Teaching Philosophy

Dr. Roy believes that students should have a clear understanding of the fundamentals while gradually building up to the advanced topics. In order to facilitate this process, he relies on simple real-world examples to explain “nature’s machinery” so that students can easily visualize the subjects and have fun learning. Dr. Roy adopts a multidisciplinary teaching approach in which he motivates students by mentioning the importance and prospects of cross-discipline learning in modern times as well as in the future. He encourages students to have interactive teaching sessions where they can actively think and participate in discussions for enhanced learning.
