num one:

no cell phones in class! if you must have it, turn it off or put it in silent mode.
if your phone rings in the class, this might affect the valuable 10% of your marks assigned for attendance/class performance

num two:

‘zero tolerance’ towards plagiarism – copying from websites, your friends/classmates IS NOT allowed –  if you must cheat, bear in mind that you are getting a ‘zero’ grade – applies to both kinds of people – those who show their work to friends/classmates and those who copy.

note, however that you can read from websites, discuss with your friends, but while making your report, it has to be your OWN language/ WRITING.

num three:

you cannot call on my cell phone to ask if a theory/lab class will happen or not. all theory/lab classes will happen unless told otherwise. if, for some reason, a class is cancelled, it will be posted on this webpage, so keep an eye here and on the facebook groups: and

num four:

preferred form of contact is by email ( for all purposes. second preference: SMS. call me when it is absolutely necessary to do so (if i am in a meeting or in a class, i will not be picking up your phone call)

num five:
assignment submissions only in class (AND NOT in my room/desk!!)

you can sleep in class if you want to (not recommended though), but you cannot snore!
however, if you decide to stay awake, do not make unnecessary noise please.

:: attention ete 415 students, if you have been struggling downloading the documents through google/ google scholar, here are direct links to the papers: 1) MacDonald, V.H. , “the cellular concept”, the bell systems technical journal, volume 58, No.1, pp.15-43, January 1979 –
2) Young, W. R. ,”advanced mobile phone service:introduction,background, and objectives” ,bell systems technical journal, volume 58, pp. 1-14, January 1979 – — best of luck with assignment 1 and class test 1
