This addendum applies to every course with a CHME prefix. It contains information applicable to each course offered in CHME.
As a member of the NMSU Chemical Engineering Community, you are responsible for the content in Announcements posted to the CHME website.
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)
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.
Cell Phone Use
Use of cell phones and wi-fi enabled devices are prohibited during examinations or when the instructor deems necessary or appropriate. Devices must be turned OFF and not in the student’s possession during exams.
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).
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Please report knowledge of vandalism or abuse of these resources to email@example.com.
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.
