Pros

Close to Canadian Oil & Gas center
Easy to find job

Cons

No more good professors
Industry doesn't value research in oil and gas
Industry forces the university to give out BSc graduates and no more! They want fresh engineers and import technology from the US.

Advice to Management

Reduce the number of graduate students
Increase the stipend of graduate students
Hire more reputable professors
Separate Petroleum department from Chemical Engineering
Fire some of the professors
