NMIT Code of Ethical Conduct for Research

To ensure students, researchers, research supervisors and NMIT research activities meet accepted ethical standards.  The Research and Ethics Committee (R&EC) was established to ensure research, teaching and assessment activities undertaken by staff and students of NMIT are consistent with Section 161 of the Education Act 1989. This Section guarantees the freedom of academic staff to engage in research and to teach and assess students in the manner which they consider best to promote learning. However, it also requires that institutions maintain the highest ethical standards and permit public scrutiny of the maintenance of those standards.
