The course covers different aspects of the processing of yarns to products (braided, knitted, woven, and their composites) and the interrelation between the production mechanics and structure, geometry and properties of fiber assembly. Topics in the field are assigned and each student is expected to thoroughly study the topics and write critical papers based on structured assignments and specific questions. Conduct projects from concept to fabric formation, analyses, and evaluation.

This course has been taught successfully six times as a special topics course. It now requires its own course number.

mlnosbis 1/8/2018:
1) Course description on CIM form should match that on the syllabus.
2) Student learning outcomes- 2 of them use the word "demonstrate," but outcomes should use more specific language to explain how students will demonstrate mastery of the content. See the Learning Outcomes Guidelines handout attached under additional documentation. Update both the CIM form and syllabus to match.
3) Syllabus notes:
- Provide more information for the written assignments. Length of each short assignment?
- Provide tentative dates for assignment due dates to illustrate the course progression, instead of TBD for all dates.
- Provide office hours for the instructor
- What is the course content or reading material for the course? Is it Moodle articles, texts, etc.?
- Provide course schedule to illustrate course progression (by weeks)
- See Graduate Course Syllabus Checklist attached under Additional Documentation, and make sure to include all components.

cohen 1/18/2018:
The course length is 16 weeks with week 16 reserved for the final. Please modify the Topical Outline as appropriate.

ABGS Reviewer Comments 10/29/2018:
-"Additional assignments will be required for a missed class (or showing late or leaving early) regardless of the reason of absence." I did not think an instructor could require additional assignments for excused absences? Are these assignments equivalent to what was covered in class? What is the nature of the additional assignments?
mlnosbis (Mon, 10 Sep 2018 12:53:07 GMT): Rollback: Please address all comments listed in the Additional Comments section before approving.
aseyam (Thu, 18 Oct 2018 08:07:53 GMT): All comments have been addressed and the syllabus has been updated to the newest format.
smichie (Thu, 01 Nov 2018 18:28:03 GMT): ABGS reviewer comments of 10/29/2018 has been addressed: "Additional written assignments will be required for a missed class (missing 15 or more minutes of class) regardless of the reason of absence. These assignments will take the form of a paper similar to the assignments described below, but covering the material presented in the missed class. The final grade will be reduced by 1% per absence for not complying with this rule."
