Some courses I have taught over the years. Find the course grading table here.

If you are interested in MS project or MS thesis, follow this.

Academic honesty:
You are encouraged to discuss assigned problems with other people but you must individually design and write your own solutions / code for all assignments. Furthermore, you should explicitly acknowledge any sources of ideas used that are not your own; this includes other people, books, web pages, etc. Submitting modified versions of other people's work as your own is considered cheating. 
All assignments are individual unless otherwise stated!!!
