Fantastic teaching and learning news from the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science
With a thriving economy in the province, there is a high demand to increase the number of engineering graduates and research capacity in Newfoundland and Labrador, and Memorial University’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science aims to deliver – in a big way.
The faculty plans to double its size over the next eight years, with a significant increase in its student enrolment and research capacity. The $1.7 million investment in the province’s 2012 budget will allow for the development of the expansion plan, as well as increasing international recruitment and co-operative education placement services. Dr. Greg Naterer, dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, aims to focus the growth on strategic areas of importance for the province.
