The Northern Ontario School of Medicine has a new banner. No longer associated with Sudbury’s Laurentian University, NOSM University as its now called was tied to the LU and Lakehead U in Thunder Bay for the purpose of conferring medical degrees to graduates. The change that came with the Northern Ontario School of Medicine University Act 2021, means NOSM University can now grant those degrees on its own.
An opportunity has opened up for high school grads to get a diploma in computer engineering, concurrently with a bachelor of computer science degree in Timmins and Sault Ste Marie. Northern College and Algoma University have announced the three-year or seven-term program, beginning this fall. Both schools call it the next step as their partnership evolves to offering innovative programs.
