LINCOLN — Though faculty and students at the University of Nebraska at Omaha spoke out against a planned merger of two engineering departments Friday, the NU Board of Regents gave no indication it will turn back.
Six people spoke up and 20 more in the audience came to Friday's board meeting to oppose the controversial merger of the Omaha-based department of computer and electronic engineering with the electrical engineering program in Lincoln.
