NEW MEXICO JUNIOR COLLEGE
|A.||Course Title:||Material Science|
|B.||Course Number:||ENGT 223D - 10742|
|K.||Time Zone:||Mountain Time|
3 Credit Hours This course will introduce students to properties of materials used in most energy related industries along with the importance of material selection to safety, reliability, and the environment.
This course will meet the requirements of the Energy Technology Degree at New Mexico Junior College; however, it is important to check with the institution to which you are planning to transfer to determine transferability. All students are encouraged to keep the course syllabus, as it will help determine the transferability of this course credit to another institution

Students attending New Mexico Junior College will be evaluated according to the following grading scale:
90 - 100% = A 80 - 89% = B 70 - 79% = C 60 - 69% = D 0 - 59% = F
Credit will not be given for assignments turned in late without prior approval.
Each of the course modules are taken directly from the DOE handbooks available for download from the MODULES tab in Canvas. For maximum effectiveness, you should read each of the chapters prior to viewing/performing the electronic courses.
All quizzes and the final exam will be based mainly on your reading. These assessments will consist of multiple choice, true/false, complete the statement, and short essay style questions. The quizzes will be 50% essay questions in total, but will not be evenly distributed on each quiz. The final exam will have short essay questions only. ALL quizzes will have at least lockdown browser, and the final exam will require use of the camera.
Your grade is determined as follows:
10 % - Discussions
30% - Assignments
30% - Research Paper
30% - Final Exam
*No final grade will be given without completing ALL assignments.
*A grade of 0 points will be assigned to all late submissions not previously approved by me.

My virtual office hours are:
Please feel free to email me via Canvas at any time. It is likely the fastest way to get in touch with me. DO NOT POST OR REPLY TO AN ANNOUNCEMENT, I AM NOT NOTIFIED WHEN YOU DO! Please use my cell number on the home page to text me if you need more immediate help or if I have not responded to your Canvas message within 24 hours. I may be able to help, even if it is outside of my virtual office hours. Later this term, I have a new baby at home and would rather call you back risk disturbing mama and the baby!
In any case, I will respond to requests for help as quickly as possible.

Each student is expected to maintain the highest standards of honesty and integrity in online academic and professional matters. The College reserves the right to take disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal, against any student who is found guilty of academic dishonesty or otherwise fails to meet these standards. Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, dishonesty in quizzes, tests, or assignments; claiming credit for work not done or done by others; and nondisclosure or misrepresentation in filling out applications or other College records. Cheating or gaining illegal information for any type of graded work is considered dishonest and will be dealt with accordingly.

The professor is responsible for monitoring and evaluating student conduct and student behavior within the Canvas course. By registering for this class, the student is assumed to have entered into an agreement with New Mexico Junior College and the professor to log into the class regularly and to behave in an appropriate manner at all times. Disruptive behavior may result in the student being removed from the class and dropped for the semester. For comprehensive information on the common rules of netiquette and other online issues, please review the NMJC Online Student Handbook.
Online Learning Environment
By participating in an online class, you undertake responsibility for your own progress and time management.
Offering the work of another as one’s own, without proper acknowledgment, is plagiarism; therefore, any student who fails to give credit for quotations or essentially identical expression of material taken from books, encyclopedias, magazines and other reference works, or from the themes, reports, or other writings of a fellow student, is guilty of plagiarism. Plagiarism violates the academic honesty policy and is considered cheating.
Free tutoring services are available to all NMJC students through Brainfuse and the Academic Success Center located in Mansur Hall room 123 and 124.
The instructor has the right to drop any student who has failed to log on to Canvas for two weeks or more, but it is not guaranteed that the instructor will drop you. If the student chooses to stop attending a class, he/she should withdraw from the class by accessing your student account in the T-Bird Web Portal at www.nmjc.edu, or submitting the required paperwork to the Registrar’s Office by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 19, 2018. Failure to withdraw yourself from a course by this date may result in your receiving an “F” in the course. All students are encouraged to discuss their class status with the professor prior to withdrawing from the class.
