Professor Carlos Fiorentino Reviews
Prof: Carlos Fiorentino / Fall 2020
Mar 28, 2021
This course was a blast! I had a lot of fun with the projects, and Professor Fiorentino was extremely kind and knowledgeable. This course is a fundamentals course though, so definitely be prepared for simpler projects (though simple doesn't always equal easy). The projects might seem a bit tedious or unengaging at times, but again, you're there to learn the basics, so do your best to remain engaged and committed, and you'll do well in the course!
Best advice I can give is to accept the critiques of your professor, even if they aren't things you necessarily agree with 100%. I've seen students receive grades they didn't want simply because they had come to a design disagreement with the professor, and had decided against following their advice. If you truly disagree with your professor, I recommend engaging with them over email and discussing your work together, because their initial critique may change if you defend your position well. However, also acknowledge that many of these profs are industry professionals, and know what good design looks like. Most are going to want the best possible outcome for you, so always be ready to receive feedback, good or bad. Hope that helps!
