Academic Honesty Guidelines
"Academic honesty is essentially giving credit where credit is due. And not misrepresenting what you have done
and what work you have produced. When a piece of work is submitted by a student it is expected that all
unquoted and uncited ideas and text are original to the student. Uncited and unquoted text, diagrams, etc.,
which are not original to the student, and which the student presents as their own work is considered
- Department of Computer Science and
Engineering Academic Honesty Guidelines
For more information about Academic Honesty Guidelines, check the above link.
- When sending emails to the instructor or TA, please indicate "CSE 2031" in the subject line (e.g., "CSE 2031 - Lecture notes unreadable"), or they may be deleted by mistake as
spam. Include your name and student ID in the email.
- For questions related to course materials, it is best to
ask during lectures or office hours. Email is not a good way to explain course materials.
- Attend the lectures! The lecture notes give only outlines of the lectures. Details and additional information will be explained and discussed in class.
- Read the lecture notes and textbook before and again right after each lecture. Program and run the code segments in the textbook. Work on the posted lab exercises before coming to the scheduled lab sessions.
