The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering expects that students will respect and maintain
the high ethical standards that govern all phases of research and graduate studies.
The dissertation is not only a representation of a student’s hard work, it is also a reflection on the adviser,
the department, the Graduate School, and the University of Minnesota.
I encourage you to read the University of Minnesota Web page about Expectations for Graduate Students in
Research, Scholarship, and Professional Ethics Education: Professional Ethics and Responsible Research Conduct
I also encourage you to read:
