Stakeholder Survey Posted on July 24, 2017July 24, 2017 by Keenan Dixon Every 5 years (approx), the Department undertakes a self-assessment to ensure that it is offering the best quality research and teaching environment as possible.In anticipation of this please fill out this quick 10-question survey to help us inform future discussions and get a sense on what is important to our community.1/5NextThe Department NameThere is currently a discussion to change the department name to include both programs that are offered by the Department; Civil Engineering and Mineral Engineering.Some of the reasons to consider this change is:difficult for Mineral Engineering students to explain to prospective employers that their degree was from the Department of Civil Engineeringthere is a precedent for having a combined name when two programs are offered by one department (i.e. Mechanical and Industrial Engineering)gives alumni who graduated from mineral/mining/geological/geotechnical engineering a department name with which to relate toSome concerns which might arise with a name change:confusion about whether the civil engineering program has changed to include mineral engineering or vice-versadiluting or detracting from the reputation of the Department of Civil Engineeringname would be too long or a mouthfulWould you support a departmental name change to "Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering"?*YesMaybeNoHow would a name change affect your opinion of the Department's reputation?Select valueVery negativelySomewhat negativelyRemain the sameSomewhat positivelyVery positivelyHow do you think industry-at-large would feel about the Department's reputation as a result of a name change?Select valueVery negativelySomewhat negativelyRemain the sameSomewhat positivelyVery positivelyIf the name were to change, how would it affect your support of the Department (including attending events, donations, volunteering, mentoring students, speaking of the Department in conversation, etc)?Select valueMore likely to support the DepartmentSame support as I do nowLess likely to support the DepartmentIf the name were to change, what would you prefer?*Department of Civil and Mineral EngineeringDepartment of Civil Engineering and Mineral EngineeringDepartment of Mineral and Civil EngineeringDepartment of Mineral Engineering and Civil EngineeringDo you have any other thoughts or ideas about a possible name change?Previous2/5NextAre you aware of the 5 primary research/teaching areas of Civil and Mineral Engineering offered at U of T?*YesMaybeNoPrevious3/5NextResearch SectionsIn a 2012 Departmental self-assessment research activity was grouped according to sections:Building EngineeringEnvironmental EngineeringGeomechanics and Mining EngineeringStructures EngineeringTransportation EngineeringDo these sections affect your interactions with the Department?Yes A bitNoOtherDo you think the titles of these sections reflect what is going in industry now?Yes A bitNoOtherFOR GRADUATE STUDENTS: Did these sections, other than your supervisor's research, affect you decision to study at U of T?Yes A bitNoOtherPrevious4/5NextAbout youAll answers will be compiled and considered in aggregate.
