In the classroom, Dr. Gould teaches MAE 201 Engineering Thermodynamics I, MAE 501 Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics and MAE 310 Heat Transfer Fundamentals. Thermodynamics is essentially two subjects in one: 1st and 2nd law analyses, and the thermodynamic properties of materials. His approach in these classes is to use a systematic approach to solving these problems and to emphasize the two aspects of these problems, overcoming confusion and providing greater depth to the subject. His approach in MAE 310 is to focus in class on solving practical problems. For example, the problem of finding the critical (optimal) thickness of insulation is interesting in that the solution depends on the competing effects of reduced resistance due to convection and the increased resistance due to conduction.

As a research adviser, Dr. Gould usually meets with his students weekly. His students are self-motivated and interested in contributing to society through the engineering of systems and processes that improve efficiencies and conserve our energy resources.

Outside of work, Dr. Gould enjoys riding bicycles and motorcycles, watching football and soccer, working on home improvement projects and participating in church and mission activities.
