Elder Henry B. Eyring has encouraged us to make this the type of university where Christ would like to come.  He is also very interested in justifying the tithing money of faithful members of the church.  It is such a pleasure to work at this university with such great young men and women.  Please remember to adhere to the Honor Code and the Dress and Grooming Standards.

!!! Computer Policy
Computer accounts in the department are privileges to be used in conjunction with and in support of various classes and research projects.  Violation of university and department computer patron policy in any form will result in immediate suspension of your account(s) and may result in suspension from the University.  If an abuse involves violation of the honor code, you will be referred to the University Honor Code Office.

!!! Professionalism
Most of you are either seniors or graduate students and are getting ready to begin  career. I think it is important that you cultivate a habit of professionalism in your work, particularly homework. Homework will be graded down if sloppily done.

!!! Academic Honesty
Receiving help from others is sometimes a "gray" area in terms of what is and is not appropriate, so I would like to state a policy for this class. Working with others can be an efficient means of learning.  However, you are not to copy another's work.  Homework study groups should not be larger than 3 people, and each member should contribute to the problem solutions and submit his/her own write-up.  If we have an optimization assignment that is not a group assignment, you are to code your own model, interpret it, generate results from it and do your own write-up. For group projects, all students should contribute equally. As mentioned previously, you are not to refer to tests or homework assignments from previous semesters.

One aspect of ethics that has surfaced in this class is the use of some used textbooks that have the answers to all of the homework problems written in the margins or elsewhere in the book.  Use of such textbooks is a breach of ethics (you should know this already).  If you purchased such a textbook, please exchange it and tell the bookstore not to sell such books.  It is also a breach of ethics to write the answers to homework problems in the book for an open book, closed homework test.

!!! Ethics
Each student is responsible for learning the principles of engineering.  The faculty are committed to assist in this process through classes, assignments, and exams.  Unfortunately, due to time and other pressures, some students have made choices that were inappropriate and inconsistent with college expectations for that assignment or exam.  In some cases the honor code office has become involved.  To avoid these incidents, it is important that students consciously and continually think about what actions are ethical and appropriate for assignments and exams.

In many cases, the learning process is enhanced greatly by working in groups or consulting with others.  However, the guiding principle of honesty dictates that each student is personally accountable for their own work.  The table below lists the different types of assignments, along with expectations regarding joint work.
