Merger of Departments at U of S College of Engineering

During 2009-10, the College of Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan undertook an administrative restruc-turing. A new department structure was approved by University Council in June and effective July 1, 2010, the de-partments of Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering and Chemical Engineering were merged into a new Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. This merger has no direct impact on the undergraduate or graduate programs that were offered by the previous departments. The new department will continue to deliver two separate undergraduate programs: Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering, and Chemical Engineering. No changes have been made to either of these programs as a result of the restructuring. As well, graduate programs were not affected, nor is funding for graduate students. Professor Charles Maule, Limited Member (Engineering) has been appointed Acting Department Head. The College Executive and members of the Department has expressed its sincere appreciation to Professor Lope Tabil, P.Eng, for his years of service as department head of Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering. Faculty, staff, and students of the previous Department of Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering also recognize the years of service, teaching, and dedication of two staff and two faculty whose employment ended on June 30, 2010 as a result of the restructuring.
