Statement of Mission
To continuously define the profession by producing Welding Technology and Welding Engineering Technology graduates whose knowledge, skills, and attitudes are nationally recognized.
Prepared By: Kenneth A. Kuk
Academic integrity and honesty: Are basic core values of the instructor. In carrying out its academic mission, the department, depends on the honesty and integrity of its faculty, staff, and students, and for this reason every member of the Welding Engineering Technology department is charged with upholding the principal of academic integrity and honesty. Actions that breach the academic integrity and honesty erode the trust of those who look to instructor and/or the department for honest evaluations of academic work arrived at through honest processes. Violations may also cause individual harm in that reports of performance made to graduate schools, professional societies, and employers would inaccurately represent a studentís progress. The instructor is committed to creating an academic environment that values both individual and collaborative efforts that promote learning. The instructor expects honesty and integrity in the work of all students in the course. Students are encouraged to learn together but to complete their own work unless specifically instructed otherwise. When you sign your name to any assignment you are responsible for its content and development. Academic misconduct will be forwarded to the department and/or Judicial Services for formal review.

∑ Attend all lectures and laboratories as scheduled and be on time
∑ Be respectful of the instructor and classmates at all times
∑ Be respectful of religious, ethnic, and gender differences
∑ Use language and actions that are appropriate for a professional setting
∑ Do not be disruptive to the instructional process including talking at inappropriate times, do not use computers or other equipment
and devices unless specifically instructed to do so
∑ Be well rested and attentive, take notes and make sketches as required, be engaged in the course
∑ Respond to direct questioning as required, do not interrupt the teaching process
∑ Be prepared to participate in all lecture and laboratory activities by completing assignments as directed, having required books,
calculators, supplies, tools, equipment, etc. as required
∑ Follow all safety rules and procedures
Failure to comply with the conduct guidelines outlined above will result in unexcused removal from the classroom or laboratory. Repeat violations may result in removal from the course.
ELECTRONIC DEVICES: Such as cellular telephones, pagers, CD, MP3, and Ipod players are not required and should not be brought to class. Their use, no matter how inconsequential, audible or inaudible causes a distraction to the teaching and learning process.
