Industrial Outreach

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial University is undergoing major growth. The province's thriving industries in offshore oil, oceans, information and communication technologies, energy and mining sectors, among others, is creating a high demand for more engineers. Memorial's Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science plans to meet this demand by adding approximately 50 new faculty positions by 2020, more than 300 graduate students and up to 500 additional undergraduates.

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial University has recognized the need to work closely with industrial partners in order to maximize the relevance of its programs and to provide skilled personnel and technical support not normally available to businesses in Newfoundland.

The Industrial Outreach Group (IOG), which originated in the latter part of 1998, is the point of contact for outside businesses and organizations, large and small, to access the unique skills and facilities of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. The IOG exists to strengthen the connection between industry and the academic community so that both may benefit from the exchange.
