Honor Code

The Honor Code holds that students are honorable, trustworthy people and encourages them to behave with integrity in all phases of university life.  Accusations of honor code violations are investigated by the Engineering Honor Council, and if wrongdoing is found, a recommendation is sent to the Faculty Committee on Discipline.

Scholastic Standing Committee

This committee studies problems related to and defines criteria for, scholastic performance. In addition, the Committee reviews all petitions within the College, including the Petition for Reinstatement, the Petition for Late Drop, the Petition for Exception to College Rules, and the Petition for Retroactive Term Withdrawal.

Special Committees

The work of several ad hoc committees is central to the goal of providing an undergraduate educational experience that is among the finest in the world. 

Online Academic Integrity

In June 2020, Joanna Millunchick (Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education) charged a committee to examine issues related to academic integrity in the new remote teaching context.  The committee developed a report and recommendations and on September 29, 2020 a Town Hall was held for Michigan Engineering faculty and staff to hear about the recommendations from the committee and learn about different approaches to the topic, with specific emphasis on online exams.  Below are links to materials and resources from the Town Hall.

CoE Course Scheduling-Room Optimization Project
This project will evaluate, investigate, and recommend a course scheduling system that will optimize the use of existing CoE classroom resources, and identify the criteria that should be used.

Math Curriculum Review Committee
The purpose of the committee was to determine what math concepts and methods are necessary for the twenty-first century engineer. The committee was asked explicitly to ignore current math curricula and textbooks to focus exclusively on the needs of engineering curricula. The committee considered the following questions:
  • Which math concepts are required across all departments within the CoE?
  • Which math concepts are only relevant to a subset of departments?
  • How should CoE math curricula be structured to meet the needs of all CoE students without unnecessary fragmentation?
  • How can contemporary computational methods be incorporated into math pedagogy, and what are the implications of doing so?
Educational Experience Commission

The Commission was charged with providing recommendations to assist in strategic planning and impactful decision-making in expanding the student educational experience, specifically:

  • Consider the idea of requiring all College of Engineering students to participate in beyond-the-degree educational experiences.
  • Consider the concept of establishing a college-wide “Grand Challenge” theme year.
  • Examine academic innovation in the College, including new pedagogical methods and tools for the delivery of engineering education.
Engineering 100 Review Committee

The Committee was charged with providing recommendations for goals, content, evaluation, and structure for the ENGR 100 course.  Recommendations focused on the following:

  • Course Goals: Review appropriateness, relevance and achievement appropriateness of Design-Build-Test cycle and consider if this should be a goal for all sections; and, possible development of ENGR 100 equivalent course for transfer students.
  • Course Content: Review appropriate levels of engineering content, technical elements, communication elements, professional development elements, inclusion of College of Engineering Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion objectives, and sequencing of ENGR 100/101.
  • Course Evaluation: Review evaluation process, quality of individual sections and exemplars within, and courses needing to be restructured or retired.
  • Course Structure: Review structure appropriateness, functionality of co-teaching teams, frequency, activities, pedagogical approach, class size, number of credits, and resources provided.
Leadership Advisory Board Strategic Education Initiatives Subcommittee
The University of Michigan College of Engineering Dean’s Leadership Advisory Board serves the Dean of Engineering to provide strategic insight, guidance and assistance in the pursuit of the College of Engineering’s vision and mission.  Currently, the Strategic Education Initiatives subcommittee is reviewing and providing recommendations on the following:
  • Co-curricular programming covering student experiences beyond academic technical disciplines.
  • Alumni perspectives and engagement.
  • Professional, continuing, and executive engineering education, and life-long education programs.
