Actions following from Minutes
The two program revisions (CS Co-op and CE) were submitted for approval by Faculty UGEC. CS Co-op revision was approved. On the CE revision, we were asked to send it to other faculties that had joint programs with CE, as well as await input from Biomed Eng, who have a joint program with CE. Biomed has since responded, asking for course authority on the document to be updated to reflect the one on record. The document has also been forwarded to Presiding Members of Law, Science, Arts, ASB as well as HoS, Biomed Eng, for approval. The current status is: ASB to consider at its Standing Committee meeting of July 30th, Science has no objections, Biomed approves with change to program authority, Law has pointed out some errors in the listing of Law courses, and will consider a revised document at its 12th Aug meeting.
