“Sean is always willing to talk with students about whatever questions they have regarding their classes, even if they’re unrelated to the specific classes that he teaches. He’s honest, bright, understanding, and overall a fantastic professor. I’ve made an effort to take every class with him that I could.”
“Professor Sloan is one of he most engaging lecturers I have had the pleasure of being a student of. He explains complex topics using real world personal experience and is always willing to participate in an enlightening discussion about any topic of interest to the student. Prof. Sloan cares about student projects and to my knowledge is the adviser for at least two clubs. I can think of no professor who better exemplifies this institution’s goals.”
“He stands out […] as a compassionate man, a passionate professor, and a true joy to take classes with. He presents material in such a way that even complex concepts are easily digestible and can be applied during exams, labs, and outside of class when solving real-world problems. He has a philosophy of teaching concepts rather than equations, which fosters a classroom environment of exploring any and all applications to solve complex problems with simple, sequential methods that build on past lessons.
“[He] is the best professor I have ever had. He truly cares about students and their success and is willing to do whatever he can to make sure we become engineers worthy of being engineers. He consistently comes up with educational lab, club, and project ideas that are intriguing and 100% relevant to our coursework and future jobs. He nurtures environments where boring subjects become interesting, useful, and applicable. He continually educates himself as well so he can stay up-to-date with what is happening in engineering industry.”
“Professor Sloan loves his students and his job. He is always willing to help people out, even if he isn't currently teaching them in a class. He's an incredible teacher and person. Professor Sloan is the reason I switched to mechanical engineering, and without him my life would be headed in a very different direction. I am so thankful for him, his values, and his personality.”
