Earth Resource & Science Web Chat - Shared screen with speaker view
If you’re just joining us, participants: drop the major you are interested in studying or the earth science department you are interested in learning more about in to the chat!
Glad to hear you are interested in MME. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to chat with you separately whenever we can find a time. I should have time today after this if you want to talk in a while.
Hi Bobby — my email is email@example.com. I would be happy to talk to you when we can find time about MechE (I can talk MechE too) or you can talk to that department’s adviser. I am sure we would be pleased to talk to you about a materials masters.
The best way to get involved in research is upon arrival (if not before) go around your department and any other department that interests you and talk to the faculty. Don’t be discouraged if we say we don’t have openings. We always have more interest than we have opportunities but keep asking. Many of the faculty take undergrads and there is no reason not to ask as a freshman. The freshmen have more time than upper class students.
Yes, there is Free Pour Fridays that are open to anyone. When we are on campus typically you have to sign up by Thursday afternoon and you can do aluminum casting. We are hoping to be able to do brass and bronze this coming year and maybe steel too.
Geneva - hopefully that answered your question about study abroad opportunities. Is there any particular area that you're interested in visiting?
… and then extractive metallurgists take what the mining people dig up and we make them into metals (including separating rare earths, which is particularly difficult)
I don't believe we have something specific to Switzerland, but Austria and Italy land you on both sides and we do have active programs there! :-)
Yes, on occasion our students do go offshore on field sessions. It depends on where that trip goes that year. In the past, we've gone offshore California, Alaska, and Louisiana.
Yes. Talk to the international programs office for study abroad. Start planning now.
