Comments:  "The changes are intended for implementation in 2009-2010. Please note the Faculty of Science deleted Section 193.8 Environmental Physical Sciences and the changes were circulated through GFC on June 11, 2008. The earlier circular omitted the deletion of Section 193.8.2 Industrial Internship Program. Section 193.8.2 is now being posted to ensure clarity with respect to the deletion of this section."
