The main problem most students have with him is he's never around. If you have a class with him, it's pretty common for the TA's to be teaching most lectures, since he's off at some conference for a month somewhere, or something along those lines. What's worse is, the TAs are usually just as lost as the students, as they aren't really given much information on what they're supposed to be teaching.
My personal problem with Wassyng is he literally tries to hide from conflict and hopes it just works itself out. For my capstone project, I couldn't get my group to do anything to the point where I went to him and asked him what to do. He told me to write an email detailing what everyone had done so far to him, and that he'd arrange a meeting.
I did that; no response for a week and he wasn't around, so I emailed him again asking if he got my email. Nothing for another week; I go talk to him the first day he's back from where ever he was, and he says "oh ya, I got your emails, I'm actually on my way back to my office to schedule something now". I wait another few days without anything, then finally go to his office and tell him we're dealing with this shit now. He finally calls my group in and they openly admit that they haven't done anything (this was March by the way). His solution is, "oh, well, just reduce your requirements and do the core components instead".
Of course, that doesn't do anything and I still end up doing most of the project myself. On the demo day, we do our presentation (my group mates making up shit since they didn't know what was going on) and I leave it at that. On the way out, he says "see? Look what you guys accomplished when you all pulled together!" with a dumbass smirk.
Seriously, fuck that guy.
