    Massey University academics and students are concerned about plans to cut spending by 18 million dollars a year

    Massey University academics and students are concerned about plans to cut spending by 18 million dollars a year


    It's proposing to stop offering science degrees in Albany and wants to cut computer science and postgraduate engineering degrees in Palmerston North.

    Mathematician Gaven Martin says the Albany campus would lose most of its full-time students at the School of Natural and Computational Sciences.

    He says up to 50 Albany-based academics would have to either move to Palmerston North or look for jobs elsewhere.
