Taught IDSC 3103 - Data Modeling and Databases during the spring semester (SRT score - 5.5/6) Some reviews: "Sandeep has great knowledge on the topic and does a very effective job of communicating the practical uses of SQL to the student. In addition, Sandeep deeply cares about his students and the topic he teaches. That shows by how open he is to work with students one on one to get them to understand the topic." "One of the best instructors I've ever had. No fluff, every word out of his mouth was relevant and applicable. He also gave us access to external tools for optional additional practice. No busywork, no attendance grade, and assignments that both reflect the content and are difficult enough to study for."
