General Information

Code of Conduct

In our modules, and in line with the Regulations Governing General Study and Examination Procedures (AllgStuPO) we strive to follow the same codes that regulate and ensure good academic practice as defined by the Statute on the Safeguarding of Good Academic Practice at TU Berlin.

This means that the assessment of module deliverables will pay special attention to the adherence to good academic practice. Good academic practice is defined as 

„ensuring the integrity of their activities, their honesty towards themselves and others, and their working, in particular,

  1. in accordance with the state of the art (lege artis) of their discipline,
  2. documenting processes and results in a transparent and appropriate manner,
  3. retention of primary data,
  4. adequately assessing and incorporating the contributions of partners, supervisees and competitors in publications,
  5. and respecting the intellectual property of third parties

(Technische Universität Berlin (2017, March 8) Statute on the Safeguarding of Good Academic Practice at TU Berlin, https://www.tu-berlin.de/menue/about_the_tu_berlin/laws_directives_guidelines/statute_on_the_safeguarding_of_good_academic_practice_at_tu_berlin/parameter/en/#c804339)

In the context of our modules, points 2 and 5 are of particular relevance.

Students enrolled in our modules are thus required to ensure that they don’t incur in any behaviour that results in an unfair advantage for themselves. In particular, we want to highlight the relevance of ensuring the respect for the intellectual property of third parties in the context of written assignments. This means that students have to make sure that they acknowledge their sources in all instances,in which they use intellectual material produced by another person. Examples for this are:

  • Verbatim copies of whole passages from works authored by other persons in written assignments and presentations without properly referencing the source
  • Claiming ownership of views, opinions, or insights from other without acknowledgement
  • Paraphrasing of another person’s work without proper referencing

The penalties imposed for cases of academic misconduct are laid down accordingly in the Regulations Governing General Study and Examination Procedures (AllgStuPO). Students are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with this document.
