

The overall experience is not bad, it's just the class is boring sometimes. But as long as you put in effort, I think it is not too difficult to get an A range.

唔算好grade,亦唔算爛grade
今年mean得3.04, median 3.00
至於工作量睇你點睇
有三份assignment ,每份三至四題
好似考試ge essay type question咁
P.S. 有數計 (e.g. Energy 單位轉換,用左幾多energy,計半衰期,wind energy...)
Quiz有兩個,每個quiz都係一題 but take home
感覺assignment程度相差幾大
Assignment1 好General,似LS吹水,但assignment2,3真係黎料...
Quiz1 field trip report抄field trip 拎的小冊子
Quiz2 就吹能源架構(HK)
有group project, 自訂topic, 佔幾多下
感覺比預期ge grade有小小出入, 總括B range易拎,但a range要project impress到marker加individual 冇失手( each 90%up)

小測雖佔兩成分,比例不多,但等於兩份家課之分數。
倘表現不好,會拖低三次家課之分數。故此,務必溫書、複習,以應付小測。
不才建議文科同學先行閱讀數期 科學雜誌、並收看數集探索頻道的紀實節目,以獲得一定知識。
至於小組報告,總佔四成,程度頗深,能輕易取得乙等。欲取得甲等者,必先苦心志,勞筋骨,餓體膚,方能登上甲等之列。整體而然,小組報告影響力頗大,不容忽視。
上堂輕鬆,部分同學各有各做,顯然很不尊重李博士。幸而,李博士寬宏大量,哪怕面對粗口橫非的同學,仍可保持一貫笑容。

3份功課 全部short quest+計數
唔識可以consult Patrick
1份end-term quiz
個人覺得今次程度中等 有用心機溫哂全部應該會識
project就一組15min present+10頁左右既report (5-6人一組 分好工其實幾hea)

3份功課我都接近滿分
如果quiz無炒應該上到a range 所以quiz一定要溫!!!

Patrick 係我喺 city 遇過最最最最好嘅 professor
好有heart教書, 好好人
但呢科教d 野對非 science 黎講會有d 難
但只要你肯去問 Patrick 都會好願意答你教你

呢個呀 sir 超好人 每次assignment 肯去 consult 既話佢都好有耐心去教. 冇 phy chem 底既人可能要花多少少時間去讀呢科 但只要肯問 會學到唔少野既=]
個 quiz 要溫書=]

Patrick 好有心教書,但呢科需要有phy chem 底,我係純文科人,拎到呢個grade 好好彩!
呢科學到好多平時接觸唔到既能源知識,值得一讀!

極之輕鬆
講書好悶,所以無咩點聽書,上堂做自己野
ASSIGNMENTS 返到去睇NOTES 都會識做
但當然有上堂聽下既話,ASSIGNMENTS 就唔使點花時間做
但係因為數學AND PHY 又不太厲害 ,所以成日做錯數
不過正常人無做錯,都可以拎A既
重點一提 PRESENT 極HEA

Patrick 係幾好人,但係佢太好人,成日答晒人地問佢既問題,我問呢又無時間答......

Test 幾難,我無讀過phy同chem 覺得好難,可能我能力低掛....

我諗點都要有人爛grade同墊底既...
