Fraud & Plagiarism

Stress, lack of time, a missed lecture. None of these constitute reasons to ‘stretch the rules’ and you should not be tempted to do so. You are in an academic environment where you are being educated to become an engineer with an independent mind. This includes developing an academic attitude, which involves learning to trust your own critical faculties and being assessed on your own performance. Fraud and academic misconduct, whether committed deliberately or unknowingly, do not belong in this context.
