Academic Honesty
UF Honor Code
All students admitted to the University of Florida
have signed a statement of academic honesty
committing themselves to be honest in all
academic work and understanding that failure to
comply with this commitment will result in
disciplinary action. This statement is a reminder
to uphold your obligation as a UF student and to
be honest in all work submitted and exams taken
in this course and all others.
15
ECE
Academic Honesty
• Do not copy and paste for credit
• If results from others are used, clearly state so
and give credit in the reference section.
• Never cite verbatim. Reformulate in your own
words and give credit in the reference section.
• If in doubt, ask your class professor what is
allowed.
16
ECE
Joint Degree programs
• MSEE/MS in Management (theoretical
part of MBA)
• MSEE/JD (Law)
• Benefits: Requires fewer credits combined
than taken separately, ease of scheduling.
