Project I (including assignments)
Note: Make up for the projects will not be allowed under any circumstance. Students with valid excuses should fill in the “Student Excuse Form”, in the department. If the excuse form is approved, the student will be allowed to make up for the missed project along with the following exam (excluding final projects). If not, the student automatically receives an F grade. No Incomplete grades < I > will be given at the end of the semester, unless you have extenuating circumstances. There are no exceptions to this policy.
The grading system is divided on concept (creativity), research, sketches, design, execution and presentation. Students are allowed to correct their graded projects.
