CIVIL ENGINEERING

In the nineteenth century, Civil Engineering was defined as, "The art of directing the great sources and powers of nature...for the use and convenience of man". Still valid today, the definition indicates that civil engineers are involved in serving people by providing some of the essentials (e.g., water supplies, shelter and transportation) necessary for civilized life. The oldest of the engineering professions, Civil Engineering deals with the planning, design, and construction of such things as roads, railways, harbours, docks, tunnels, bridges, buildings, water supplies, hydroelectric power development, and sewage collection, treatment and disposal systems.

The programme provides a broad introduction to the scientific principles and engineering techniques necessary for an understanding of the fundamental problems tackled by civil engineers. It also permits students to choose in later terms between two options: environmental and municipal engineering, and construction and structural engineering.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING

The basic fundamentals of the discipline of Electrical Engineering are covered in a core curriculum which extends through to Term 4. Upon entering Term 5, students must choose either the standard Electrical Engineering option or the Computer and Communications Engineering option, whereupon they will spend a further two terms taking a core appropriate to their selected option. In recognition of the considerable diversity of careers available to electrical engineers, students are given latitude in the final two terms to choose from a wide range of electives in speciality areas appropriate to their option. Electives can be tailored to meet the needs of those who plan to go straight into industry as well as those who wish to join the increasing number of our graduates who are pursuing advanced degrees. Irrespective of their option or ultimate goals, all students are expected to carry out an individual project in their final term demonstrating their mastery of the discipline.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

Mechanical Engineering is a highly diversified discipline encompassing the design, manufacture, and utilization of mechanical and thermal energy systems for the service of society. This activity requires a thorough knowledge of materials, mathematics, and the physical sciences, and an ability to apply this knowledge to the synthesis of economical and socially acceptable solutions to engineering problems.

The Mechanical Programme provides students with a sufficiently general background to engage in the diverse activities of Mechanical Engineering. The judicious selection of elective courses in Terms 7 and 8 permits students who have identified specific areas of interest to direct their programmes accordingly. Electives may be chosen from those designated as Mechanical Engineering or, with approval, from courses offered by other disciplines within and outside engineering. Students can thereby tailor their programmes to meet career goals in areas such as research and development, industry, design, resource utilization, offshore development and ocean engineering.

NAVAL ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING

Naval architects conceive, design and construct ships, offshore structures and other floating equipment to survive and operate in a marine environment and to serve the needs of the ocean-going community. A naval architect is an engineer with the working knowledge of several disciplines and expertise in one of the basic areas of structural, hydrodynamical, or marine systems design. The role of naval architects now reaches beyond the confines of shipyards and design offices.

The Naval Architectural Engineering Programme is the only accredited undergraduate programme specifically in naval architecture in Canada. The programme is designed both to provide graduates for the traditional role in shipbuilding and to provide for highly qualified professionals who can work in related ocean industries such as marine services; offshore engineering; submersibles and other advanced marine vehicles. The undergraduate programme is also a thorough preparation for graduate studies, research and consulting in ocean engineering.

CONTINUING ENGINEERING EDUCATION

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science has a firm commitment to Continuing Engineering Education. A variety of seminars and short courses are offered in St. John's and in other centres so that practising engineers may participate in Continuing Engineering programmes aimed at maintaining and improving their competence.

FORESTRY

The art and science of forestry offers professional foresters the opportunity to address and to solve some of the most important technical, economic, and social challenges of our time. Built on the recognition that forests must be managed so as to meet our needs without jeopardizing the needs of future generations, modern forestry aims at the sustainable management of our forests for society as a whole. Modern forestry not only addresses economic concerns but also concerns about forest ecosystem degradation, aquatic environment, wildlife habitat, recreational usage, spiritual values, and the global environment.

The integrated Memorial University of Newfoundland - University of New Brunswick Forestry Programme is composed of a basic core that focuses on the management of the forest resource, plus a number of electives to allow students to pursue personal interests. A broad range of areas is covered in the core including the basic sciences, the forest ecosystem, measurement and analyses, forestry as a business, social aspects of forestry, and the design of management intervention. A graduate of the B.Sc.F. programme is an integrated resource manager.

BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING DEGREE PROGRAMME

NOTE: Students intending to undertake the Engineering programme should note that it is possible to enter Term A or Term 1 only in the Fall Semester (September of each year). Attention is also drawn to the admission regulations below.

The Bachelor of Engineering Degree at Memorial University is set up as a Co-operative Programme, under which regular full-time academic study is alternated with equal periods of full-time work in positions related to the student's future career.

PROGRAMME OF STUDY

It is possible for students to pursue studies in Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, or Naval Architectural Engineering.

The Engineering Programme consists of ten academic terms and six work terms. For historic reasons, the first two academic terms are designated A and B with the remaining eight being numbered one through eight. All students must complete a prescribed core of courses in the first four academic terms. Students choose their discipline specialization upon entering Term 3 (the fifth Academic Term). Some of the courses offered in Academic Terms 3 to 8 are taken by all students, others are offered in more than one discipline, but most technical courses in Academic Terms 3 to 8 are specific to the individual disciplines. Students should refer to the charts preceding this section for the detailed course requirements in each phase of their programme.

General Management of the work terms in the Co-operative Engineering Programme, is the responsibility of the Faculty Office of Co-operative Education. The Office, through its coordinators, is responsible for assisting potential employers to become involved in the programme, for the continual development of employment opportunities, for counselling of students, for monitoring them on their work assignments and for the evaluation of the work term.

It is clear that our society is becoming increasingly dependent on technology. This imposes the requirement that Professional Engineers not only be technically able but also be prepared to exercise social responsibility in the execution of their work. Course projects oriented toward professional practice, the work terms, the complementary studies component of the academic curriculum and a continuing emphasis on public and personal safety throughout the entire programme help to develop responsible attitudes. Moreover, the students learn to communicate effectively with their colleagues, other professionals and the rest of the community on issues extending beyond specialized technical matters.

The Complementary Studies component has been developed to make students aware of the function and responsibilities of the Professional Engineer in society and the impact that engineering in all its forms has on environmental, economic, social and cultural aspects of our society. This complements the technical expertise and communications skills developed and practised in all components of the programme. The Complementary component is the same for all disciplines.

There is an "Engineering Profession Seminar" which is a three hour seminar offered in the fall term to Term I students. Issues include, but are not limited to: professional practice, gender issues, bearing of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Newfoundland code of ethics on students' behaviour.

Public and personal safety concerns are developed in the student through a number of avenues. Special non credit seminars by the Office of Co-operative Education are given to the Term 2 students which introduce the student to the work environment and include discussion on occupational health and safety legislation. Safety concepts continue to be stressed throughout the curriculum in all disciplines, particularly in the design courses, and many students receive special safety training from their employers during the work terms.

A two week surveying field school (Engineering 470W) for prospective Civil engineering students, and Electrical Engineering workshop (Engineering 480W) for prospective Electrical Engineering students and a Mechanical/Naval Architectural Engineering workshop (Engineering 290W) for prospective Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architectural Engineering students are conducted on campus once during each calendar year. The surveying field school, the Electrical Engineering workshop and the Mechanical/Naval Architecture workshop are held concurrently in the period following the Winter Semester engineering examinations and prior to the commencement of the Spring Semester. The two workshops and the field school have common lectures which deal with public, personal and industrial safety, occupational health and safety legislation, quality issues and professional practice.

All students registering for the course Engineering 4702 - Engineering Surveying must have previously participated in the work of the field school or have been granted exemption from the field school by the Undergraduate Studies Committee of the Faculty. Satisfactory completion of the field school or acceptable equivalent experience, is a prerequisite to graduation for all Civil Engineering students.

All students who anticipate pursuing studies in Electrical Engineering should participate in the Electrical Engineering workshop or receive exemption from the workshop, granted by the Undergraduate Studies Committee of the Faculty. Satisfactory completion of the workshop is a prerequisite for graduation.

All students who anticipate pursuing studies in Mechanical and Naval Architectural Engineering should participate in 290W Mechanical/Naval Architectural Engineering Workshop or receive exemption from the workshop, granted by the Undergraduate Studies Committee of the Faculty. Satisfactory completion of the workshop is a prerequisite for graduation.

With the permission of the Office of Co-operative Education students may rearrange the starting or finishing dates of their work term in order to complete the surveying field school, the Electrical Engineering workshop or the Mechanical/Naval Architectural Engineering workshop and to have a one week vacation. It is anticipated that students will attend the surveying field school, the Electrical Engineering workshop or the Mechanical/Naval Architecture workshop either at the beginning of Work Term 1 or the end of Work Term 2.

The 'Software Applications Laboratory', Engineering 100W, is a non-credit (Pass/Fail) laboratory course which will be covered in the first six weeks of Term I. Students who demonstrate adequate knowledge of the software covered in the course will be exempt from this course.

By being exposed to the world of work, under supervision, during their academic careers, students are provided with a broader and richer preparation for life and work. The experience gained in the industrial and professional environment should give them maturity and breadth of understanding, so enabling them to define more clearly their educational and career interests and objectives. Much of the experience gained in this type of programme would not be available to students until after graduation in a conventional programme. This experience makes a significant contribution to their total education.

During work terms students are brought into direct contact with the engineering profession, exposed to actual practical problems, expected to assume ever increasing responsibility in employment as their education advances, and introduced to engineering projects and installations far beyond the scope of those which could be provided in the University. The experience should provide maturing prospective engineers with an early appreciation of the economic, social and personal aspects of Engineering through direct association with professionals in a technical environment.

Matching between students and employers is accomplished through a placement process which is the responsibility of the Co-operative Education Services Centre. Job notices are posted and students may apply for up to twelve interviews. Employers' representatives interview students, after which the employers rank students in order of preference.

Job offers are made to students based on employer rankings. Students are then placed to fit expressed preferences. The Faculty does not guarantee placement, but every effort is made to ensure that appropriate employment is made available. In the case of students who are required to withdraw from the programme, the Faculty has no responsibility for placement until they have been re-admitted to the programme.

Salaries paid to co-operative students are determined within the employer's own wage structure, and can be expected to increase as the student progresses through the programme and assumes more responsibility. However, students should not expect the income from work terms to make them completely self-supporting.

Students in the Co-operative Programme give permission to prospective employers, in the course of the interview process, to have access to their records, which contain their academic marks and their work term evaluations. After placement, students may not withdraw from a specific job situation unless prior permission is obtained from the Office of Co-operative Education.

The Co-operative Programme affords an excellent preparation for a career requiring such high standards of professional judgement.

Upon the successful completion of the undergraduate programme in Engineering as approved by the Faculty Council and Senate, candidates will be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Engineering.

ENGINEERING REGULATIONS

NOTE: A student may appeal against any decision of the Faculty as indicated below, and any Faculty regulation may be waived by Faculty Council or, on behalf of the Council, by the Appeal Committee or Undergraduate Studies Committee of the Faculty, as follows, provided that no General University Regulation is contravened by the waiver. Appeals, and applications from students for a waiver or other variance of the Engineering and Applied Science Regulations, must be submitted in writing to the Office of the Associate Dean (Undergraduate) for submission to the appropriate committee. Unless otherwise stated in the pertinent portion of the Regulations, the time limit for an application for the waiver or other variance, is as stated below in this Note.

(a) A waiver of an admission requirement may be granted by the Undergraduate Studies Committee upon recommendation by the Faculty Admissions Committee.

(b) Appeals against decisions of the Faculty Admissions Committee and appeals against promotion decisions of Faculty Council will be considered by the Faculty Appeal Committee. An appeal against promotion decisions of Faculty Council will normally only be considered upon presentation of evidence which has not been placed before Faculty Council. Any such appeal must be made within one month of the issue of the decision of the Admission Committee or within one month of the issue of results by the Registrar, as the case may be. When a student has requested a re-read of an examination paper which may affect an appeal that appeal must nevertheless be made within one month of the issue of the original results, and consideration of the appeal will be delayed until the result of the re-read is available.

(c) A request for exemption from a course or courses required in the Engineering programme, the substitution of a course by another course, or any other variation of the requirements of the academic terms, will be considered by the Faculty Undergraduate Studies Committee upon recommendation by the Associate Dean (Undergraduate) in an application concerning Core courses, or upon recommendation by the relevant Discipline Chair concerning all other courses. Any such request must be received at least one week before the last day to add courses in the semester in question.

(d) A request for exemption from a work term, and for any other variation in the requirements for the work terms, will be considered by the Faculty Undergraduate Studies Committee, upon recommendation by the Office of Co-operative Education.

Any such request must be received before or on the last day to drop courses without academic prejudice in the semester in question. Only when the circumstances which may justify a variance in the requirements occur unavoidably after this drop date, will a later application be entertained, at the discretion of the Committee.

An appeal against a decision by the Faculty Appeal Committee or by the Faculty Undergraduate Studies Committee of the Faculty should be directed to the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Studies.

ADMISSION MODES

Direct Entry: Students may apply for direct entry into first year Engineering when they apply to the University from high school. Direct admission from high school is normally based upon the student being admitted to the University and having sufficient prerequisites in Mathematics and the Physical Sciences to be able to complete First Year Engineering courses in their first year of University.

Fast Track: Exceptionally well prepared students may apply for direct entry into second year Engineering (Term 1) from high school. Direct admission into second year is normally based upon a student being admitted to the University, having advanced placement equivalent to University credit in Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry and having an admission average of at least 80% in the final year of high school.

Entry from within the University: students registered in other programmes within, or other campuses of, the University may apply for entry into second year Engineering (Term 1). Such entry is normally based upon the same criteria as promotion from first year Engineering into second year (see section 5) under Examinations and Promotions, except that a second course chosen from one of the departments listed in section 5.c under Examinations and Promotions may be substituted for Engineering 1000; students will be required to make up Engineering 1000 in Term 1.

Bridge Programme in Naval Architectural Engineering: Graduates from the Naval Architecture Programme or Marine Systems Design Programme at the Marine Institute will be admitted to Term 4 in the Naval Architectural Engineering Programme in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science after finishing a bridging programme consisting of two academic terms: the Fall and the Winter.

To be admitted to the bridging programme, students should have completed a diploma in Naval Architecture or Marine Systems Design from the Marine Institute with a cumulative average of at least 75%.

Other Entry: students are occasionally admitted to later terms in Engineering from other institutions. Such entry is normally based on a detailed analysis of the student's record and is handled on a case by case basis.

ADMISSIONS

1) All complete applications for admission or re-admission to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science must be submitted to the Registrar's Office. A complete application includes an application to Engineering, an application to the University (for those who have not registered for courses in Memorial University in either of the two preceding semesters) and supporting documentation (when necessary). Application forms are available at the Registrar's Office and the General Office of the Faculty of Engineering. Applications to Term A or Term 1 should be submitted no later than March 1st of the year in which admission is sought. The Faculty Admissions Committee will begin reviewing applications after this date.

NOTE: Students intending to register for courses at this University or at another institution during the summer months who are considering entry into Engineering must still apply by March 1st.

Applications for all subsequent terms should be submitted at least two months prior to the commencement of that term. Any application received after the relevant deadline will be considered as time and space permit.

Attention is also drawn to the subsequent admission regulations and to the fact that re-admission to the University does not necessarily constitute admission to Engineering.

2) Admission to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science is on the basis of a competition for a limited number of places. The primary criterion used in reaching decisions on applications for admission is the Admission Committee's judgement of the likelihood of an applicant succeeding in the programme.

Success in the programme depends on meeting the requirements of both academic and work terms. The Admissions Committee will assess the likelihood of an applicant being able to meet the promotions requirements outlined below.

The Faculty expects students admitted to the programme to have and retain the knowledge and skills corresponding to the admission criteria listed in these regulations. This grounding in mathematics and the sciences, and the ability to communicate in writing and orally are the foundation of all the academic courses and the work terms in the programme. The student is expected to build on this foundation, developing the technical and communication skills expected of a professional engineer. The Faculty may require confirmation, through an interview or other means, that an applicant is able to meet the expectations of the Faculty in this respect.

A student of engineering should be able to obtain a work term position through the job competition for each work term but the University does not guarantee to place the student in a full-time paid position in each work term. Placement will depend on the availability of positions and choices made by both employers and students. Employers are only likely to offer positions to students who can demonstrate the academic and personal qualities which fit them for the work concerned. Students must be able to communicate in job applications and interviews and as required during the work term. Some assistance in the strengthening of communication skills is available for all students in the Faculty and in particular for students who initially have some difficulty in meeting these requirements. Nevertheless a student who cannot meet the demands of the job competition may be required by the Faculty to withdraw until he or she can demonstrate an ability to continue in the programme.

3) In evaluating applications the Admissions Committee takes into account the strengths and weaknesses in a candidate's academic background, and motivation towards obtaining an engineering degree. Students with weak overall academic records are unlikely to be admitted.

4) Applicants seeking admission through transfer from another institution must have achieved an equivalent standing in comparable subjects. The applicant is responsible for having certified documentation to this effect forwarded from the relevant institution(s) to the University Registrar's Office.

5) Students from areas where English is not the common language must provide certified translations of documentation and may be required to prove, by test, their proficiency in English.

6) An applicant for admission with advanced standing is responsible for having certified documentation attesting to his or her academic and relevant work experience forwarded from the university(s) or institution(s) previously attended to the University Registrar's Office. Each such application when complete will be considered by the Faculty Admissions Committee. No applicant will be admitted beyond Term 5. Because of the importance of the work experience in the cooperative programme three work terms are considered an absolute minimum requirement.

7) An applicant of mature age who has been away from full-time formal education for at least four years may be admitted, if the applicant can satisfy the Admissions Committee that he or she has the knowledge and capability to succeed in the programme. This knowledge may, for instance, have been acquired in studies to a sufficiently high level in engineering or another discipline.

8) Engineering students to whom promotion is denied are no longer in the Engineering programme. Subject to Sections 12 and 14 of the regulations on Examinations and Promotions, such students may be permitted to repeat unsuccessful terms. Those wishing to do so must apply for re-admission in accordance with the Faculty and University re-admission regulations. These applications will be judged by the Faculty Admissions Committee.

EXAMINATIONS AND PROMOTIONS

1) The Faculty constitutes the examining body for all engineering examinations. The standing of every student will be assessed at the end of each academic term beyond Terms A and B and at the end of each Work Term by Faculty Council. The decisions of Faculty Council will be issued to individual students by the Registrar. The status of students in Terms A and B will be governed by the general academic regulations of the University.

2) Any student has the right to appeal any decision made by the Faculty in regard to his or her promotion. Any such appeal must be made in writing to the Chairman of the Appeals Committee, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, within one month of the issue of results by the Registrar.

3) To be promoted a student must, in addition to obtaining the requisite marks and average, complete and deliver all laboratory, project work, and work reports as required.

4) The Faculty Council or the Appeals Committee of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science may promote a student notwithstanding promotion requirements given below. A decision of this nature will be made only for reasons acceptable to Faculty Council or the Appeals Committee as appropriate, and in the case of a student thought likely to succeed in future terms.

Academic Terms

5) Students registered in Engineering for academic Term B must satisfy the following criteria to be able to be promoted to academic Term 1:

a) The student must obtain credit in each of the following courses:

Engineering 1000, English 1080, Chemistry 1001, Physics 1021, Mathematics 1001.

b) The student must obtain three credit hours in each of Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics, in addition to those specified in (a).

c) The student must obtain three credit hours in courses chosen from Anthropology, Classics, English, Folklore, Geography, History, Linguistics, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Religious Studies, Sociology, or in a second language.

d) The student must obtain three additional credit hours.

e) The student must obtain an average of 65% in the set of courses comprising of the 15 credit hours specified in (a) and the three credit hours specified in (c).

f) At least 60% must have been achieved in each of Engineering 1000, Chemistry 1001, Physics 1021 and Mathematics 1001.

6) For the purposes of promotion extra courses required of students as a condition of entry directly into academic Term 1 (or later) will be considered part of their programme.

7) At the end of any of academic Terms 1 to 7, a student must have an average of at least 60% to continue in the programme. Students with an average of at least 60% and with a mark of at least 50% in each engineering course taken as part of their programme will be given a clear promotion. Students with an average of at least 60% and with one or more marks below 50% in engineering courses taken as part of their programme will be given a probationary promotion.

8) At the end of the academic Term 8, a student must have an average of at least 60% with a mark of at least 50% in each course taken as part of the programme to be recommended for graduation. A student with an average of at least 60% and with one or more marks below 50% in courses taken as part of the programme will be given a probationary status. A student with a probationary status at the end of academic Term 8 will not be recommended for graduation until the student's status is transferred to that of a clear promotion.

9) Transfer from a probationary status to a clear promotion or, in the case of academic Term 8 to be recommended for graduation, will entail satisfying the Faculty that the student is competent in the subject of the course in which the student has failed to achieve 50%. This will normally entail re-examination, upon which the student will be declared to have passed or failed a test of competency in the subject concerned, without the assignment of a numerical grade on the test. Re-examination may be written, oral, or a combination of both formats.

Remedial studies, including courses, may be recommended to be completed before re-examination.

10) A student with a probationary promotion at the end of academic Term 1 will be re-examined in the subject matter of the failed course(s) no later than the 1st week of the subsequent semester. A student who is successful in all the required re-examinations will be promoted to academic Term 2.

Failure to submit to re-examination or a failure in re-examination will result in denial of promotion.

11) A student with a probationary promotion at the end of academic Terms 2 to 7 will continue to the subsequent work term. However, entry into the next academic term will normally be allowed only when the Faculty is satisfied, through the re-examination provided for in section 9, that the student is competent in the subject matter of the failed courses.

12) A re-examination after academic Terms 2 to 8 will be at a time determined by the Faculty, but not later than the first week of the second semester after the semester in which the course was failed. Failure to submit to the re-examination or failure in the re-examination will result in denial of promotion or, in the case of course failures in academic Term 8, denial of a recommendation for graduation.

13) Re-examination may be deferred, subject to the General Regulations governing deferred final examinations; however, a student who is successful in a deferred re-examination may not be permitted to register for the subsequent academic term if the deferred re-examination is after the normal registration period for that term.

14) Students denied promotion with an average mark below 60% may be readmitted to the programme and will normally be required to repeat all the work of the term, including courses which have been passed. With the permission of the Undergraduate Studies Committee of the Faculty, an elective course may be replaced by a course deemed to be equivalent.

15) Students denied promotion with an average mark of at least 60% will be required to repeat just the failed courses, in a semester when the courses are normally offered (along with other courses in the University if the student so wishes).

16) A student may not repeat a given academic term more than once when repetition is due in part or entirely to a failure to achieve the average mark required for promotion, and a student may not repeat more than two academic terms in the entire programme for which repetition is required for this reason. Academic terms or courses repeated because of failure to achieve a pass mark in individual courses, while the required overall average for the term was achieved, are excluded from this prohibition.

17) Students may be required to withdraw from the programme at any time if, in the opinion of the Faculty Council, they are unlikely to profit from continued attendance.

18) For clear promotion during the Bridging Programme in Naval Architectural Engineering, students are required to have an overall average in each semester of at least 60%, and 50% in each subject. Students who fail one or more subjects but maintain an overall average of 60% qualify for a probationary promotion, subject to a re-examination in the failed subjects.

Students promoted from the Winter Term of the Bridging Programme will be admitted to Term 4 of the Engineering Programme. In Term 4, students will be required to do only five courses and will be exempted from one of the following courses:

1) Engineering 4011. Ship Statics (students having a Diploma in Naval Architecture)

2) Engineering 4321. Thermodynamics (students having a Diploma in Marine Systems Design)

Work Terms

19) Work terms are scheduled in the "Plan of Operation for the Co-operative Engineering Programme". Work terms and academic terms must be completed in the sequence shown. The dates for starting and finishing each work term are shown in the University Diary. Successful completion of the work term requirements is prerequisite to graduation.

A student may, with the permission of the Office of Co-operative Education, be self employed during a work term, provided that the student and the Office of Co-operative Education agree at the start of the work term on the information to be provided to the Office so that it can evaluate the student's work during the term.

A student who is unable to obtain a work term job or work in approved self employment within four weeks from the start of the work term will be expected to undertake work under contract to a client within the Faculty, another entity in the University, a company, municipality, non-profit organization, or the like. The contract work may be part-time, or occupy only a portion of the semester, and may allow the student to earn an income in other ways. The contract, whether paid or unpaid, must be approved by the Office of Co-operative Education.

20) A competition for work term employment is organized by the Office of Co-operative Education.

Students may request interviews for up to 12 jobs offered in the competition.

Students registered in the Engineering programme give permission for the Office of Co-operative Education to supply their Cooperative Engineering student resume to potential employers.

All placements through the job competition are for a minimum of two work terms. Students who do not comply with the above will not be allowed to enter the succeeding job competition. Exceptions to this rule are made for jobs specified for a single work term or for justified reasons agreed to by the student, employer and Office of Co-operative Education.

21) Students may obtain their own work term jobs outside the competition. Such jobs must be confirmed by letter from the employer and approved by the Office of Co-operative Education on or before the first day on which the student commences work.

A student may, with the permission of the Office of Co-operative Education, be self employed during a work term, provided that the student and the Office of Co-operative Education agree at the start of the work term on the information to be provided to the Office so that it can evaluate the student's work during the term.

A student who is unable to obtain a work term job or work in approved self employment within four weeks from the start of the work term will be expected to undertake work under contract to a client within the Faculty, another entity in the University, a company, municipality, non-profit organization, or the like. The contract work may be part-time, or occupy only a portion of the semester, and may allow the student to earn an income in other ways. The contract, whether paid or unpaid, must be approved by the Office of Co-operative Education.

When neither an approved full-time work position nor an approved contract has been obtained in work Terms 1, 2, or 3, the Faculty Undergraduate Studies Committee may approve a programme which provides the affected students with technical and professional experience expected in these work terms. The programme must be such that the development of the students' technical and professional development, including the development of the students' communication skills, through the programme can be monitored and assessed by the Office of Co-operative Education with criteria equivalent to those used for full-time paid work term positions. Normally, a student may not take part in this type of programme more than twice.

22) Students who fail to obtain an approved work term job for the first work term, and who have demonstrated deficiencies in communication and other skills which may have hindered their placement, may be required to take Engineering 011W, Engineering Practice Programme, in place of the work term. Engineering 011W will be treated as equivalent to a work term for the purposes of evaluation and promotion.

23) A student may be exempted from any work term requirements if he or she submits medical and/or other evidence to support such exemption, to the Undergraduate Studies Committee through the Office of Co-operative Education.

24) A student who has successfully completed at least two work terms in full-time recognized paid employment, and has not failed a work term, can be excused without academic prejudice from one subsequent work term, provided that the student applies in writing to the Undergraduate Studies Committee of the Faculty through the Office of Co-operative Education not later than the fourth week of the academic term immediately prior to the work term from which they wish to be excused. The permission so granted in this case is conditional on the successful completion of the academic term and can only be granted once.

25) A Work Report must be submitted each work term on some phase of the student's current employment. This report must be approved by the employer and submitted to the Office of Co-operative Education on or before the deadline date shown in the University Diary. Evidence of the student's ability to gather material relating to the job, analyse it effectively and present it in a clear, logical and concise form, will be required in the report. Late reports may not be graded, unless prior permission for a late report has been given by the Office of Co-operative Education.

26) The overall evaluation of the work term is the responsibility of Engineering Co-operative Education. Work term grades are submitted to the Faculty Council of Engineering and Applied Science at the end of each work term. The work term evaluation consists of two components: student work term performance as evaluated by a co-ordinator, given input from the employer, and a work report evaluated by a co-ordinator or delegate. Each component is evaluated separately.

A work report may be written or oral. The actual format will depend on the specific requirements of the Faculty for the work term. If an employer designates a written report to be confidential, a non-disclosure agreement must be completed to legally protect the confidential material.

Evaluation of the work performance will result in one of the following classifications: EXCELLENT, ABOVE AVERAGE, SATISFACTORY, NEEDS IMPROVEMENT, UNSATISFACTORY.

Evaluation of the work report will result in one of the following classifications: EXCELLENT, PASS, FAIL.

Overall evaluation of the work term will result in the assignment of one of the following final grades:

a) Pass with Distinction: Indicates EXCELLENT performance in BOTH the work report and work performance. The student is commended for his/her outstanding performance in each of the required components; 'Excellent' has been awarded to each of the work report and work performance and all established deadlines have been met.

b) Pass: Indicates the student meets the requirements of a PASS in the work report AND and ABOVE AVERAGE or SATISFACTORY work term performance, or a performance which NEEDS IMPROVEMENT.

c) Fail: Indicates FAIL in the work report or UNSATISFACTORY in the work performance.

For promotion from the work term, a student must obtain PASS WITH DISTINCTION or PASS.

FORESTRY

GENERAL COMMENTS

N.B. The following Forestry programme will not be offered on the St. John's campus after April 1997.

The Forestry curriculum at Memorial University is governed by a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the University of New Brunswick and the Memorial University of Newfoundland.

Under the terms of the MOU the courses listed below are equivalent to the courses offered in the first two years of the Bachelor of Science in Forestry (BScF) programme at the University of New Brunswick.

The BScF degree takes a minimum of twelve academic terms to complete if commenced at Memorial University and concluded at the University of New Brunswick. When a student completes at Memorial University all the courses listed below, including at least two appropriate electives, he/she can transfer to the University of New Brunswick and gains automatic admission to Term 5 in the third year of the BScF Programme in the University of New Brunswick Faculty of Forestry.

It is possible to transfer before completing all the courses in the Forestry Programme at Memorial University. However, in this case the MOU does not apply and the level at which the student can enter the University of New Brunswick programme depends on the courses the student has completed at Memorial. A student transferring to the University of New Brunswick before completing all the courses in the Memorial University programme may have completed courses in a sequence differing from that followed at the University of New Brunswick and therefore may not be able to proceed at the level expected until course deficiencies have been made up.

A student wishing to transfer before completing the programme offered at Memorial University should contact the Assistant Dean, Faculty of Forestry, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, N.B. E3B 6C2.

There are a total of ten electives in the five years of the BScF degree programme at the University of New Brunswick of which six will normally be from the Sciences (e.g. Biology, Mathematics) and Social Sciences (e.g. Sociology, Psychology) and four from the Humanities (e.g. English, History). A student who has taken more than two appropriate electives at Memorial University can expect to be given credit at the University of New Brunswick for additional electives where elective choices are available in the remaining portion of the BScF programme at the University of New Brunswick. This is an advantage as it gives the student more time to concentrate on required, higher-level courses in the BScF programme.

The BScF degree can include a Wildlife Management specialization involving a coherent stream of wildlife management courses in addition to the basic core of courses that focuses on forest resource management. Additional required courses in the Wildlife Management specialization take the place of the electives.

PROGRAMME OF STUDY FOR THE FORESTRY PROGRAMME AT MEMORIAL

Courses which should be completed prior to registering for a Forestry course

Biology 1001. Principles of Biology
Biology 1002. Principles of Biology
Chemistry 1000. Introductory General Chemistry
Chemistry 1001. Introductory General Chemistry
Mathematics 1000. Calculus I
Four electives*

NOTE: If Mathematics 1000 is not taken, students can take Mathematics 1080 followed by Mathematics 1081.

* Two of these courses complete the elective requirement prior to transfer to the BScF programme at the University of New Brunswick. If High School Physics 3204 has not been completed by the student he/she must take Physics 1200 at Memorial University in place of an elective. Physics 1201 is also highly recommended. While the University of New Brunswick does not require English to complete a degree it is strongly recommended as an elective. Also, the University of New Brunswick does not give elective credit for certain Memorial University courses e.g. Religious Studies, Applied Music.

Within the limitations of the course availability and timetabling, and provided prerequisite courses are taken in proper sequence, a student may progress through the programme at Memorial University at a rate which best suits the student's qualifications and previous academic achievements.

The following courses are listed in blocks corresponding as close as possible to the years at which equivalent courses are offered at the University of New Brunswick. However, the semesters in which these courses are offered at Memorial University is determined by the departments concerned to suit most of the students enrolled and the resources available.

NOTE: Students should consult the Forestry Program Co-ordinator for guidance before each Fall registration, and at other times when course choices are made.

Forestry 2040. Forest Measurements
Forestry 2050. Forest Dynamics
Forestry 209W. Forestry Field Practice
Forestry 2320. Terrain Analysis

Mathematics 2050. Linear Algebra I

NOTE: A student considering early transfer to the University of New Brunswick should be aware that completion of the fifteen Memorial University courses listed above for the first and subsequent years (plus at least two electives) is equivalent to the completion of the first year at the University of New Brunswick with advanced credit for any additional electives which can be applied to the second and third years at the University of New Brunswick. If a student is unable to schedule COMP 2602 and/or Forestry 209W and transfers to the University of New Brunswick, the equivalents of these courses can be taken at the University of New Brunswick as a fall camp (prior to the fall semester) and a spring camp (after the winter semester), respectively. Students should contact the Assistant Dean, Faculty of Forestry, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, N.B., E3B 6C2 for details about this camp.

Forestry 2200. Biostatistical Analysis
Forestry 2401. Dendrology and Silvics
Forestry 2410. Tree Development and Structure

Forestry Field Work

The preceding Forestry courses may require field work. Much of the field work, exercises and experimental work is conducted on the University's 1600 hectare woodlot, situated at Paddy's Pond, 16 kilometers west of St. John's.


CONTINUING ENGINEERING STUDIES

In this current era of technological advancement it is necessary that practicing engineers continually keep pace with the changes relevant to their area of interest in order that the public trust, legislated to them, is justified and maintained. Although the primary responsibility for this rests with the individual engineer there is a need for a structured means, other than existing graduate programmes, to abet this continuing educational process. The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, through its Continuing Engineering Studies Committee and with the endorsement of the Association of Professional Engineering and Geoscientists of Newfoundland (APEGN), has developed the following programmes of seminars and short courses for this purpose. These programmes are one means by which practicing engineers may maintain and improve their competence.

The content of each programme is formulated and prepared to reflect an anticipated need, or in response to a need expressed by the professional community. Information on each pending programme is advertised in the media and in selected professional and trade correspondence. Although the programmes are directed at practicing engineers other interested persons with equivalent background may participate. The Faculty, however, reserves the right to restrict participation as stipulated by specific admission requirements or as it otherwise deems appropriate or necessary. If response warrants, each programme (or some part thereof) is then presented in St. John's (on or off-campus), or in any other centre as required. Instruction is normally the responsibility of a team of university, industry, and government specialists selected for that programme. A participant's successful completion of each programme's requirements is recognized by the University in the form of a testamur, certificate, or diploma as designated to the particular programme.

Further information may be obtained through the office of the Director of Continuing Engineering Education.

DIPLOMA PROGRAMMES

A diploma programme is comprised of an integrated series of seminars, short courses and other study sessions directed at a specific subject area. Approximately 250 hours of instruction, given within a two year period, is required. The core and elective courses comprising each programme normally have specific evaluation procedures and other requirements for successful completion.

DIPLOMA IN ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT

This programme has been designed to meet the needs of professional engineers who, while attempting to keep up to date with certain technical matters, also require a sound background in engineering management. The programme consists of three components:

a) A compulsory set of core courses representing 108 credit hours of study.

b) 72 credit hours selected from a list of management courses.

c) 72 credit hours selected from a group of technical courses.

APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION

This programme is the responsibility of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and is intended for professional engineers. Applications for admission should be made to the programme on appropriate forms available from Continuing Engineering Education, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. Entry to the programme is not normally restricted to any particular time of year, rather completed applications are judged by an Admissions Committee as soon as possible after they reach the CEE office. To ensure that applications are processed as quickly as possible, applicants should provide complete documentation and transcripts with the application form.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Normal entrance requirement is one of the following:

a) Membership in the Association of Professional Engineering and Geoscientists of Newfoundland (APEGN).

b) A Bachelor of Engineering degree from a recognized university, and three years experience in engineering work.

Individuals who do not possess the qualifications listed above may be admitted to the programme if they can satisfy the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science that they have qualifications and experience which ensure a reasonable chance of success in the programme.

EXEMPTIONS AND EQUIVALENT CREDIT

A student who has taken previous management or technical courses may be exempted from taking similar courses in the Diploma Programme in Engineering Management, up to a maximum of 72 hours. Only those courses will be considered for exemption which were taken not more than two years in the past and for which the student's work was formally evaluated.

For courses taken more than two years in the past, applications for exemption may be considered by the Admissions Committee for the Diploma Programme in Engineering Management.

Students requesting exemptions should apply in writing to Continuing Engineering Education, with supporting documentation about the course(s) they hope to use for substitute(s). Documentation must include an official course outline or calendar description and a transcript of the grade(s) obtained.

SUBSTITUTE COURSES

Where a course in the Diploma Programme in Engineering Management has had to be cancelled, registrants to this course may be allowed to attend a similar course which may be offered as part of some other programme at the University, should space permit. They will receive credit for the substitute course towards their diploma.

Students requesting credit for substitute courses should apply in writing to CEE prior to taking the course with an official outline or calendar description of the course(s) they wish to substitute.

CREDIT FOR GRADUATE STUDIES

Under certain conditions credit may be given for courses offered by the School of Graduate Studies. Credit must be approved by the Continuing Engineering Education Committee. Graduate courses shall count as 24 credit hours and the total number of credit hours obtained from graduate courses shall not exceed 48.

FORMAT

The format of the courses offered as part of this programme will be varied. In addition to the normal lecture-type courses offered at evening sessions, there may be day seminars, and short intense courses running a week or more. The format for courses offered in any semester will be announced by CEE prior to the beginning of that semester.

EVALUATION

Each course in the diploma programme will contain an evaluation procedure established by the instructor for that course. A mark of 60% must be achieved in each course taken in order to obtain credit.

FACULTY

Most courses are offered by a team of instructors drawn from the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, the Faculty of Business Administration or other faculties, and specialists from industry.

PERIOD OF STUDY

Normally a student will complete the Engineering Management Diploma Programme in two years. If he/she cannot complete it in two years, the student may apply to the Diploma Committee for an extension which may be granted for one year. A maximum of three extensions may be granted. This means that the total extended period including the normal time of two years will not exceed five years.

TESTAMUR PROGRAMMES

A testamur programme is normally a single course, seminar, symposium, or other study session directed at a specific subject area and which is presented over a one to four day period. Normally there are no evaluation procedures applied to these programmes.

Specific testamur programmes are not listed in the Calendar. Brochures containing information on the subject matter, fees, dates, places, and registration are distributed through an extensive mailing list, and advertised in the media and selected trade and professional correspondence. A registration form is contained in each brochure or is available from the Director of Continuing Engineering Education.

PROGRAMME CANCELLATION

The Faculty reserves the right to postpone or cancel any programme, in whole or in part, due to insufficient advance registration or for any other reason it deems appropriate. Any fees paid in advance will be returned subject to the terms and conditions on the registration form.
