Spring 2019 Exam Schedule

All exams will be open book, open notes. It is highly recommended that each student develops a formula sheet in advance for use during the exam. This is generally helpful when studying and tends to reduce dramatically the amount of time used for looking up information during the exam. It is acceptable to use simple handheld scientific calculators during exams, provided they are not capable of wireless or infrared communication. However, smart phones, tablets and laptops are not allowed.

Final Review


Academic Integrity: I believe that upholding academic integrity and abiding by ethical principles are fundamental to the practice and profession of electrical and computer engineering. In fact, the IEEE, the world’s largest professional society with more than 425,000 members, abides by the IEEE Code of Ethics, in part: “We, the members of the IEEE, in recognition of the importance of our technologies in affecting the quality of life throughout the world, and in accepting a personal obligation to our profession, its members and the communities we serve, do hereby commit ourselves to the highest ethical and professional conduct and agree ..” Please see the complete IEEE Code of Ethics online at


It is my belief that following ethical principles in this class is fundamental to your future contributions to society as electrical and computer engineers. This course, ECE 548, will adhere to the Academic Integrity Policy of the Colorado State University General Catalog and the Student Conduct Code, which states, “Any student or student organization found to have committed or to have attempted to commit the following misconduct is subject to disciplinary sanction.” A full list of what is considered misconduct is available at


Specifically in ECE 548, academic integrity will be taken very seriously, and violations will be dealt with harshly. On homeworks and design projects, you are free to discuss the work from others and learn in a group setting. However, you are representing the work you turn in as your own. Therefore, you are required to write all homework answers and design project reports yourself. Academic penalties are decided on a case-by-case basis, and the typical penalty for cheating on a midterm or final exam is a failing grade for the course. To promote academic integrity, you will be asked to write out the CSU Student Honor Pledge on the last page of your ECE 548 midterm and final exams: “I have not given, received or used any unauthorized assistance on this exam,” and sign your name to give your promise of and commitment to academic integrity. The history and use of the CSU Student Honor Pledge is described on the TILT Academic Integrity web page at
