Change Course Proposal
FW 488 PROBLEM SOLVING IN FW SCIENCE

Status: Draft

Proposal

Proposal ID: 102005
Type: Change Course
Effective Term: Spring 2018
Justification:
As a consequence of our ongoing program review, we have modified our capstone courses from a two-course sequence (488, 489) to one course (488). We’ve also added a sophomore-level course on communication (FW289) that serves to meet the communication requirement for our degree.

The course description is now modified to reflect these changes.
