Plagiarism Policy of The Department of Mechanical Engineering
Plagiarism is not tolerated in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
It shall be punished according to the student conduct code of the
University. Integrity and honesty are essential to maintain society's trust
in the engineering profession. This policy is intended to reinforce these
values.

I. You commit plagiarism if you submit as your own work:

    i. Part or all of a written or spoken assignment copied from another
      person's manuscript, notes or any other media such as computer
      files or the web.

    ii. Part or all of an assignment copied or paraphrased from a source,
      such as a book, magazine, pamphlet, web, or web posting.

    iii. The sequence of ideas, arrangement of material, pattern or
      thought of someone else - even though you express them in your
      own words. Plagiarism occurs when such a sequence of ideas is
      transferred from a source to a paper without the process of
      digestion, integration, and reorganization in the writer's mind and
      without acknowledgement in the paper.

II. You are an accomplice in plagiarism and equally guilty if you:

    i. Allow your paper, in preliminary outline or finished form, to be
      copied and submitted as the work of another.

    ii. Prepare an assignment for another student and allow it to be
       submitted as his or her work.

    iii. Keep or contribute to a file of papers or speeches with the clear
       intent that these papers or speeches be copied and submitted as
       the work of anyone other than the author. (The student who knows
       that his or her paper is being copied is presumed to consent to its
       being copied.)


Plagiarism is not tolerated in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
