The structure and movements of our planet shape our existence, from the life-giving foundations of soil and water to the life-threatening occurrences of earthquakes and volcanoes. EAS is designed for students who are fascinated by the Earth and want to understand it. EAS students get hands-on field experience though both courses and research opportunities with Tech faculty.
As the globe becomes more industrialized, the quality of the environment becomes a great concern. The EAS program is a great place to learn about how to make an impact in this crucial area. EAS students are involved in policy and media-related environmental activities throughout the United States, as well as air and water quality research with Tech faculty.
