Executive Summary
Ph.D., Engineering

This request is for a new degree program, the Ph.D. in Engineering.  The 
engineering faculty of the three engineering departments of the UAF 
College of Engineering, Science, and Mathematics (CSEM) make this 
request jointly.  Over the past six years, the engineering departments 
have produced an average of two Ph.D.'s each year through the existing 
Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program.  Currently there are nine Ph.D.-level 
students in the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program, whose work would fit into 
the Ph.D. in Engineering.  The faculty of these departments believe that 
advertising the Ph.D. in Engineering degree will simultaneously attract 
high-quality students, add to the prestige of the engineering 
departments, and improve their ability to obtain externally funded 
research.  The faculty believes that the Ph.D. in Engineering will benefit 
Alaska directly because much of their research will focus on Alaska and 
Arctic issues.  It will also benefit Alaska indirectly through increases in 
research funding from sources outside the state.  

We are proposing one degree:  The Ph.D. in Engineering.  The degree will, 
at a minimum, meet the published UAF and Graduate School 
requirements.  Admission to the degree program and overall policy 
beyond the Graduate School policies will be determined by a four member 
Engineering Ph.D. Committee, appointed by the Dean of the CSEM and 
approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.  This proposal recognizes 
that most engineering Ph.D. work will fall into one of these emphasis 
areas:  Arctic, Civil, Electrical, Engineering Management, Environmental, or 
Mechanical.  Depending on a student's emphasis area, the day-to-day 
administration of the degree will be by one of the existing engineering 
departments:  Civil and Environmental, Electrical, Mechanical.

There is wide support for this degree in Alaska, both from industry and 
government.  There is a strong demand for hi-tech graduates and this 
demand is expected to continue.  

The new degree program is an extension of the interdisciplinary Ph.D., 
which has been underway for many years.  The engineering faculty 
recognize that current initiatives to increase the size of the engineering 
faculty, staff and laboratories are required for this program to grow.

University of Alaska New Program Approval

Board of Regents Summary Form

MAU:   UAF

Title and brief description:   Ph.D. in Engineering

Target Admission date:   Fall 2001
 
***********************

How does the program relate to the Academic Mission of the 
University of Alaska?
The civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering faculties of UAF jointly 
request a new degree program, the Ph.D. in Engineering.  This degree will 
require production of new engineering knowledge through research and 
dissemination of that knowledge to peers, the profession, and the public.

Describe the State Needs being met by this program.
The new degree will benefit Alaska directly because the doctoral research 
will focus on Alaska and Arctic issues.  It will also benefit Alaska indirectly 
through increases in research funding from sources outside the state. 
There is support for this degree from Alaskan industries and government.  

What are the Student opportunities and outcomes?  The enrollment 
projections?
Over the past six years, the engineering departments have produced an 
average of two Ph.D.s each year through the existing Interdisciplinary 
Ph.D. Program.  An enrollment increase to four or five Ph.D.s each year is 
a reasonable expectation over the next five to seven years. There is a 
strong demand for hi-tech graduates and this demand is expected to 
continue.  

Describe the Research opportunities, if applicable.
Advertising this degree will simultaneously attract high-quality students, 
improve the ability of the College of Science Engineering and Mathematics 
(CSEM) to obtain externally funded research, and develop new areas of 
research for the state

Identify any additional Faculty and Staff requirements as well as any 
existing expertise and resources that will be applied.
This degree will draw on the combined strength of the three engineering 
departments in CSEM, approximately 27 faculty. As the program grows to 
four or five Ph.D.s per year, at least one new faculty and two research 
assistants in each of the three CSEM departments should accompany this 
growth.

Identify the impacts on existing Technology & Facilities as well as 
projected needs.
The majority of the needs will be met within the renovated Duckering 
Building.  Student offices for 10 new graduate students will be required.

Executive Summary
M.S., Computational Physics

Computer modeling and simulation has become a central tool in many 
science disciplines.  Computational physics includes numerical modeling 
and computer simulation of processes in physical systems such as fluids, 
gases, space plasmas, solid state physics, and high energy physics.  
Computational physics is not computer science.  The goal is the 
advancement of physics using modern computer technology.  
Computational physics requires expertise in advanced computing 
environments, in the mathematical background, and in the specific 
physics discipline.  Computational Physics is a new branch of physics that 
is identified by separate degree programs at many US universities.  

New career options have emerged in industry, research, and government 
for graduates in the physical sciences with additional capabilities in 
mathematics, numerical modeling and simulation using advanced 
computational methods.  Incoming graduate students to this new 
program will have appropriate backgrounds in physics, applied physics, or 
an equivalent.  This new graduate program will offer a combination of 
courses involving advanced physics, mathematics, numerical and 
computational techniques.  UAF already offers appropriate coursework 
and this new degree re-packages existing UAF courses to focus students 
into a new career option.

The co-location of the Arctic Regions Supercomputer Center alongside 
internationally renowned research institutes provides a unique opportunity 
for student research projects and the opportunity for UAF to emerge as 
an international academic leader in this field.

Executive Summary
A.A.S., Process Technology

In August of 1999 a group of over 100 people met at a two-day 
workshop to discuss the workforce needs in the process industries.  
Those present included representatives of oil and gas production, 
refineries, seafood processing, mining power generation, unions, several 
of the UA campuses, AVTEC, Ilisagvik, State Department of Labor, and 
AHRIC.  The purpose of the meeting was to share information on the 
current workforce; projections of need for the future; available training 
and rate of graduation; and, to identify training needs.  The motivation 
for the meeting was the growing awareness that due to the aging of the 
present workforce the needs over the next three to ten years would 
exceed the number currently available or in training.  The result of that 
two-day workshop was the creation of the Alaska Process Industry 
Careers Consortium (APICC) whose mission is:

"The purpose of APICC is to increase the ability of its members to provide 
quality education and training services to Alaskans.  The Consortium will 
establish standards for Process Technology education and training and 
strive to collectively reach or exceed those standards." (See Attachment 
C for further information)

Although shortages were projected in several categories, the one with the 
largest was process operator.  APICC therefore identified the 
development and support of a degree program in Process Technology as 
their first priority.  The standards Committee identified the basic job 
functions of an operator and from that developed the "Process Operator 
Critical Work Functions, Key Activities and Performance Criteria" found in 
Attachment A.  The Curriculum Committee used this information to 
design a degree program that can train individuals to these standards. BP 
Exploration hired a consultant work with the Curriculum Committee to 
develop the new courses and instructional materials to develop the new 
courses and instructional materials.  This person also worked closely with 
TVC faculty and Director.

These two committees had members from both industry and education 
and there was a crossover membership between standards and 
curriculum.  The standards and subsequently the Process Technology 
A.A.S. degree were reviewed and approved by the APICC membership.

APICC and its members have also provided support by:
	Developing promotional materials to recruit students into the 
courses
	Helping to recruit adjuncts from the industry to teach the courses
	Offering scholarships
	Making summer internships available
	Donating equipment for use in the instruction
	Industrial site tours

Within the University of Alaska the two lead campuses have been Kenai 
Peninsula College and Tanana Valley Campus with courses also offered in 
Anchorage through MAPTS, a component of UAA.  The University received 
$250,000 in FY’01 funding for the Process Technology initiative.  These 
funds have been allocated between the three sites for continued 
curriculum development, instruction, training of instructors, equipment 
and materials.  The response to the initial course offerings has been 
strong with some sections at each site reaching maximum enrollment.

This degree proposal has been developed at the request of and with the 
involvement of the companies that will hire its graduates.  It is an 
opportunity for the University of Alaska to be responsive to the needs of 
industry and to partner with industry to meet the needs of the State by 
training Alaskans to work in Alaska.

In addition, the following groups and individuals have participated in the 
review of and/or made recommendations regarding the proposed Process 
Technology degree: (See Attachment B)

	Tanana Valley Campus Advisory Council
	Alaska Process Industrial Careers Consortium
	Richard Campbell, President, Alaska, BP Exploration Inc.

University of Alaska New Program Approval

Board of Regents Summary Form


MAU:   UAF

Title and brief description:  

The Process Technology program provides training for students who seek 
employment in the industries that use and control mechanical, physical or 
chemical processes to produce a final product. The program provides 
technical, management, general education, and regulatory training. The 
first Process Technology courses were presented during the spring 2000 
semester. 25 students entered the program in spring 2000 and there are 
presently 76 students enrolled.

The Process Technology AAS program has been developed cooperatively 
between UAA and UAF.  In partnership with the Alaska Process Industry 
Career Consortium, TVC, KPC and MAPTS have developed a common 
curriculum that will allow for maximum student flexibility.  

Target Admission date: 	Fall 2001

(Students have been taking the courses as special topics since spring 
2000.)

***********************

How does the program relate to the Academic Mission of the 
University of Alaska?

The proposed Associate of Applied Science Degree in Process Technology 
addresses the UA goal to "Focus academic programs and services on 
state and student needs" with the objective to "meet the highest 
demands in our region for professional education and workforce training."  
The Tanana Valley Campus has a long history of working with industry on 
both a local and statewide basis to develop and offer training programs to 
meet their needs.  Vocational education has always been an important 
component of this college.

Describe the State Needs being met by this program.

The AAS degree in Process Technology is designed to provide 
educations/training that will enable individuals in Alaska to obtain 
employment in the industries that use and control mechanical, physical or 
chemical processes to produce a final product.  In Alaska this includes the 
process industries of oil and gas production; chemical manufacturing; 
petroleum refining; mining and refining; power generation and utilities; 
water and wastewater treatment; and seafood and other food processing.

This program was developed in response to a request from the Alaska 
Process Industry Careers Consortium (APICC), which was organized to 
create, connect and enhance the quality of training, and educational 
programs that prepare Alaskans for good jobs.  Industry is facing a skilled 
workforce shortage both in Alaska and nationwide.  The present 
workforce is aging, technical skill requirements are increasing, and 
adequate and appropriate training to meet the project demand does not 
exist.  The process industry has a need for over 50 new employees 
annually in Alaska.

Other factors contributing to the workforce shortage are the ups and 
down in employment opportunities in the oil and gas industry and 
enrollment in related training programs declined.  Not only did existing 
workers see no reason to upgrade their skills, but also high school 
graduates did not consider this a good career choice.

What are the Student opportunities and outcomes?  The enrollment 
projections?

Upon completion of the program students will possess the training and 
skills for employment as an entry-level process operator as indicated by 
the following student outcomes

_ Graduates will be able to maintain a safe work area.
_ Graduates will be able to monitor area operations.
_ Graduates will be able to maintain process parameters.
_ Graduates will be able to maintain emergency response 
preparedness.
_ Graduates will be able to maintain regulatory compliance.
_ Graduates will be able to coordinate maintenance activities.
_ Graduates will be able to perform administrative activities 
appropriate to the job.
_ Graduates will be able to continue professional development.

course is brought on line all faculty teaching that course will receive an 
instructor’s manual and training.  They will also be involved in a review 
process to identify any needed revisions. This program has the full 
support of the process industries and they are committed to helping to 
identify and recruit qualified adjuncts.  As enrollment increases there will 
be a need to hire an additional full time faculty member.  This will not 
occur until year 4 or 5.

The vocational shops and classrooms at TVC are adequate to support this 
program.  Initially the Fairbanks program will use classroom space at the 
Hutchison Career Center.

Some resource materials will need to be purchased for the library.  This 
will not be extensive as there are a limited number of publications 
available in this field.  Equipment to support this program will be 
extensive.  TVC will need to acquire a significant amount of equipment.  
APICC and its members have made a commitment to provide much of the 
equipment needed at both sites through company donations.  It is 
anticipated that some items will still need to be purchased and funding 
has been provided through the UA initiatives process.

salary scales are below market, that new faculty hires are adding to salary 
compression, and that there remains an unresolved and now exacerbated 
issue of salary inequity; and,

WHEREAS, the 2001 UAF Accreditation Self-study Draft on Standard 4-Faculty 
(April 2001 revised version) claims (a) "UAF salaries lag 11.5% behind 
peer institutions and this difference is statistically significant", and (b) 
"Assistant and Associate Professor salaries are around 6.5% below and 
Full Professors are about 19.5% below average and these deviations are 
statistically significant" (sources referenced include AAUP June 2000 data 
and OSU 2000 salary data, compared to UAF data supplied by UA Office 
of Labor Relations); and,

WHEREAS, the UAF Faculty Senate retains it prerogative to address issues of 
faculty concern notwithstanding the fact that faculty compensation is a 
mandatory item of collective bargaining; now
 
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT the UAF Faculty Senate recommends 
that the University Administration address heightened faculty concerns 
about compensation by (1) analyzing the University’s faculty 
compensation program in accord with Board of Regents Regulation 
R04.05.040B.2.c, and (2) issuing a report with results of this analysis and 
correlative recommendations, this report to be issued to the University’s 
faculty governance representatives no later than March 15, 2002.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #102 on May 7, 2001:


MOTION
=======

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend Section 3 (Article V:  Committees, 
standing, Permanent) of the Bylaws by deleting E. 4. (Committee to Nominate 
Commencement Speaker and Honorary Degree Recipients).


[[   ]]  = 	Deletion
CAPS  = 	Additions


Sect. 3   	(ART V:  Committees)

STANDING

A.	An Administrative Committee will be composed of the 
	chairpersons of all standing Senate Committees and of 
	permanent Senate committees. [[except the Committee 
	to Nominate Commencement Speakers and Honorary 
	Degree Recipients. ]]

PERMANENT

[[4. 	The Committee to Nominate Commencement Speaker and 
	Honorary Degree Recipients will nominate commencement 
	speakers and candidates for honorary degrees as specified 
	in University Regulation 10.03.02.  This Committee will 
	work in concert with the University of Alaska Fairbanks 
	Office of University Relations to review the nominee files 
	and make a formal nomination to the Chancellor.]]


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE:  	Because of it's heavy administrative load, 
		this committee more appropriately belongs under the 
		Provost office.  A large portion of the committee work 
		is conducted during the summer months.  University 
		Regulation 10.03.02 stipulate that nominations must be 
		review by a faculty committee.  However, it does not have 
		to be a Faculty Senate committee.  The committee will 
		continue to have Faculty Senate representation.
