The dean of engineering is very amusing person , really, funny but with fatherhood type character. Some interestinf acts from the dean

1. Patroling the boards of the faculty members and remove postings that he doesnt like , he was busted once LOL

2. Keep saying i know what everyone in the colelge does, i swear he knows nothing

3. Interfere even with every little thing in the college even in the uniform of the people working for other ocmpanies

4. Throw the ball on anyone if he is trapped

But personally i like him :)

A selected number of professors in our department teach only one course per semester, because they claim to be busy with the work at their administrative positions in our college (and sometimes other colleges). The strange thing is that the same exact professors are getting involved with dozens of assignments outside the university.

For example, one of the busy professors is:
- Heading a work team at one of the goverment agencies
- Heading another team at one of the social work agencies
- Teaching part time at on of the private colleges
- On the board of one of the private schools.

But the poor soul has no time to teach two courses at his department.

Master plan to become a distinguished lecturer at our college:

1- Choose 200 level courses
2- Carefully pick up the perfect T.A. for the class
3- Give a lot of A's with no discussion

Perfect T.A. Assigments:
1- Prepares the quizzes and grades them
2- Prepares the homeworks and grades them
3- Prepares the projects and grades them
4- Offers private tutoring to the students in your course.
5- handles you office hours
6- covers for you in the lectures when you are away doing outside work
7- prepares your exams with the Ideal solution and grades them
8- Prepares the final exam (and posts some of the questions on your website) and grades it.
9- Finally, and the most important part is that he prepares your ABET report for the course.

I hope that would work fine with you guys.

Master plan for preparing for your promotion:

1- Remember that the last thing you want to waste your time on is research
2- Try to get some visiting professor (preferable foreigner) in your field to do your research. Remember to promise him/her with summer teaching or consulatations that pay big time.
3- Look for a professor from one of the islamic countries with intentions of working in Kuwait. Promise him a position and let him work on your research.
4- The easiest way is to pressure one of the foreign professors in your department to publish his work under your name.
5- Sleep well and your promotion would be feasible within a couple of years.

You gave the best recipe in the college, unforotunately, some poor professors can not afford to be influential enough to get all these "GOODIES"

How about a master plan to be a minister in the college? once you are a professor you have nothing to do exccept to wait for prime minister to call you to be a minister. Am I right?

or a Master plant to start a consultation company and let oneof your employee to teach instead of you...

Am open for all suggestions?

I would recommend that the Dean should open a new center in our college headed by a virtual professor and leave it open for the future favors.
