Engineering Academic and Professional Integrity

Our values – a message from the Dean:

I am proud to be dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. Every day, we educate future engineers – those who will be responsible for “the protection of the public and the environment and the benefit of society” (Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan, Value Proposition). As such, we have a duty to adhere to the highest standards of academic and professional integrity.  All of us – students and faculty alike – must abide by the Code of Ethics of Professional Engineers, which requires engineers to “conduct themselves in an honourable and ethical manner, upholding the values of truth, honesty and trustworthiness.”

I am so encouraged by our students who are engaged, working with Faculty leadership to ensure academic integrity.  The Regina Engineering Student Society, for example, has formed an Academic Integrity Committee and introduced an Honour Pin Ceremony during which students pledge to uphold academic integrity.  Thank you to all students who demonstrate outstanding commitment to your studies and your future careers.

Academic integrity is a bridge to professional ethics, as demonstrated by the following video produced by Duke Media Services – Duke University: The Bridge to Professional Ethics.

The University and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science has taken, and will continue to take, concrete measures to address academic misconduct, including even tighter controls when administering exams, providing additional invigilators, and delivering an Invigilator Training Workshop for teaching assistants. 

The Faculty will not tolerate any infractions of academic integrity. That’s why we have created this web page – to help inform faculty, students and staff about academic integrity and to provide readily available resources.

Thank you for your continued commitment to academic integrity and the values of truth, honesty and trustworthiness.
