  1. Course Policies

    Each student is expected to attend all of the scheduled classes. If a student has more than 6 unexcused absences, then he/she will get grade E automatically.

    Punctuality is a must. Student who arrives late more than 5 minutes from the schedule is not allowed to enter the class.

    Student ethics is important (see point no.12). During evaluation (e.g quizzes, exams, individual projects, and individual assignments) you are expected to comply with professional honesty. Any breach of integrity will be taken seriously and reported to the appropriate higher authority.

  1. Ethics of a Students as Community Member

    According to the Student Ethics at the Institut Teknologi Bandung chapter II first part article 3 that students of ITB must be able to manifest the spirit of upholding academic and professional honesty and integrity by restraining from dishonest and unfair acts in any form, both inside and outside of the campuses.
