Interested in Grad School and studying issues related to climate change? Two of Cornell’s IGERT (Integrated Graduate Education, Research and Training) programs are collaborating to host a visitation program for prospective graduate students in a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields. The program will be held from Sept. 13-15, 2012. Applications are due July 16. Here are the details about the two programs:
- The Cornell Earth Energy IGERT brings together students seeking degrees in Engineering and Geosciences in a unique program designed to provide both communities with a common language to address energy challenges. Topics include: Carbon Sequestration, Unconventional Gas from Shale Resources, Fossil Energy Recovery, Geothermal Energy, and Earth Systems Behavior and Resources.
- The Cross-Scale Biogeochemistry and Climate IGERT brings together students and faculty from nine Cornell departments, the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, and the National Center for Atmospheric Research to study the microbial, ecosystem, and global-scale causes and feedbacks to climate change. Topics include multi-scale study of the production and consumption of greenhouse gases as well as global earth system modeling.
