Winter term 2022 update - USask Engineering details

Further information about delivery of courses, research, and other College of Engineering work and activities

As a follow-up to the University of Saskatchewan announcement to make changes to class delivery and operations effective January 4, 2022, the College of Engineering is sharing college-specific information about delivery of courses, research, and other college work and activities starting January 4, 2022.

  • The resumption of all engineering classes will be delayed till January 10.
  • Lectures will be delivered remotely from January 10 to January 24, after which we anticipate resuming face-to-face lectures.
  • Laboratory and other learning activities involving hands-on experiences will be delivered face-to-face beginning January 10.  
  • This will be a short-term measure. The goal is to move quickly so that the period of restrictions due to the ongoing pandemic after the holiday will be short, and we can fully resume in-person activities as soon as possible.

The Engineering Building, library spaces, and labs will be open beginning January 4 and accessible to all staff and students.

  • Research lab activities can continue from January 4 without special permission. Technical staff members are therefore expected to resume in-person activities on January 4.
  • Faculty and staff can access their offices as required and desired.
  • Staff members who are not supervising research labs and who are equipped to work remotely are encouraged to do so until January 24. Those staff who are not equipped to work remotely can return to the college on January 4.
  • Although the building will be open, all public-facing services, including the Engineering Student Centre, the Co-op Office, and the Dean’s office, will be unavailable for face-to-face services until January 24. These services will revert to remote delivery for this three week period, although some of these staff may be physically located in the college.

Any event planned for January involving a large gathering of people will need to be moved to a remote format.
