The Bachelor of Engineering program at Memorial has undergone a redesign — the first changes to take place in the program in 30 years. The program has been revamped to emphasize areas that have particular relevance to Newfoundland and Labrador such as oil and gas, offshore, process industries, energy sector, advanced technology sector, with more team project work, and increased flexibility to take courses across engineering disciplines and from outside the Faculty of Engineering.
The Faculty of Medicine is trying a little preventative medicine on itself. Dr. Maria Goodridge has been appointed the faculty's first ombudsperson for a one-year trial period. In making the announcement, Dr. James Rourke, dean of Medicine, also circulated the faculty's policy on intimidation and harassment, which was recently approved at Faculty Council.
