French Fries Engineer Analogy:

At a fast food joint, if someone asks the employee for a burger, fries and a coke, and they only get a burger and fries - the employee is fired. In this course, if a student doesn't turn in all of the written assignments, give both oral and written presentations, and take both exams - they fail.
