ENGI 216 - Syllabus

In this course you will apply principles learned in previous engineering science courses
to solve problems of analysis and synthesis of machinery design. The emphasis is on
studying the motion of machines.

Machines and Mechanisms; Applied Kinematic Analysis 1st edition, By David H.
Myszka, Prentice-Hall, 1999

Active participation in this course by students is required and expected. Attendance for
all lectures is strongly advised. Any student whose performance/attendance is
unsatisfactory or not up to date will be notified by the college and may be dropped from
the course for insufficient progress or participation.

If you have a documented disability and would like to request accommodation
and/or academic adjustment, contact the Disability Services Office at (732) 224
2730 or TTY (732) 842 4211.

The course consists of a three hour lecture per week. Homework will be assigned
during each class and the explanations or solutions will be given at the beginning of the
next class. Students are expected to do the homework after class. Homework may or
may not be collected. Homework may or may not be graded.

Class participation, quizzes and the final examination will evaluate student progress.

There will be three mid semester exams and a final exam. The final exam will count for
50% of the final grade.

In the case of hardship or emergency, a grade of incomplete may be granted by your
instructor. In order to be considered for the grade INC, the student must have
satisfactorily completed all assignments except the final project, have a passing
average, and must meet with the instructor prior to the last class meeting to
discuss this option. Your instructor is under no obligation to grant a INC. In the even
that you are granted an INC, it must be completed by the second week of the following
semester or an earlier date specified by your instructor.

               Academic integrity is submitting one's own work, and properly
               acknowledging the work of others. Any violation of this principle
               constitutes academic dishonesty and is liable to result in disciplinary
               action. Forms of academic dishonesty include:

                 Submitting another person's work, in whole or part, as one's own. This
                 includes an examination, a computer program, a laboratory report, or a
                 written assignment.

                 Facilitating Academic Dishonesty
                 Helping another commit an act of dishonesty, such as substituting for
                 an examination or completing an assignment for someone else.

                 Using or attempting to use unauthorized materials on an examination
                 or assignment, such as using unauthorized texts or notes or improperly
                 obtaining, or attempting to obtain, copies of an examination or answers
                 to an examination.

                 Illegal System Access
                 Altering, transmitting, or permitting unauthorized individuals access to
                 your account, or an attempt to alter or destroy system files on any
                 server or computer. This also includes altering, transmitting, or
                 attempting to alter or transmit academic information or records by
                 unauthorized individuals.
      Students that participate in dishonest activities
             will receive a 0 for that project, examination, or assignment
             may be given a grade of F for the course
             may be reported to the Dean for disciplinary action

      For additional information, refer to the current Brookdale Community College Student Handbook.
