An organisation, not far from where I work has decreed that everyone use a new content management system with long-form naming of pages,
such as this.

http://www.gla.ac.uk/departments/electronicsandelectricalengineering/postgraduatestudy/taughtdegrees/electronicselectricalengineering/computercommunications1/

Now putting this in manually or embedding it in an email is going to be interesting. Has anyone seen this sort of trend anywhere else?

This isn't only a trend, probably they wont this CMS to be SEO friendly, but they don't know that too long URLs are neither SEO friendly nor user-friendly. Good idea but shoddy workmanship.

You can always cut any links using http://gourl.org .
