    those to the class. The product will be discussed between the instructor and the group.

    2. Class Project and Presentation: Class will complete answers to a package of questions and discuss

    those analyses and control approaches with the instructor.

    H. Attendance Policy

    Course Attendance at First Class Meeting – Policy for Graduate Students: For structured courses, 6000 and above, the College/Campus Dean will set the first-day class attendance requirement.
