A NOTE ON ETHICAL CONDUCT
behave ethically; the safety of the public depends on not only on the competence, but also
on the honesty and integrity of engineering professionals. Engineers may, at times, come under strong pressures to
act unethically, and the results can be tragic. At a university, one important ethical requirement is thatlhe work
upon which you are graded be your own, and not someone else's. Students are cautioned against any type of
unethical conduct, including copying during exams, presentation of false documentation for medical excuses, or use
of stand-ins on exams and quizzes.
Storage offactual information on handheld calculators, for use in closed-book
exams, is also expressly forbidden.
We have no sense of humor whatsoever about cheating
