CHME Common Syllabus Addendum

This addendum applies to every course with a CHME prefix.  It contains information applicable to each course offered in CHME.

CHME Announcements

As a member of the NMSU Chemical Engineering Community, you are responsible for the content in Announcements posted to the CHME website.  To assure you receive important announcements that can impact your program of studies, subscribe to the appropriate NMSU Chemical Engineering listserv(s) immediately.

CHME students must also register with their NMSU email address to receive the CHME e-Newsletter, which is used by the department to communicate important information.

Attendance Policy

Attendance is required for all scheduled CHME lectures and/or laboratories.  Advance notice and approval is required of all non-emergency absences.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

Student Outcomes

The Department of Chemical & Materials Engineering strives to achieve defined student outcomes through the administration of the BSCHE curriculum.  These outcomes are achieved in the curriculum as mapped in the following sortable table.  Typing the course number in the search box will filter the table to show only those outcomes that will be measured in a particular course.

Student Accessibility Services (disability accommodations)

Academic Misconduct


Cell Phone Use

Use of cell phones and wi-fi enabled devices are prohibited during examinations or when the instructor deems necessary or appropriate.


Re-grades may be requested within 1 week of the return of a graded assignment.  To request a regrade, students must attach a memo to the original assignment indicating why a re-grade is sought and provide the written request to the professor.  The entire document will be re-graded.


Students are expected to use The Engineering Communication Manual (Oxford University Press, 2017) by Richard House, et al. as the standard for communications in the department.  This includes every form of communication, from design reports to email, as well as oral presentations.

Students starting their degree program Fall 2016 or after may continue to use A Guide to Writing as an Engineer (Beer & McMurrey, Wiley).

Video surveillance

New Mexico State University has equipped lecture halls, laboratories, study areas, hallways, and computer laboratories with videotaping equipment and computer monitoring software.  Consent to such forms of surveillance is intrinsic to enrollment in courses with a CHME prefix.  This includes, but is not limited to video taping of lectures, examinations, and remote viewing of your university-provided computer screen by an exam proctor.

Computer Resources

The department strives to maintain appropriate computer hardware and software resources available for students to use.  Please report all software or hardware problems with the computers located in ECIII 301 to  Please report knowledge of vandalism or abuse of these resources to


All course participants are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner in all discussions, postings, and activities.  It is acceptable to disagree with someone else’s opinions, and to challenge and debate them with research, citations, and/or personal experiences.  This is appropriate for learning and is encouraged.  However, personal attacks (e.g., references to the other person’s intelligence, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender, age, etc.) will not be tolerated.  Also, discussions must not unnecessarily disrupt the course, interfere with instruction, or prevent others from learning.
