The Department of Bioengineering endorses and abides by the academic integrity policies of the Swanson School of Engineering and the University of Pittsburgh:
        The integrity of the academic process requires fair and impartial evaluation on the part of faculty and honest academic conduct on the part of students. Students are expected to conduct themselves with a high level of responsibility in the fulfillment of their course of study. The faculty have a corresponding responsibility to make clear to students those standards by which the student will be evaluated and the resources permissible for use by students during their course of study. The educational process is perceived as a joint faculty-student enterprise that involves professional judgment by faculty and may involve, without penalty, reasoned exception by students to the data or views offered by faculty. Consistent with these considerations (and without limiting the scope and application in entirety to the academic programs of the University), faculty and students are directed to observe established guidelines on academic integrity.
        For more information, please refer to the University of Pittsburgh GUIDELINES ON ACADEMIC INTEGRITY.
