Institute values its reputation for moral leadership as much as its reputation for academic excellence, and expects all
persons associated with it to maintain the reputation. The institute's Code
of Ethics is simple and direct: Rose-Hulman expects its students to be responsible adults
and to behave at all times with honor and integrity. All students are
expected to abide by this code and to aid its enforcement by reporting
violations of it.
meets three times a week and students are expected to attend every lecture. Missing more than three lectures without a valid
excuse (i.e. doctor's note) results in failing the course.
meets once a week and missing any experiment also results in failing the
course. Students are expected to be present at the beginning of the lab
period and late arrival impacts the lab grade.
daily homework problems are due at the beginning of the next lecture. Homeworks should be done according to the format in the
GUIDELINES AND STANDARDS FOR WRITING
ASSIGNMENTS. Solutions to the problems are placed in the library after
assignments are graded. Late
homework assignments are not accepted. Copying homework is a violation
of the institution HONOR CODE.
one-hour exams and a final exam are scheduled for this course. Exams are
closed-book. You are allowed to have one sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper for
formulas during each hourly exam, and three sheets of formulas during the
experiments and three computer projects are scheduled for the ECE 370. Each
team is required to document each experiment/computer project in a report.
Reports are submitted to the instructor at the end of each lab session.
of lab reports is a two-step process. First, they are judged for
acceptability. If a report is deemed unacceptable it is returned to the student
with an immediate deduction of 20%. An additional 10% is deducted for each
additional day required to produce an acceptable report (weekends
included). Second step in the grading process is to evaluate quality and
accuracy of the report.
