I highly recommend Borgnakke. Took 535. His textbook (though it cost me a bomb) was really helpful. He teaches the basic concepts well. His homeworks aren't exactly easy but he is generous with grading. Has a sense of humor but not many get this. Starts class late and also ends late. I think his classes are purposefully on Wed and Fri so that he can have his finals at his discretion but if you can't make it he is willing to accommodate you on a different time. Did not have fixed office hours but catch him after class and he'd be willing to see that your questions are cleared. Very helpful outside class too. Also did an independent research with him and enjoyed working under him.

If you get a chance to meet and talk with him, it'll make you a better engineer, trust me.
