Computer laboratory work associated with the course will include the application of advanced continuum and discontinuum codes to slope modelling. A geotechnical project will be undertaken involving will collection and interpretation of field data for assessment of mountain hazards, their assessment and mitigation. The course will be assessed based on written computer laboratory reports, summaries of the literature consulted through scheduled seminars and satsifactory participation in field work aas ssessed thorugh a project presenatation/report.

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://students.sfu.ca/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
