Student Learning Outcomes
Students completing this course successfully will be able to:
Grades are based upon student performance on assignments, quizzes, and projects, as well as upon student participation in required activities, such as study labs and a variety of outside of class experiences designed to show students more about the engineering profession. Each assessment tool is weighed as follows:
50% Exams & Quizzes
5% Lesson Evaluation
10% Study Lab Participation [See Study Lab Policy]
5% Out of Class Experiences [See OCE Policy]
Note: Graded material will not be kept longer than one semester after the course is completed.
Letter grades are assigned according to the following scale:
A 90% – 100%
B 80% – 89%
C 70% – 79%

Class attendance is mandatory unless excused by the instructor. The basis for an excused absence will follow University policy. Students who are absent from class for any reason are responsible for all missed work. Students who miss a quiz or an exam will not be permitted to make it up, except in the case of a documented family or other legitimate emergency. Any exception will be allowed at the sole discretion of the instructor.
Days of Special Concern
WVU recognizes the diversity of its students and the needs of those who wish to be absent from class to participate in Days of Special Concern, which are listed in the Schedule of Courses. Students should notify their instructors by the end of the second week of classes or prior to the first Day of Special Concern, whichever is earlier, regarding Day of Special Concern observances that will affect their attendance. Further, students must abide by the attendance policy of their instructors as stated on their syllabi. Faculty will make reasonable accommodation for tests or field trips that a student misses as a result of observing a Day of Special Concern
Since you are all professionals in training, you are expected to conduct yourself in a professional manner while in this class. For instance, while the class is in progress, everyone is expected to remove their hats and sunglasses, put away the newspaper, refrain from eating and drinking, and turn off cell phones. Please do not force the instructor to remind you that you should behave in a professional manner.
This code of conduct also applies to any out of class experiences you choose to attend. Remember, guest lecturers have taken time out of their schedules to come and speak at WVU. As a representative of the College of Engineering you are expected to treat these guest lecturers with the respect due them, and remember one of these lecturers could end up your future boss. Be sure to act accordingly.
The integrity of the classes offered by any academic institution solidifies the foundation of its mission and cannot be sacrificed to expediency, ignorance, or blatant fraud. Therefore, I will enforce rigorous standards of academic integrity in all aspects and assignments of this course. For the detailed policy of West Virginia University regarding the definitions of acts considered to fall under academic dishonesty and possible ensuing sanctions, please see the Student Conduct Code at http://www.arc.wvu.edu/rightsc.html. Should you have any questions about possibly improper research citations or references, or any other activity that may be interpreted as an attempt at academic dishonesty, please see me before the assignment is due to discuss the matter.
WVU Statement of Social Justice
West Virginia University is committed to social justice. Our University does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age, disability, veteran status, religion, sexual orientation, color or national origin.
