Report on Diploma Programs 1983-84  (continued)
ADULT EDUCATION
There were 26 new students admitted to this program during the year.
Two additional courses on this program (ADED 327 and EDPS 301) were made
available by G.I.S. in this past year, thus making a total of four courses
(6 units) available in this way. Two further courses, ADED 330 and EDPS
401, are under preparation.
With assistance from C.I.D.A., the Diploma program is being offered to a
group of educators in Brazil.  This project was launched in June, 1984.
As of June 30, 1984, the time limit had expired for those who were already
in the program when the revised Diploma Program was introduced in the
spring of 1980.
COUNSELLING PSYCHOLOGY
The introduction of the revised graduate program has been postponed until
the fall of 1985. The diploma in Counselling Psychology will continue to
be offered until that time.
EDUCATION OF THE DEAF
Enrolment remained strong in this program and there was an increase in
attendance under the Interprovincial contract. Five Saskatchewan students
and four from Manitoba successfully completed their studies at UBC.
Employment statistics for graduates of this program continue to indicate
that the job market is strong for teachers of the deaf. U.B.C.'s diploma
programs continue to attract high calibre students from across Canada.
EDUCATION OF THE MENTALLY RETARDED
The diploma in the Education of the Mentally Retarded is not available in
1984-85. The program will resume in the fall of 1985 when its coordinator
returns from sabbatical leave.
EDUCATION OF THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED
Three students came from Manitoba, one from Ontario and one from Alberta.
All graduates are working in the field and maintain the 100% employment
record in a difficult year. Two students have been employed as
resource/itinerant teachers for visually impaired, multihandicapped/blind
in Ontario and one in each of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland,
Vancouver, Surrey, and Terrace, British Columbia.
In the summer of 1984 the B.C. Ministry of Education helped sponsor the
second program in orientation and mobility. In this last phase of
training, the program participants learned to develop independent mobility
skills in multihandicapped blind persons. The program received excellent
support from the Field Development Office, the CNIB and the community.
Practica were carried out at Woodlands School in New Westminster. 8269.
Wednesday, November 14, 1984.
Faculty of Education
Report on Diploma Programs 1983-84  (continued)
ENGLISH EDUCATION
This program is of greatest interest to practising teachers who do the
required coursework on a part-time basis. These teachers seem more
interested in taking professional courses related to Language Arts after
the completion of their B.Ed, degrees than they do in beginning work on
Master's degrees.
Of those students enrolled in courses during 1983-84, 10 completed the
requirements in the Spring and another three will be awarded diplomas this
Fall. In 1984-85 five students are taking courses leading towards the
Diploma in English Education.

Supplemental Examination Policy
The following proposal had been circulated:
Recommendat ion:
That the section "Supplemental Examinations" on p. 17 of the
1984/85 Calendar be amended to include the following
regulations:
" Supplemental  examinations  are  not  granted  to  students
registered in a graduate program.
A course in which a grade of less than 65% was obtained may
be repeated for a higher standing if recommended by the
Department and approved by the Dean of Graduate Studies."
Dean Suedfeld  )     That supplemental examinations not be
Dr. Gilbert   )     granted to students  registered  in a

THE CENTRE FOR METALLURGICAL PROCESS ENGINEERING
Past and Present Activities
The Department of Metallurgical Engineering at U.B.C. wishes to foster the
establishment of a Centre for Metallurgical Process Engineering. The
Centre initially will formally place an umbrella over existing research
activity which is both far ranging and internationally recognized. Thus
metallurgical process engineering is not new to U.B.C. but stems from
pioneering research conducted in the 1940's and 50's by Frank Forward.
This early work on pressure leaching of sulphide minerals led to the
development of the Sherritt Process which was implemented by Sherritt
Gordon and continues in use today. In recent years process research has
been expanded and strengthened in the extraction and forming of both
non-ferrous and ferrous metals. Processes currently under study include
on the non-ferrous side:
(1) flash smelting
(2) copper converting
(3) slag cleaning/reduction
(4) direct-chill casting
(5) hydrometallurgy processing
(6) refractories
and on the ferrous side:
(1) cokemaking
(2) limestone calcination
(3) coal-based direct reduction
(4) electric furnaces
(5) ladle (injection) metallurgy
(6) continuous casting (billets, blooms, slabs)
(7) ingot casting
(8) remelting processes
(9) reheating furnaces
(10) rolling
(11) heat treatment (microstructural engineering)
(12) welding, joining
(13) refractories
In all, fifty research projects are being conducted on these processes by
nine faculty members together with graduate students, research associates
and technicians. Many of the projects are interdisciplinary requiring the
cooperative efforts of faculty within the Metallurgical Engineering or
joint work with members of other departments such as Chemical or Civil
Engineering. 8271.
Wednesday, November 14, 1984.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Centre for Metallurgical Process Engineering  (continued)
" Process engineering research at U.B.C. is characterized by close
involvement with co-operating metallurgical companies in Canada and the
U.S.A. Currently joint projects are being pursued with companies such as
Stelco, Comineo, Noranda, Kennecott, Union Carbide, Inspiration Copper,
Consarc and Cameron Iron Works. Thus many projects involve measurements
in plant on operating processes. At the same time there has been an
increasing emphasis on mathematical modelling of metallurgical processes
using the computer, on physical modelling aided by advanced techniques
such as laser-doppler, velocimetry and on the development of pilot
plants. In the Department, a rotary kiln, electroslag remelting furnace
and electroslag welder are being operated on a pilot scale; plans are
underway to construct a pilot flash smelting furnace.
Support for this process research is garnered from both industry and
government. Currently the annual budget for these activities is of the
order of $1 million.
Research activities in process engineering at U.B.C. are recognized
internationally. In the last five years, fifteen major international
awards have been give to metallurgical engineering faculty for their
research. Each year students and researchers are attracted from all parts
of the globe; for example students are frequently sent from Japanese
steel companies to study process engineering in the Department. In 1979
Stelco, Canada's largest steel company, endowed U.B.C. with the Stelco
Chair in Process Metallurgy, in recognition of the research being
conducted on iron- and steel-making.
Plans for the Centre
The Centre for Metallurgical Process Engineering is being proposed to
sustain the existing research activities and to foster new programmes in
areas where there are weaknesses. The Centre formalizes the nature and
extent of our research and enhances our ability to develop
interdisciplinary projects within the Department and with other
departments in the Faculty of Applied Science and Faculty of Science.
Thus it is expected that increased research funding and new people will be
attracted by the creation of programmes in hot rolling, microstructural
engineering, flash smelting, slag reduction and so on.
The Centre will place emphasis on our strengths while showing up our
weaknesses. It will continue to encompass both extractive- and
physical-metallurgy processes, that is spanning metal concentrate to
finished metal products. It will be involved equally in ferrous and
non-ferrous processes to facilitate cross-transfer of technology and basic
knowledge. For too many years these giant industries have stood together
like two solitudes. Emphasis will be placed on interdisciplinary studies
which reflects the complexity of both metallurgical unit operations and
overall process routes. The Centre will continue the tradition of
emphasizing quality and excellence in the pursuit of metallurgical-process
research. The Centre will strive to develop further the close links that
already exist between our Department and the metallurgical industry; and
joint projects with Canadian (and other) companies will continue to be
sought. 8272.
Wednesday, November 14, 1984.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Centre for Metallurgical Process Engineering  (continued)
By its nature the Centre will operate close to the university/industry
interface and will be involved in the transfer of technology to industry
as well as in the creation of basic knowledge. This will include the
presentation of courses to industry with which we have considerable
experience. An example is a recent three-day short course on the
continuous casting of steel billets offered by the Department. Based
largely on our own research, the course attracted thirty-five steelmakers
from all parts of North America.
Most of the research conducted will involve graduate students and faculty
as is currently the case. However this does not preclude undertaking
contract research, subject to university regulations.
The Centre will make no demands of either space or finances from the
university, at least initially. Indeed it is expected that the Centre
will have quite the opposite effect, by virtue of generating research
funds of the order of $2 million per annum within a few years of
inception. A long-term goal of the Centre will be to attract sufficient
support to justify the building of a large pilot-plant facility which
could be shared with other Departments having a need for such space.
Chemical Engineering is an obvious candidate.
Organization
In accordance with university requirements the Centre will be headed by a
Director. A person has not yet been chosen for this position and in the
meantime the organizing of the Centre has been the responsibility of
Prof. J.K. Brimacombe. An interim Management Committee has also been
organized to assist with the establishment of the Centre. If approved the
Centre will have a Board of Management comprising the Dean of Graduate
Studies (Chairman), the Deans of Science and Applied Science and the Head
of the Department of Metallurgical Engineering. In addition, a Technical
Advisory Council is being formed to provide effective communication with
the Canadian metallurgical industry. The Council will consist primarily
of the Research Directors, or their designates, of the major Canadian
ferrous and non-ferrous companies as well as government and university
representatives. Letters requesting participation on the Technical
Advisory Council have been sent to the following individuals.
J.C. McKay Research Director, Stelco
N.G. Thomas Research Director, Dofasco
T.J. Burgan Research Director, Algoma
J.G. Thompson Metallurgical Manager, Atlas Steels
D.F. Gunning President, International Marble and Stone
P. Tarassoff Research Director, Noranda
C.A. Sutherland Research and Development Manager, Comineo
M. Clegg Research Director, Sherritt-Gordon
M.C.E. Bell Vice President, Research and Technology, Inco
J.P. McGeer Research Director, Alcan 8273.
Wednesday, November 14, 1984.
Faculty of Graduate Studies
Centre for Metallurgical Process Engineering  (continued)
" The composition of the Council reflects the balance to be struck in the
Centre between ferrous and non-ferrous processes. The Council will meet
annually to assess research in progress and to review new proposals for
research programmes. The Council also will provide advice on research
avenues that should be pursued.
Because the Centre will be interdisciplinary in nature, the cooperation of
other departments at U.B.C. has been sought. Letters have been sent to
the following departments.
Mining and Mineral Process Engineering
Mechanical Engineering
Civil Engineering
Chemical Engineering
Electrical Engineering
Geological Sciences
Chemistry
Physics
What is being requested of the departments at this time is an expression
of support for the Centre and an indication of willingness to participate
in interdisciplinary projects within the Centre. The list of departments
is not exclusive and undoubtedly will be augmented as plans unfold.
Statement in Calendar
It is proposed that the following statement concerning the Centre appear
in the Calendar.
The Centre for Metallurgical Process Engineering
Director:  to be chosen
The Centre for Metallurgical Process Engineering has been established to
facilitate and foster research and graduate training related to
metallurgical processes. The Centre encompasses processes in both the
ferrous and non-ferrous industries from raw materials preparation to metal
finishing. Emphasis is placed on interdisciplinary studies which reflects
the complexity of overall process routes and individual unit operations.
The Centre actively promotes closer links with the metallurgical industry
together with the involvement and support of the industry of programmes
within the Centre.
The Centre has a Board of Management comprising the Dean of Graduate
Studies (Chairman), the Deans of Science and Applied Science and the Head
of the Department of Metallurgical Engineering.
A  Technical  Advisory  Council  with  representatives  from  industry,
government and the university has been formed to make recommendations
concerning research projects and graduate programs." 8274.

In response to a query, the Chairman of the Agenda Committee stated
that the Agenda Committee had agreed that the proposal be circulated to
Senate for information and that only the proposed Calendar statement
required approval.
Vice-President Smith stated that he was in the process of reviewing all
Centres on campus and that the question of Senate approval of such units
would also be considered.
Dean Suedfeld  )     That the Calendar statement for the
Dean Beagrie  )     Centre   for   Metallurgical   Process
Engineering be approved.
In response to a further query, Dean Suedfeld stated that there will be
a Board of Management which will consist of several of the Deans of the
University in related areas and the control of policies will be in the
hands of the Board of Management. He also stated that there will be
technical advice concerning the kind of research that will be done from
Research Directors in the various major corporations involved. The
specific research projects and contracts will be in the hands of
individual faculty members in accordance with the general procedures of
the University for contract research. student research associated with
the Centre will be on the same basis as student research for Graduate
students, primarily working with faculty members on any kind of funded
research on the same basis as any other part of the University.
The motion was put and carried.
