Write formal and informal engineering reports
Work as a part of a team
Lab reports are based on machine dynamics theories studied in class, or presented during lab sessions. Each group of students is responsible for submitting its own lab report in its own words. A student cannot add its name to a student lab copy if absent. Labs will be submitted either in formal or informal presentation. All informal labs must be presented with three full paragraphs, theory used, results obtained, and a thorough discussion. A special attention will be dedicated to the presentation. A formal template lab report will be handed out to the students. Students are encouraged to use the computer lab to finish their lab and submit it during the lab session.
Lab reports must be turned in on the due date, at the beginning of class. Once lab class starts, lab reports will be still accepted for a grace period of 48 hours and graded 80% of the full grade. Once the grace period is over, no lab report will be accepted. THERE IS NO MAKE-UP for any lab session missed.
Lab Sessions Attendance
Students are expected to attend lab sessions on regular basis and are responsible for class notes, and missed exams while being absent.
Academic Integrity Policy
Scholastic dishonesty will not be tolerated and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent. You are expected to have read and understood the current issue of the student handbook regarding student responsibilities & rights, and the intellectual property policy information about procedures and what constitutes acceptable on-campus behavior. Any form of plagiarism will not be accepted, and will be heavily reprimanded.
