I. Approval of Minutes
I attach the minutes of the meeting on January 20, 2004.
II. Proposal to Establish Joint Degrees between Business and Engineering
I attach a proposal to establish a joint degree program that would lead to a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in the Katz Graduate School of Business (KGSB) and to a Master of Science in one of six areas in engineering: Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering. We approved a joint MBA/MS in Industrial engineering last summer. The proposed programs are modeled after that one. Associate Dean Larry Shuman (Engineering) and Executive Associate Dean (KGSB) Bob Nachtmann will attend the meeting to answer questions.
III. Further Consideration of Name of Doctoral Degree in Speech-Language
While a very large majority of members voted to approve the name Doctor of Clinical Science (CSciD), there were a few requests for discussion. I attach the email from Lou Pingel, which he submitted upon my request, and which explains his reasons for asking for a discussion.
IV. Presentation of New Distance Education Technology
Dave Miller will give a demonstration (with the help of Nick Laudato from CIDDE) of the new technology GSPIA is using to give classes in Macedonia using distance education technology.
